Keep the Track on Today’s Stock Market and Your Investments

I’m fortunate that I attended BusinessCoach’s How to Invest in the Stock Market seminar last April 16, 2011. I learned much from Jay G. Peñaflor, a Philippine Stock Exchange Sr. Market Education Specialist, on the basics of investing in the stock market. He adviced us participants that to avoid loses in the stock market, we should gather all available information about our investments.

He said that it’s always good practice to be informed about your investments and there are several ways by which you can monitor the stock market and your stock investments, particularly, for stock price movements, corporate news and updates, and other relevant market information.

1. The PSE website ( is a very good source of information about the stock market and the specific stocks that you invest in. The following are some of the basic infomation available to you in the website:

i. Stock Quotes
ii. Gainers/Losers

d. The PSE Index Chart
e. Listed Company Update
f. IPO News
g. PSE Regulations
h. Trading Participant News

2. The PSE Library contains a wealth of stock market-related reports, books and other reading materials. It is open to the public for free from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 nn and from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., Mondays to Fridays. The library is located at the 4/F PSE Centre, Exchange Road, Ortigas Center Pasig City.
