Did you know that less than 1% of Filipinos are investing and actively participating in STOCK MARKET?
Why there’s only few?
The main two reasons why is that we normally:
Most Filipinos are natural hard workers. They know how hard it is to earn money. That is why most Filipinos have a stronger emotion when it comes to losing money than when it comes to earning money. They would rather put their money on something that is safe such as the bank than put it on something that would earn more such as the stock market, but has no certainty.
Most Filipinos tend to look at the immediate outcome that it wouldn’t work without even thinking about the process on how the money is used to earn more money. Again, this is the result of the two reasons stated above.
What is the STOCK MARKET?
It is simply where the stock/shares are bought and sold. Stocks change in value everyday depending on how the investors view the company representing stock. If the investors perceive that the company has good strategies for the future and that they believe that the company will earn in the future, the stock price will most likely rise because there will be more buyers than sellers. The opposite is also true.
MOST PEOPLE SAY:
Did you know that you can start being a stock investor by just knowing the basics of investing in the stock market?
Did you know that investing in the stock market is not as hard as you think but will be very rewarding if you invest in it?
So, what are the benefits of investing in the stock market?
Here are some benefits that you can obtain when investing in stock market:
So how do I start investing then?
The very first thing to do is to learn the basics on how the stock market works. There are so many articles, blogs, seminars, and webinars on how to invest in stocks. You may also check FinancePH’s seminar on how to invest in the Philippines Stock Market by visiting www.financeph.com/seminars.
“WE MUST PUT AN EFFORT TO LEARN FOR US TO UNDERSTAND THE BASIC OF INVESTING IN STOCKS”
Second, if you already know the basics, you have to determine if you are a long-term investor or a short-term trader. For beginners, I suggest you go long-term. This is also true if you are busy on your job and just want to have your money work with minimal effort.
Is there any way to invest without so much effort?
You want to invest but you are too busy to learn these things by yourself.
I recommend talking to a financial advisor since they can give you options on how to invest in managed funds. As the term implies, you will not be directly selecting and managing the stocks but you will leave it in the hands of professional fund managers who will be the one to make your money grow in the stock market.
Talking to financial advisors may also allow you to learn the basics of investing in the stock market and would allow you to ask questions. After all, it would be much easier and safer to go in the stock market if you have a financial advisor guiding your way.
