I like money but I hate numbers. This is the line I often say to people whenever I need to compute for something or anything that involves numbers in general. Hahahuhu. It’s funny but it’s true. Growing up, I’ve learned how to save at a young age. I put myself through college and have been financially independent compared to girls my age. It wasn’t a choice I wanted but I’m thankful of the experiences I had growing up because it made me prepare for my future. To be honest, dealing with money and investment can be daunting especially for people who have no idea on how to do the later. After all, managing one’s finances isn’t taught in school and saving has become a last resort for most of us–because we tend to save only what’s left of our allowance or salary .
The other week a friend of mine & I were talking about how rich people are lucky because they get to do businesses without having to loan from a bank or pool out their savings to fund their business because they’ve got investments they’ve acquired over the years. Thinking about it, I realize how crappy our mentality is about money. So if you want to have your own funds (extra money aside from savings or emergency fund) but your salary is just enough to cover your expenses and a little bit of savings, what would you do? Get into trading stocks that’s what.
I know trading can be an intimidating thing to do especially if you’re not financially fluent and have no or low risk appetite. Thankfully there are many ways you can start trading. And for us millennials who are very fond of using our mobile phones, did you know you can easily do trading with 2TradeAsia?

? ???? ??????? ??? ? ???? ????? The line I always say whenever I’m faced with excel files, computation, spreadsheets and the like ?. While I learned to save up at a very young age, I learned about stocks and investments when I met @gojago He’s such a math geek & keeping updated with the stock market has become his form of hobby. And every time he goes on and on about this, I just pretend I’m equally excited when it’s mostly green & arrows pointing up ?. Now I can really keep up with him because I signed up at @2tradeasia to further my knowledge about stocks & investments. So far I’m enjoying using the app because it’s very intuitive even for noobs like me. Will write a more detailed post about it on my blog but if you’re interested to put your money on stocks, follow @2tradeasia because they can hold seminars for you, your family & even friends to help build your investment portfolio. ☺️

WHAT ARE STOCKS
Investing in or buying stocks simply means you’re buying ownership in companies listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange, such as Jollibee, BDO, Meralco and many more. As part-owner of a company, you can get a portion of the company’s earnings (dividends) or sell your shares to somebody else at a higher pricer (capital gains). These are how you earn in stocks.
