    after mo mag invest nang 5k, magkano na monthly ihuhulog sa kanila?

  3. Paul Dabuco 06/08/2015 at 15:11 - Reply

    Athena, it is not required to do it monthly but the minimum that you can deposit is Php 1,000. If you deposit below P1,000, a service charge applies.

    meron po b rules if gusto mo n bawiin shares mo if di kumikita & pede mo ba encash earnings if ayaw mo ibili pa ng stock? tnk u

    No rules. You can buy or sell shares and you can withdraw your outstanding balance absolutely ANYTIME.

    But you can only withdraw your investment once you sell your shares.

    As an example, I sold my San Miguel (SMC) shares last time and withdrawn the money I earned from it :)
