People work 8 hours or more a day without enjoying so much the fruits of their labor until they realized they’re already old and couldn’t even travel or ride a zipline anymore. I say if you started early as you started working saving a generous percentage of your income to invest, you can retire early and enjoy happily what you earned.

How to buy stocks in the Philippine Stock Exchange?

Buy or purchase stocks of a company who participates in the PSE (see the PSE company listing). You will be assisted by a broker or a brokerage firm for your trading. You can buy stocks in person or thru phone call or just buy one in a click via an accredited online broker. You can go to the PSE or just open an account online to buy and sell stocks via an online broker. See the List of Accredited Online Brokers in the Philippines here or the Best Stock Brokers in the Philippines.

How much money you will need to buy stocks?

This is self explanatory but for the newbies and starters, some online brokers offer easy investment and trading options for as low as P5000. That is very cool I must say because it is not too risky for beginners. You will start to learn to invest, buy and sell stocks without losing or gaining so much. You can trade higher amounts and higher stocks anyway as you learn the ways. Knowledge and strategy are powerful to successful trading. I suggest you learn the basics of trading and investing by reading our Millionaire posts. The site has many useful tutorials and trainings for everyone especially starters.

How to sell stocks in the Philippine Stock Market?

How to earn money by trading in the stock market in the Philippines?

Just like any trading, you gain money when you sold at a higher price than when you bought. You just have to know when to buy, what to buy and when to sell and what to sell.

    • says

      If you are 18 and above, you can open an account and start investing. COL Financial EIP (Easy Investment Program) is for students and starters. I recommend it to everyone. It’s so easy to open an account online. For EIP the minimum money to start is just P5000. It’s the lowest I’ve seen so far from all the online brokers out there. COL Financial has been one of the best online trading broker in the country. Read and learn more about their company here If you need to know about investing and trading as a starter, everything is there. Tell us and come back here about your experience ok? :) Congrats in advance for starting your wealth so early! Cheers!

God bless

      Yes I know what you feel. I always check the NAVPU (Net Asset Value per Unit) of the UITF Equity Fund I just joined recently and I am always amazed what if I invested 100,000 earlier last year pa. I could have earned so much hehehe Anyway, just keep them there and focus on the long term strategy. God bless you too! I always love your comments here :)

      • Jordan says

        • says

          This post is about investing stocks directly in the stock market. A Mutual Fund is another investment wheel. We have another post for that here. Please see the related articles above so you can read about Mutual Funds :) Thank you for the kind works. God bless!

    Hi Fehl,

    Your post were really awesome. I just heard it from my cousin that stock market is a good way for investments and since last week I’ve been researching until I found your articles. I’ll probably will be able to gain at least the basics with the help of your articles. Hope to read more of your very informative work.

    Just one question, for an OFW like me would it be advisable/safe to open an investment through online?

    • says

      It’s a pleasure to share useful articles here. I love my readers and I’m happy to help and share knowledge and experience. An OFW can open a broker account. Just make sure your broker is accredited by the PSE. We have the list of accredited online broker here in case you wanna see them. I advise you open an account when you got here in the Philippines so you can sign and fund your account easily.

    hi.. being a mother of 3 kids (2 studying & 1 on the way) and living a middle class lifestyle, investing is not that easy. as i was looking for ideas how to invest, your article is the most sensible one i have read…a low funding investment (just dont get greedy)…and the minute i finished reading it i was decided! this is it! got 2 questions for now, 1 could my first buying of stock be made on line or should it be personally? 2 were there specified banks where i must have account for these transactions? that`s all for now..thank you very much for this article.. GOD bless us all.

    • says

      Hi. Thank you :) If you choose an online broker, yes trading is done online. It’s more accessible and easier. We’re in the computer age now so I recommend online trading. Check though if the Online Broker is accredited by PSE. We have the complete accredited list here in Philpad. :) My answer for number 2 question: No worries, almost every online broker are partnered with major banks here like BDO, Metrobank and BPI. I will be posting more about buying and selling stocks here soon. I’m currently migrating my website so it may be next week. Cheers!

    Hi. I’m 16 years old and currently a freshman college student. I’m in to investing and business but my parents are the opposite. I want to invest in the stock market but they don’t want to invest. If I get their consent, can I start investing? What I mean is will I be able to independently manage my account? Which stock broker can you suggest?

  8. Rap says

    HI! Are there any requirements if you want to invest on the stock market? I mean, if you’re going to do it as a walk-in client, do I have to bring some documents with me?

  9. Ram Romero says

    Hello Ms. Fehl,

    I am an OFW with an average monthly income. I want to open an ITF account in COL Financial for my 3 kids (ages 15, 8 and 6). I want to invest P5,000 alternately for each of them. Will COL agree that my kids have an investment account and their parents don’t? As of this time, I can’t afford to open an account for me and my wife but in the near future, I hope I can have our own account too. Cheers!

    • Marifel Dungo says

      Yes COL accept ITF accounts. Just submit the requirements so you can create accounts for your kids. If your kids reached the legal age, you can convert their account to regular investor. Yes I think it’s ok even if you don’t have an investment account. It’s a free will :)

    Good day. I have stumbled upon your site by accident. I work in the bpo field and myself and a colleague were just discussing about buying stocks. I really want to get into this but I want to learn more first. I have no financial literacy regarding this at all so your help would be a much appreciated. Thank you in advance

  12. StocksPH says

    Simple Strategies that works for me

    1. Do PCA method and a bit of SAM method
    2. During market dips, you should buy more
    3. If you gained 3% and above then sell and look for other stocks that are in dip but do some research with that stock. it should be bluechips

      The first thing you must do is have basic knowledge about investing coz it is risky. Next, have a plan/goal. After that execute your plan. Read our Stock Market Tutorials and Guide here at Philpad by going to the STOCKS tab

    Hi, I’m not employed, I’m a private tutor, online writer and graphic designer. I’m interested in trading. Can I join in trading stocks? Thanks
