Back in 2009, we listed down Philippine stock brokers offering then an online trading platform. Times have changed and, four years later, more brokers have started offering online trading, with some attempting to differentiate their service.
If you placed money in the Philippine stock market from the beginning of January this year, you would have already lost 9% by now.
That translates to a million pesos worth only P910,000 as of January 31.
This is based on the performance of the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi), a basket of 30 listed common stocks representing the overall movement of market prices and the general state of the Philippine economy.
