Minimal risk, little earnings...

I had an email exchange with Dr. Paul J. Dejillas, a stock, option, and foreign-currency trader ( and he said to me: "I read with great interest about the work and mission you are doing for the people and the community. It's very noble indeed. ...Good luck to you and I am positive that what you learned from our seminar on online trading will certainly open you to some financially rewarding opportunities."

While I’m into online education since 1997, never it occurred to my mind the big benefits of online investing or trading until I joined and learned from the Dr. Dejillas’ Basic Seminar on Investing in Mutual Funds and Stocks Online.

I have been in online education for more than 10 years, but little did I know that a one-day basic seminar on online trading is good enough for me to start confident and in control than simply doing or learning the trade by myself. My experiences in online education helps, but you need not be technologically savvy to learn the ins and outs of online trading.

Online education is a do it yourself thing, online trading is the same. The advantage is, through the virtual trading I decide what and what not to buy, when to buy or sell. Everything is within my control right at my fingertips –whenever and wherever I want. With a click of the mouse I can see the opportunities either a direction up, down or lateral. These are three basic trends for stocks: an uptrend (moving higher), downtrend (moving lower) and lateral (moving sideways).

So what do I do? Let's say I set my target with this strategy: So if I purchase 20 shares of a company at $20 I am willing to risk $5 per share and make an expected return of $7 per share after closing… Minimal risk, little earnings but I think wise investment to support community service initiatives.

Since I know the basics on how to read the trends, let’s say it’s a downtrend line but it shows it’s attempting to set a higher pivot, and it appears it is showing a higher low, then I can still expect a return, and it works! This only means that despite global financial crisis and a slowdown in economic activity, I can still earn and raise fund for Alagang Silid-Aralan (adopt and nurture a classroom).

Alagang Silid-Aralan...

The official logo of Aral Pinoy consists of the feather pen, the book and the sun rising from the horizon, which all put together symbolize hope for knowledge and education, at the same time demonstrate a true Filipno spirit.

The design is creatively done through the generosity of
Mr. Eduardo Barrantes Verzosa, a Pinoy professional web/graphic designer based in Norway ( Aral Pinoy also has its official website ( designed too by Mr. Versoza.

At the moment Aral Pinoy is into
Alagang Silid-Aralan (adopt and nurture a classroom), an initiative to support public school teachers and students in classroom level. To adopt and nurture a classroom anybody (groups and individuals) can be a partner with Aral Pinoy through its ongoing operations and continual improvement of teachers' training, students' learning, classrooms' learning-equipments and facilities.

For Filipinos or Pinoys to adopt is "mag-ampon". The "mag-ampon" means to nurture an adopted. Ang mag-alaga ng inampon (to nurture an adopted) means that nurturing can not be separated from adopting.

Last Saturday (March 29, 2009) I, as Aral Pinoy's convenor, had an initial exchange with
Mr. Santiago Flora, Acting Vice President for Academic Affairs of Quezon City Polytechnic University Aral Pinoy agreed to partner with QCPU through Alagang Silid-Aralan (adopt and nurture a classroom). Mr. Santiago is very much willing to even name the classroom to whoever (group or individual) who would be part of this endeavor. I will ask him to name one classroom to Mr. Eduardo Barrantes Verzosa.
