Are You into Stock Market?

My colleague has recently introduced me to stock market exchange. I, being an accountancy student back in college, already has an idea about it somehow but still, I wanted to learn more about it. I know two acquaintances who are pretty much successful with their adventure with the Philippine stock market and of course, I would very much like to get some extra bucks with stocks.

We have browsed the internet and have found two reliable and trustworthy sites for online stock trading and investment. Right now, we just took a short break from doing the said research as we seemed to have information overload. LOL. Online stock trading is pretty much easier since we only need Php 5,000 or roughly around US $117 unlike when you'll go with the traditional stock trading, your Php 5,000 will be a laughing stock.

Well, We are planning to attend a seminar given free by one of the online broker since their office address is just a stone throw away from the office. We are planning to be able to start investing before the month ends as the forecast says that they'd be lower but will soar higher by firtst quarter of this year.

We can all just hope that this would be profitable for all of us. Anyone here into stock market too?

Not personally but my job involved investing money from people's pensions so I have built up a good knowledge on it

kat123456 at least you do have a knowledge about it. I am very much wanting to learn more that's why we'll attend some seminars before finally investing :)

I would like to be on that when i have extra money . Maybe you should try it first and tell us about it when you are already successful on it. Good luck.

Actually I am not a trader. I am an investor.

Trading is to buy and sell and make profit. Investing is like buying a house and rent out for income every month for the rest of your life.

My advise is read 50 investment books before you invest. You can play with the demo account.
