I know you’re busy. Even if stock investing is one of your priorities and even if you already make time to study, 24 hours a day is just not enough to simplify the technical world of stock trading and investing. How much more if you’re a newbie?
I know your struggles. If I were to sum up all the losses of Filipino traders and investors who shared their stories with me and asked for my help, it would have already reached more or less P1 billion over the past years.
Their losses are not my money. But it pains me to hear such sad stories. What’s more painful than hearing their losses is knowing that they lost their hard-earned life savings either as an OFW or an employee for 40-plus years. My goodness.
I cannot change what already happened but I can do something to stop the causes of unwanted losses from stock trading and investing. You cannot totally eradicate losses but you can minimize it. The bottom line is you should have more wins and a few losses.
As my contribution to the Philippines in terms of not just spreading financial literacy but also to change the status quo in stock trading and investing, I created the Stock Signals Philippines which is a product my company, Moneycules Consultancy Services.
What’s the status quo? It is to trade and invest in the stock market by following someone else’s stock tips or by asking a table of stock recommendations.
That’s not how it should be done. All investment decisions must only be based on your financial goals, investment horizon, and risk tolerance.
I know what you’re thinking. “Well, Jaycee, following someone else’s stock tips is the solution to the busy me.”
Unfortunately, you’ll be forever dependent to that person if you would do that.
That’s not what you want to happen. What you want to happen is seeing yourself with the ability to make confident, disciplined, data-driven, and profitable decisions on your own. What’s what you want to happen, isn’t it?
I have good news for you!
I’ve created a community and a system where my team and I will train you on how to become an independent stock trader or investor. Your membership to the Stock Signals Philippines is a partnership with us. You need to proactively maximize your membership by checking, reading, watching, and listening to all the resources that we’re giving to you. I also recommend that you diligently and regularly talk to us in the forum if there’s anything that is not quite clear to you. Here’s what I want you to have.
