Investing in Philippines: A Day Trading Experience

A Day Trading Experience

It's Labor Day here in Guam and I had a chance again to day trade. 

day trade at the comfort of your home
Since my location has a two hour time difference(Guam is ahead by 2 hours from Philippine time) I get to enjoy two things when day trading: One I have a two hours to place my orders and second I have up to 5:00 pm here to trade.

To day I am finally able to sell my TEL for a profit(not so much though but hey profit is profit). I was also able to sell some stocks that kinda just taking precious value in my portfolio so I just disposed some at a few gains. 

I usually do my orders the night before or if time does not permit over the weekend where I have time to analyze the stock I wanted to buy or sell. The extended trading in the Philippine Stock Exchange does help a lot specially for overseas Filipinos who do trade in the local exchange. Some use other online brokers who might be based in the location  the likes of E*TRADE and Interactive Brokers.

To all OFWs and foreigners who do invest in the Philippines thank you and kudos to us, lets keep on investing in the Philippines.

Buti ka pa, na sell mo na TEL mo... profit na, dividend pa!

Sa Guam po ako sir/mam. Been holding TEL from May this year nung medyo bumaba then hold it till yesterday. Konti rin lng profit pero as they say "profit is profit". Now I have funds for other endeavors. It seems the markets are still affected by the crisis out there so it is good time to bargain.

Stocks are not easy. One must be very knowledgeable before going into it. Look for the right chance, right bargain, and you will see your investment grow.
