How much will I earn if I invest in Stocks in the Philippines? This is one of the Frequently Asked Questions by most Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) who wanted to invest in Philippine Stocks. Of course, who wouldn’t ask these type of questions?. I think this is the most important question you should ask after all. In fact, IMO, this is the only thing that motivates me (financially) – Earning Money.

So, How much money do we earn in investing in Stocks? The answer would really depends also on how much money you invest in a certain company stocks and how the company grows in the long run. The bigger you invest, the higher the returns. Let me just clarify again, Investing in Stocks is totally different from Stocks Trading. People who trade stocks(day trading) face a higher risk compared to someone who Invest in stocks( long term). Of course, these Day Traders are already professionals and they trade stocks for a living like what you’ve seen in movies e.g. Wall Street.

When I first started investing in stocks, all I wanted was to invest P5,000 every month like what Bo Sanchez suggests in his book and after 20 years, I shall retire millionaire. :D. At first, I don’t know anything about it, I don’t how to read the charts, I don’t know which company should I invest. I just want to make my first step towards my riches.  ;-). After 3 months of doing this, I started to feel the boredom. Although, I can see my money growing but for me it’s too slow. And imagine, I shall do this for 20 years? !@#$%^&.

And so, I decided to become a swing trader. Meaning, I will buy stocks when the stock price is down and sell it when it goes up. Rinse and repeat. It is more challenging & I can gain new experience and helps me keep motivated. (Rather than just invest.. invest.. invest until retirement).

I am not saying that this is a better method and you should do this too. This is my own discretion. By the way, before you do a swing trade , I would suggest you study first on how to read a chart. Google is your friend.

Let me give you an example. Below is a screenshot of how a Swing Trader earns money in 1 day (Luck + Chart + News). Normally, swing trader waits around 7-14 days before he sell.

As you can see, he earns about P3,600 in just 1 day. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking… he invested P200k. 😀 But the point here, you can earn more money investing in stocks rather than just putting your money in the bank which I am sure you wont even get a 1k interest in a year.

So, what are you waiting for? Tara na!
