Albeit one of the most discussed investment topics in books and even online, investing and trading the stock market can be daunting, confusing, and worse traumatic for some. Nonetheless, these seemingly barriers to entry shouldn’t stop any Juan from studying and continuously learning about the stock market and the rewards it can bring, given proper risk management.
Again and again, we urge people who want to be serious about stocks trading to study, study, study. Come up with your own personal trading plan, come up with your own style, your own screener, your own buy and sell rules. This is not being selfish, this is about being responsible and mature. There is a proper venue to learn, to be taught (in seminars, webinars, etc). There is a time to research and read up on your own. There are better ways to spend your time rather than posting questions in groups and reading the varied reactions (either helpful or hateful).

Missed the Trader’s Summit but serious on becoming a stocks trader or investor? Well here are my notes on the event. Sharing with you my key takeaways on the trading inspirations, some technical know-hows and trading psychology.
PSE: FNI is now at 2.77 which is the 23.6% retracement from Nov2016 highs and 2.33 lows / support. Can the stock break the resistance this time with a slower pace (almost 1 month) compared to previous attempts which were faster and steeper? Or will it be another failed attempt? Other indicators such as stochastics, MACD and RSI are still supportive of a further run.
We should not fall in love with any stock, and we should be able to sell the slow ones (with no attachments) as soon as we find better alternatives.
