Investing in stocks is so boring maybe because I don't have enough money. I can't always buy stocks every payday for I have so many expenses. I just decided I'll trade again. I'll allot 25% of my capital in trading. I'll not sell if I'll not gain anything. I PROMISE. How about you? Do you also trade?

Nope I don't. I'm not into stocks though I have money invested in stocks, somebody is doing it for me and I just get my share from that every year.

Have you ever thought of doing it yourself, @toniganzon?

I don't trade stocks. I invest long term with my financial advisor's guidance.

@zarlamain, I'm sure you have already received some dividends. I always receive cash dividends but haven't received any stock dividends yet.

Not yet involved in stock trading but I'm planning to do so. Just doing my research nowadays so I'm more informed. Good luck in your trading!

You're doing the right thing, @allen0187. I also did my research and self studied everything I can understand.

@allen0187, I'm using BPI Trade. I also wanted to have an account in COL Financial but I was told everytime I need to withdraw money, I need to send them a form either thru mail or I can drop by at their office. I told them it's more secured and I like it but due to heavy traffic here in Manila, I don't have time to always mail the form or go there to give them the form. It's a waste of time.

@just4him, do you invest in stocks? I was able to gain 800 pesos when I traded my 5 thousand pesos. I don't use all my capital in trading because I know it's risky.

Nope, haven't traded in stocks only but I am planning to partly, thru an insurance company that is. Actually if it's plain trading alone and you have no savings you put yourself at a higher risk. Better to save and earn and be insured imho.

No, I don't do any stock trading as I really don't have the money to do it. I wish you luck!

Not anymore since I retired in December. I did really good and that is what paid for the move from one state to another.
