    Lucky are the few you bought in at 231.

    If you have stocks related to gaming/gambling then dumb them immediately.

    Ot: Mm....not sure if it is the right thing. PCSO generates 60B in revenues a year and helps 500,000 indigent Filipinos with medical asssistance (the usual UP PGH then takbo sa PCSO). Throwing the baby along with the bathwater.

    It is an open secret that STL provides cover for jueteng. And, for the longest time, it is an open secret who operates jueteng and who gets what cut from the operations. Lumang istorya na yan.

    And, yes, nagtataya rin ako from time to time.

    Lotto is back. i think it was just a diversion for the vetoed anti-endo bill and the reworking of STL. :ROFLMAO:

    my wife and i once thought of opening a lotto outlet, what are potential shops/business you think will be a hit in the next 5-10 years? the past 2 decades we saw the rise and fall of internet shops.

    Currently 225, lowest since August 2017. If it dips to the 200 range, I'm going in :ROFLMAO:

    Mm...am beginning to think that the Smashburger acquisition was a huge mistake. Major profit drag.

    I'm now leaning towards opening an account with an international broker to capitalize on global opportunities (CFD's, forex, etc.) + shorting.. Bye for now, PSE? :whistle:

    Mm...smart money (really wealthy folks) are pulling out of the US equity markets. Reason? Anticipated US recession. When the US sneezes.....

    bad news are not in short supply. China is slowing down.

    what happens when the two world’s largest economies sneezes.......

    locally, we are slowing down, even with build, build, build.

    Where will growth come from next year to propel the markets?

    bad macroeconomic picture emerging everywhere moving forward....

    answer: we get the flu.

    May I know which broker did you use? Leaning towards opening a forex account as well to trade NYSE instead of PSE.

    Mm...Charles Schwab Intl has zero commission equity trade. 25k usd minimum to start. HK in Central office accepts ph clients. Solid us company (publicly traded in wall st.). You just need passport and two proof of billing address. Trading online secured with token security (a form of two-factor authentication). Funds transfer via wire (both ways). Account protection: Securities Investor Protection Corp., up to usd 500k per account.

    Interactive Brokers is also an SIPC member. e-Toro is not.

    so how are you PSEi folks holding up?! my BPI Trade's down 10% overall (with 1 blue chip at 60% loss!). wife's COLFinancial porfolio's fairing better at 7% loss.

    seems this downward trend will continue for a while, 'exciting' times ahead!
