Learning from biz.thestar.com.my
« on: December 20, 2005, 09:45:29 AM »
Will be going through biz.thestar.com.my site and ways to gain from it

Go to http://biz.thestar.com.my/
'Market Watch' & 'Market Intelligence' are the ones that I mostly visit to gain new information regarding about a stock

Go to 'Market Watch' then 'My PortFolio'. If you are not a member, do register. It's free the last time I registered.

I will go in detail on 'My PortFolio' some other time. Mean while, do go around and check all the information under 'Market Watch' & 'Market Intelligence'

Creating a 'New Portfolio'
« Reply #1 on: December 23, 2005, 10:44:29 AM »
How to use 'My portfolio' based on julez.lim's experience and style...
(When I started, I used 'My portfolio' as if I am trading stocks but it is not the real thing. A good way to learn and visualize yourself trading in stocks. You will learn to win or loose your fake $$.)

At 'My portfolio', click 'New Portfolio'.
Fill in the 'Portfolio Name', let's say "Construction". Then, click 'Add'
A table to appear.
The 'Symbol/Code' is where you put in the symbol/code of the Stock. Alternatively, you can press a button beside it to search for your desired stock.
As for the Alerts, it's optional. You set the alerts for reasons like you will sell or buy if it goes below or above a specific price
A portfolio can only handle 5 stocks. If you need more, add more portfolios. Click 'Save' when finished.

I noticed that we can only create up to 5 portfolios, whereby each portfolio can store only 5 stocks

Good post... this is going to be very helpful. Maybe one day we should have a bit of a competition to see who's fake portfolio is doing better :)

'Buying' a stock
« Reply #4 on: December 25, 2005, 08:31:10 AM »
After you create a portfolio and added stock/s to it, then clicked 'Save', you will see a table stating your current stock status appear.
Notice that above the table, there's a new list of options to choose from: 'Stock Watch', 'Profit & Loss' & 'Transaction History'
'Profit & Loss' & 'Transaction History' will be empty since no transaction has been done yet.
When you want to 'buy' the stock, click on 'Buy' at the far right for the table in 'Stock Watch'

After you clicked on 'Buy', it will prompt you for the amount of units you want to 'buy', 'purchase price' of stock and 'purchase date'. This is good for current stock investors as you can use it for documenting stocks you buy. (As for newbies who is learning to invest in stocks, please don't change the 'purchase price'. Be true to yourself as when you face with the real thing, you can't change the purchase price)

After 'you made your purchase', you will notice that 'Profit & Loss' has a table, stating the price you 'bought'.

Max, for a legal version of the Metastock software, do we just pay a one-time fee for the software or do we need to pay a monthly/yearly subscription as well?

Could use limewire or bitcomet as well.
Anyway, change the layouts as per your preference.
There are many ways to use, or look at the thread under Stocks - with the topic Technical Analysis Made Easy. The thread is based on Metastock charts.
