Ghost Month


As the most timely of all issues, the dreaded Ghost Month has just recently started last August 7 and will end on September 4. The Hungry Ghost Month is believed to be the time when spirits of dead relatives return to the land of the living. To pay respect and homage, the Chinese perform offerings and avoid traveling, starting new businesses, and getting married. As such, trading stocks, which by itself poses a significant amount of risk, becomes one of those activities to stave off during the Ghost Month!

Wealth Securities, Inc., one of our expert partner brokerage firms, conducted an extensive analysis of the performance of the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) during the Ghost Months of the past 26 years! Check it out below:

I just want to thank PinoyInvestor. It has helped me a lot in choosing which stocks to trade. I've been getting higher profits from my trades lately. Glad I decided to upgrade my subscription after how many months of just getting it for free.

Since becoming a member, I have profited more than P25,000 in realized gains. The analysis of several brokers is indeed an advantage compared to just one broker. I still have about P40,000 in unrealized profits, so double thanks to you, PinoyInvestor team!

I just want to thank you for the recommendation report that helped me gain profits in one of my holdings. Last month lang ako nag-signup at sobrang nakatulong sa trading ko yung technical analysis ninyo. As per your recommendation, I bought one stock at P8.20. Nakaka-nerbiyos kapag minsan bumabagsak ang stock price, pero tiwala lang! Last week, I sold it at P10.10. Sarap mag-trade! Thank you!

Gusto ko yung dami ng reports, merong fundamental analysis saka technical analysis. The market commentaries are also helpful for me to understand what's going on in the PSE and how these will affect my stock investments. More power!
