THE LOST DIADEM OF OPHIR

Sinubukan mo na bang kausapin ang sarili mo sa harap ng salamin? I asked myself: "Who are you?" I then answered my own question, "I am Zero."

And then I wonder, is it me who was talking or the person on the other side?

THE OPHIRIAN RENAISSANCE

Have you encountered this dilemma:

Ako: "Ma, expired na pala itong binigay ni Ninang Ester. Itapon ko na ah."
Nanay: "Siraulo, 'wag! [May pagsigaw! Lols!] Galing ng isteyts 'yan! Binigay daw 'yan nina Mama Rose, saka naman binigay ni ninang mo sa atin dahil andami raw nila stock sa bahay."
Ako: "Hala! Kapag bumula bibig n'yo mamaya, walang sisihan ah!"
Nanay: "Maglaway ka mamaya kamo. Ispam kaya ito. 'Di natin ito afford pag dito tayo bumili. Masyado mahal."
Ako: "Kayo po bahala. Isang bwan na palang expired ito. Sigurado ka po ba?"
Nanay: "Ah basta! Ito ang agahan natin for two days."

Kapag nagsama ba ako ng past trades ko sa blog ko today, let's say from last month, safe na bang sabihin na hindi ito recommendation? Sa mga taong nakakaalam na it's too late na para humabol pa, it's okay dahil alam nilang kabaliwan na bumili pa nito lalo kung hindi naman pang long-term investment ang laro para dito.

OPHIRIAN SYMPOSIUMS

Magandang umaga sa inyong lahat! I hope all is well! Ako nga po pala si _____, also known as Zero. Isa po akong blogger.

I have a question for everyone. Parte ka ba ng 99% ng mga Pilipino na either may komportableng buhay naman or nakakaraos lamang? Ayan, dami pa nahihiya. Ayos lang po 'yan. Ako mismo nahihiya pa ng konti eh hehe

Anyway, congrats sa mga parte na ng 1% kung mayroon man. 'Yan ang mga dapat ginagawang beshie. Lols!

Ako naman po ay kabilang pa rin sa 99% pero natatanaw ko na nang malinaw, sa kabilang side ng riles ng tren, ang mga kagamitan na magagamit ko sa aking paglalakbay tungo sa pagunlad.

THE ETHEREAL SUBSTANCE OF DELPHI

For the ancient Greeks, it's a place where Apollo was said to have slain a dragon, Phyton, who lived and protected the Navel Of The Earth; or where Zeus sought to find Gaia.

Perhaps, it's not really a place but a vessel like a human body. I guess, no one can really tell; after all, delphic means deliberately obscure and ambiguous.

What would you do if you've encountered a dragon? Would you slay it like what Apollo did to Phyton? Then, good for you.

ON THE VERGE OF A BREAKTHROUGH

Whenever our trainer asks "How's your lunch, guys?", we'd usually answer "It was life-changing! We went to bentelog!" Mema lang. Lols! Masaya magtrabaho sa call centers kahit ano pa sabihin ng iba.
Madalas joke lang ito pero minsan, may mga life-changing events talaga sa buhay natin. Perhaps, like a brilliant business idea that you suddenly come up with when you're wearing your pajama and about to drink your milk.

Kaya lang...

THE DIAMONDS IN A ROUGH: A COLLECTION OF STORIES

I've always tried to incorporate some humour in my blogs but I think this is, by far, my worst attempt. Lols! πŸ˜…πŸ˜

The reason... this blog post, for the time being, is empty. No content whatsoever. Lols! Is it going to stay this way? Well... πŸ˜…πŸ˜
There was a time when "Horror Vacui" was considered a stylistic element of all art. And just like artists, nature abhors a vacuum. I am not worried. This post shall be filled with stories.

THE ART OF OCCLUMENCY


The Potato, Egg And Coffee Story is inspiring, right?
Tara patunayan natin na itlog tayo, titigas tayo pagkatapos pakuluan. O kaya naman ay kape, gagawa ng bagong buhay pagkatapos ng paghihirap. Eh paano kung patatas pala?

A SIMPLE AND EASY-TO-USE TRADING TRACKER

Please watch the video to see how to create your Trading Journal. For further info, I've written the step-by-step instructions below.
Ancient Greeks and Romans were using a mnemonic system wherein a person mentally associates items with specific physical locations. It's called "The Method Of Loci". There are different ways to organize thoughts and ideas. Apparently, we cannot use this technique in keeping records of our trades.

