My application with CitisecOnline.com was approved late last week. Being “approved” means that I can now buy and sell stocks online at the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE). CitisecOnline.com will serve as my online broker.
As a first time trader, I was amazed and amass with the data presented. But I easily breezed through with the help of a customer relations officer who is handling my account. Also, I attended a seminar at CitisecOnline.com at PSE building last February 2010 which helped a lot in understanding the stock market.
My first time to buy was not successful. I was not able to buy shares because my order had no match. And I thought that buying a stock is easy just like going to a department store. I hope to be able to buy shares of Globe Telecom today. When I do, I’ll hold on to it as long as possible.
