I am a 20 year old fresh HRM graduate based out of the Philippines and am very keen to learn more about the stock market coz I have recently developed great interest on how to invest, sell and track analysis. I am new to stocks and I'm really interested to learn more about how it all works.
I have a few friends who follow the same industry unfortunately no one has the time to walk me through on how it all works.. Having said that i am here to interact with people on my own and learn the trick of the trade. Will really appreciate if anyone can teach me the basics and how to get started. Look forward to making new friends and sharing ideas.

As retirement moves closer and closer, he struggles with the same issues that most baby boomers face, primarily, how do we maintain what we have and how do we make it last and grow through our lifetime. His focus is on value and return with an approach to analysis company valuations and long term viability. He is particularly interested in fixed income, derivates, energy, commodities and Real Estate Investment Trust.