Keeping a chronicle of your daily routines, learning materials, trading plans, executions, research, charts of virtual and actual trades, and your overall progress requires an equally organized system. In order to know where you stand and evaluate your growth as a trader as accurate as possible, you need to keep a record of your activities as detailed as possible.

GET YOURSELF A MENTEE AND LEARN MORE

Nakapaglaro ka na ba ng chess? Or kahit papaano ay alam kung paano ito laruin? The basic principle is to move your pieces in preparation, not just for an attack but for that "Check-Mate". You have to be at least 3 moves [or more depending on your mastery of the game] ahead of your opponent.

Now, let me ask you something that you're more familiar with. After the first seminar that you've attended [or the first instance that you've learned the basics] about the stock market, how long did it take you to realize that it's not as easy as it seems? Three years? A year? A month? A week?

I know someone who took five years.

"UBUNTU"

May isang dahilan kung bakit ang lalakas ng loob ng mga Pinoy mag-abroad kahit wala tayong kakilala sa bansang pupuntahan, kahit wala tayong visa at ibang pang documents, kahit halos sakto lang ang dala nating pocket money, kahit wala pa tayong siguradong papasukang trabaho pagdating doon at kahit isang malaking sugal ang pagalis natin ng bansa at pagiwan sa ating mga mahal sa buhay.

Ano sa tingin mo ang dahilan kung bakit tayo ganito katapang?

Kulang ang pagiging madiskarte para mag-survive abroad. Hindi rin masasabi na dahil ito sa kawalan ng ibang options kaya kapit na sa patalim. 'Di hamak po na mas komportable ang buhay ng marami sa mga OFWs nung nasa Pinas pa sila kumpara dito sa abroad.

OFW ka ba? Kung oo, dapat alam mo na ang sagot dito.

PHILIPPINE STOCK MARKET FOR BEGINNERS [TAGALOG]

Ayon sa ginawang pagsasaliksik ng Bangko Sentral Ng Pilipinas, ang kawalan ng trabaho ang dahilan kung bakit 3% lamang ng mga Filipino [adults] ang nagi-invest. Maaari mong mabasa ang nasabing artikulo DITO.

Sumasang-ayon ka ba dito, kabayan? Lahat ba kayo sa bahay may trabaho? Kung wala kayong trabaho, saan nanggagaling ang pangtustos ninyo sa inyong pangaraw-araw na pangagailangan? Hulaan ko...

"ADVANCE AKO MAGISIP"

Some people just don't give a damn with the latest phones and gadgets, the new tv series, the hottest celebrities, the breaking news, the current trends, and fads or any other stuff that you can add to this category.

It's just a bunch of things that we don't actually need and want but multinational companies made us think the otherwise using their vicious advertising and marketing machinery.

Some of you took 3 years to finally see Harry Potter, 2 years to play Pokemon in your Gameboy, 1 year to watch Game Of Thrones or 1 month to check out the trending news on social media like the epic "Advance Ako Magisip". Magkakasundo po tayo kung ganun. Lols!

WHICH STOCKS TO BUY?

May mga epic questions ang mga kabayan na madalas natin nare-receive sa messenger at nababasa sa mga Facebook Groups about Stock Market Trading & Investing.

WHAT DOES "PAYING IT FORWARD" REALLY MEAN?

“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. The unsuccessful ones are always asking,
"What's in it for me?” ― Brian Tracy
What does it mean to help others? We probably have done countless good deeds in our lives from simply saying "Hi!" with a smile to our colleagues at work, giving up your seat for an elderly on the train, letting the ladies enter the room first before you do, even by just doing your job, providing excellent customer service to your clients not because that's expected of you but because you genuinely care about them.
"Cut me and I’d bleed questions, ideas, and love for humanity! A highly entrepreneurial, always curious and resourceful salesman with blah blah blah..."

WHAT IS OUR “WHY”?

Have you ever asked for advice from your friends or family members before making a big decision even if you already knew what to do?

