When I wrote my book, I indicated in my Author bio, that I was a trader, business analyst, mother-of-three and beauty-queen-wannabe. Well for the “beauty-queen” part, I was Candidate No. 15 in the Binibining Pilipinas 1998 (Miss Philippines) and a journalist just posted the `18year old video on YouTube.
I just want to have fun then after a low-point in my life, and decided to shake things up a little with this adventure in pageants. My family and friends were surprised because I was more into “books rather than looks” and and them not knowing what I was up to was the fun part. Well these days, in my trading, I have to go back to knowing what I believe about myself because things have changed a lot since I wrote the book, all of a sudden, my kids were getting bigger, (you know, homework!) and then in my desire to share my knowledge, I became an author, blogger, speaker and while my trading knowledge is enhanced as I teach, my life, my activities, what is important to me, changed a little bit. My trading schedule changed too because I have concentrated into the US market, which had a different dynamics — we just saw the US market futures fall steeply down 800 points when the elections Trumped us all.
But the good thing in the US market and what I really feel suits me better is that I could invest with without risking much; I use a “little to move a lot” or what they call leverage — either to have more funds to use (with money that the broker readily lend through a Margin account provided you have $2000) or using Options contract which could let you benefit from the movement of the stock, like Microsoft (MSFT) costing $60 for the stock but only need 50cents for the Option. So with the less risk, I can do more with my life. (Like more beauty pageants? hehe)
If you want to learn to invest in the US market with low risk and high reward strategy, join me in my workshop on November 26, 2016 in Ortigas area. I do the US Investing Workshop in tandem with Invest Right Foundation Workshop on the same day to maximize your learning.
