Technical Analysis is one of the most boring inventions created by man. Tedious as it can be, it is very helpful and widely used by both ordinary traders and professionals alike. For you to be able to have a consistent return in trading, you need to have a proper trading plan. You can only achieve it by learning technical analysis by heart.
With several intimidating numerical figures showing all around and technical terminologies that are heard for the first time, many find it difficult to learn. It is often overwhelming, but there are some tricks that you would easily learn them if you have the passion to do it intentionally. Sabi nga; “if there’s a will, there’s a way”. So paano ko nga ba natutunan? In my experience, these are the things that have made my journey easy and fun.
1. I became a regular attendee of COL Financial free seminars.
Book lang ng book, pabalik balik ako at nakinig ng ilang buwan kahit same topics.Naging close na din kami ng mga lecturers, libre naman kasi ang snack, so okay lang tumambay (joke). Several brokerage firms offer free seminars even you are not a member yet.
Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE), also, conducts free seminars, so you have to really take advantage on it if there are any schedules available. Hearing technical analysis topics over and over again would help you learn fast and you get to familiarize concepts in trading quickly.
2. Bumili ako ng sangkatutak na libro para matuto at maunawaan ang pinasok ko.
I’m a strong believer that books are always best investments and I’ve proven it many times to this day. Kapag walang pambili, tambay lang ako sa shelf ng National bookstore. There I can read some books without buying them. May mga libreng PDF din naman na makikita sa google. You need to really have the interest to research for good reading materials.
My 3 most favorite books are; How to make money in stocks by William J. O’neil, How I made $2,000,000 in the stock market by Nicolas Darvas, The Trading Code by Jason Cam, a Filipino author. These books are very helpful to the people who have just started in trading.
3. I’ve been watching youtube videos regularly but I have already shifted interests.
Dati magdamag sa mga palabas, NBA highlights or movie clips, pero ngayon tumitingin na sa mga charting tutorials, stock market lessons at business news na gusto ko maunawaan. For the beginners, sa mga videos ng Pesos and Sense per episode, pinapaliwanag din ang Technical Analysis sa bandang dulo.
4. Investopedia became my new-found best friend.
Investopedia is the wikipedia version of all investment topics from A-Z. Masarap kasi basahin at nakaka-adik sundan. Kapag may magandang pdf files, pina-print ko para siguradong mabasa ko talaga. I wasn’t contented on what I’ve seen online and gone the next day, I usually printed those I like most so that I can review and understand it even more. The experience is different when you have it on hand. It works for me.
Manood ka din ng Bloomberg Philippines kung may cable, kung wala, e-like mo lang ang fb page nila to get updates on economic news.
5. Nag attend ako ng mga webinars, may libre at meron din may bayad.
Online na kasi ang uso ngayon, abangan mo lang. Isabay mo na din sa kakahintay mo ng peso fare na promo ng Cebu Pacific. The advantage is that you can join it even you are at home. By doing so, you can save your time on the hassle of the traffic in Metro Manila.
6. I also attended paid seminars and short courses. Hindi required pero pwede mo din gawin.
Caylum Trading Institute is a good avenue you can learn basic Technical Analysis and stock market concepts. They are doing it on a regular basis for an affordable amount. They also have short-courses for those people who want to have a career as a stock trader. Their programs are highly-recommended for beginners.
7. I searched for a mentor that I can look up to and learned from him.
You can learn everything by yourself but it has also a big difference when you have someone who can guide you and would make an impact in your life especially in your chosen craft. Find someone who walks the talk, who have the credibility and most of all integrity.
8. Pinagplanohan ko ng mabuti at pinag-aralan ng maigi.
I went back in learning as a student. Napagalitan na din ako kasi ginawa ko nang bulletin board ang dingging ng buong bahay. Gusto ko kasi makita sila sa lahat ng oras; pagising ko sa umaga, kapag kumakain, at kapag nasa C.R. Aral lang ng aral.
10. Habang tumatagal nauunawaan ko din ang mga bagay-bagay.
Nakahanap na ng sariling system. Ang risk ay di pala kailangang iwasan, dapat e-manage lang. Parang pagmamahal! Weeee…
Hanggang ngayon estudyante pa din ako sa larangan ng stock market. Araw-araw nag aaral at patuloy na gustong matuto. Ikaw ano ang kwento mo?