Most of us do. Why? Well, admit it or not but it's because we always seek for approval or affirmation from others. Someone also asked me for an advice. Let me describe him first and then I'll tell you about his dilemma.
"The purpose of this paper [the purpose of having one, like any other purpose has, is to prove something - anything that proves everything man ever wanted - approval], as any other nihilist might suppose, is to deny.
"Having been aware of almost every nano-problem of this society, my understanding is supposed to be altered consciously or subconsciously, one way or another when in fact the only thing that I’ve learned is to think about thinking.

SINO BA TALAGA SI MUM/SUR?


"Hey, __________. Kamusta? Nag-abroad ka na pala ah"

Kapag OFW ka, sanay ka na maka-receive ng message mula sa kamag-anak, kaibigan o dating kabit-bahay out of the blue. 'Yung tipong di mo naman ka-close o kakwentuhan biglang magme-message. Lol!

Pero syempre sabik ka din sa kausap minsan. Malungkot kaya overseas. Kaya ayun chat-chat kayo hanggang maya-maya pa'y... boom! Manghihiram pala ng panggastos, pambayad sa kuryente, atbp.

Wala pong masama 'dun. At some point in our lives, we also needed help. Masaya nga makatulong 'di ba? Mahirap lang talaga ipaliwanag na ikaw mismo, naga-adjust pa at may utang din na binabayaran. We don't wanna hurt their feelings by saying NO kaya kung anu-ano na lang ang sasabihing alibi para lang di makasakit ng damdamin. This is a very Filipino way of responding to situations.

PAWER! [THE PROVENANCE]

Madalas natin naririnig ang expression na "PAWER!" May nakapagsabi sa akin na sa isang Networking Group daw ito nagsimula, 'yung iba naman sabi sa isang sikat na LODI... I think, it came from somewhere else.

I'd like to emphasize the phrase "SOMEWHERE ELSE" because it did not come from a man nor a woman but rather from something beyond humanity's collective consciousness. Some people call it an energy, others call it gods and goddesses, cosmos, source, etc.

P.M.A.

As the title suggests, this is going to be my last blog. I'll be off the grid for a while. #PahingaMunaAnak Lols! πŸ˜…πŸ˜Pasensya na po sa mga gusto sana mag send ng stories nila pero ang advice po kasi sakin 'wag ko muna ituloy ang mga plans ko.

Actually, andami pwedeng maging title pero 'yan ang napili ko kasi katatapos lang namin magusap ni mentor. Yes! I have a new mentor! Hihi 😁

Well, hindi pa official kasi di ko pa nakukuha ang matamis n'yang "OO"! Lols! πŸ˜…πŸ˜ Pero kidding aside, gusto n'ya raw akong turuan at i-monitor. So, I guess that's it, right?

YOUR STORY IS MEANT TO BE SHARED

I just started reading blogs this month and one blogger stood out, and it's for a reason. It's CELESTEI was inspired to write a blog in response to hers. She was kind enough to read my blog and share it on her page, you can check it HERE.

Isingit ko lang po 'yang reblog n'ya kasi flattered ako eh πŸ˜…πŸ˜

That's when I thought... there might be other investors and traders out there whose stories are kept untold like the one who shared his story with Celeste. And then, I wonder, why don't we ask people to relate their stories? After all, they're meant to be shared.

We think that this is in line with our vision, read our MANIFESTO: THE LEAGUE OF PINOY STOCK MARKET STUDENTS.
Let me first thank those who sent messages to show their appreciation and support in our advocacy especially those who are planning and already preparing their stories to be shared. Maraming maraming salamat po! God bless you more! 😁

In order to answer the FAQs of our kabayans

A STEP BACK TO MOVE FORWARD

Have you ever sent a message to a well known LODI [A Personality In A Given Field] and receive a late reply, no reply or worse seen zone ka lang?

Don't be sad, they're probably just busy. They wouldn't be good in their chosen field if all they do is reply to people, right? They're passionate individuals with laser-focused goals but still keep a balanced life.

They have allotted time for studying, planning, executing, tracking, evaluating and improving their system and strategies, not to mention their time for their career, family, friends, self-development and other interests perhaps like politics, reading, movies or baking like mine.


Sabi nga nila, "Time is the most valuable commodity."

STOCK MARKET: AN ECONOMIC FOLLY

Most, if not all, are intimidated by the idea of investing in the stock market at first since we don't know anything about it or we don't know anyone within our circle who does.
Strangely, I didn't have the same worries, at least not until recently.

