    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.

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    As an example, I sold my San Miguel (SMC) shares last time and withdrawn the money I earned from it :)
