          1. If you look at the First Metro Securities Broker online page, the look and eel of the page is quite good. I have a BPITrade account, but my friends say that the first metro sec online is a more friendly site.

            I thnik on-line trading is great fro small players. The important thing is to understand how our market works.

          2. Great news! The RP stock market has been posting record highs. It’s nice to find that we already have online traders. And that they even offer free seminars. Lastly, I like to try the Stock Trading Game in order to get the feel of the stock trading without burning out my wallet.

          4. Hi,

            Can anyone enlighten me please on the expenses normally incurred when share dealing in the philippines. Does it incur monthly charges when purchasing shares, maintenance fees on the share dealing account, cost of purchasing shares i.e. dealing costs, mandatory charges from government etc.

            Thanks for the help. By the way, I did look up metrobanks share dealing website and downloaded their presentation and it looks very good indeed.


          5. I am going to try my hand in Philippine stocks. I will try the online traders you mentioned then will give you feedback based on my experience with them. Wish me good luck!

          6. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reade. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

            If you want to visit my site optionsxpress.

          7. Hi Marie,

            I haven't heard from you since I suggested First Metro Securities Brokers. How have you done in stock trading. If you are not satisfied with your performance, you can do passive investments through First Metro Asset Management Inc. (FAMI). You can find that in or if you want to read my views you can go to for my views.