I only realized how intimidating the market is when I started studying it.

A rebel without a cause, too proud to seek approval or try to find his tribe, I became a nihilist.

WE ARE THE CHOSEN PEOPLE!

Kapag tinanong mo ang mga Pinoy kung ano ang paboritong subject noong elementary at high school, marami ang sasagot ng "recess" o kaya naman ay "uwian". At s'yempre walang masyadong sasagot ng "mathematics"! Lols!

Ganito tayo ka-easy-going at unassuming, masayahin at humble kumbaga.

Kidding aside, magkakaiba for sure ang sagot ng bawat isa sa atin pero I doubt na marami ang sasagot ng "Values Education". Kasi ito na yata ang pinaka cliche na subject sa curriculum.

The thing is...

THE SEARCH FOR A MENTOR

The common denominator of all the testimonials that I have heard from the first seminar that I attended, social media posts that I have seen, youtube videos that I have watched, articles and blogs that I have read, is this... you have to lose money in order to learn, and then earn.

Do I really have to?

I'm not even in the market yet, but there were nights that I couldn't seem to sleep thinking about it. Is it because of fear?

WHAT'S YOUR ALIAS & WHY? [A BEGINNER'S THOUGHTS]

It is not the cloud of anonymity which mystifies the identity of traders with alter accounts that holds people spell-bound; rather it’s the people’s occasional overarching liberty to blame those traders whose only intention was to share their acquired knowledge and wisdom from their own experiences.

That's one of the reasons why we choose to hide behind these masks. Another is for protection; it's not a safe world out there.

But there's one more reason and it's rather curious.

PORT SNAPSHOTS AND LIES [A BEGINNER'S THOUGHTS]

I once heard a mentor said the phrase "Analysis Paralysis" and I immediately could relate to it. I first knew about the Stock Market last May 5 2018, when there were only bears in the market. It was the day that I attended my first ever seminar about PSE and how it works.

The seminar broke our common misconceptions; it showed a totally different path away from the rat race; it gave me hope. Or so it seemed.

It's been two months from the day I first heard people talking about the opportunities to earn a lot of money from the stock market and a month since I received my login details from my broker, but until this very minute, I haven't touched my port. Why? Because I think I know better. Or do I?

ANG DALAWANG KLASE NG T.A.

For me, there's no such thing as Fundamental or Technical Analyses. They're just a bunch of terms that traders are fond of using to intimidate the muggles. FA and TA comes hand in hand, and should not be analysed separately as if they're from parallel universes

OUR ANCIENT ISLANDS OF GOLD

May dalawang bersyon ng kasaysakayn ang Pilipinas. Ang una ay ang bersyon na madalas natin naririnig mula sa mga guro, nababasa sa mga libro at napapanuod sa TV.

Ito yung berson na paulit-ulit tinatatak sa atin kahit na mukha namang nabahiran na ng pulitika, mapanlinlang na simbahan at kung anu-ano pa.

Naalala mo pa ba yung kwento na dinayo ng mga kastila ang pilipinas kahit na marami pang namamatay dahil sa panganib ng paglalayag sa karagatan noong panahong iyon para lamang sa...

EVERYONE STARTS FROM ZERO

“Walang wala”, iyan ang titulo ng pelikulang tinatampok sa loob ng isa pang pelikula na “Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank”.
Parang tayo lang, mga pangkaraniwang pilipino na kung tatanungin kung ano ang alam tungkol sa investment at stock market trading, ang tanging maisasagot ay walang wala.

Who cares? The stock market is for the big shot investors and professional traders who’s been there for as long as anyone could remember. It doesn’t have any place for us, the commoners.
Ay, ingles.

THE LEAGUE OF PINOY STOCK MARKET STUDENTS' MANIFESTO


We live and breathe love for the Filipino People.

It’s our advocacy to reach everyone especially those who are in the dark, unknowing volunteer victims of the capitalist world; those who grew up believing that money is evil and the rich are offsprings of the devil; those who were thought of factoring quadratic trinomial, laws of exponents, the sum and difference of three cubes, the relationship of irrational numbers and many more math lessons in elementary and high school, but never learned anything relevant in relation to their daily economic activities after their academic lives; those who
