Familiarize Yourself with All the Jargons
Before diving into the game, you should definitely do the most basic step – which is reading and memorizing all the stock jargons. You should acquaint yourself with the terms so you have a general idea of what you are getting yourself into. It is crucial for you to teach yourself first before wading into any type of investment contracts and having substantial knowledge of the basics will help you become a good communicator and translator for your possible clients.

Choose a Brokerage Firm
Choosing your brokerage firm is necessary since you cannot trade without it. The brokerage firm will serve as a bridge, a mediator if you will, between the traders and the corporations. Before anything else, you should be diligently researching about each respectable firm that has complete credentials and has proven their legitimacy. Take the time to really understand the vision of that brokerage firm you will be choosing and if it aligns with your goals and also reflects your ideals. It’s a vital step that you should not overlook considering you are investing hard-earned money.
Know the numbers.
You can fill out a new account application online once you’ve manage to select the best brokerage firm for you. The broker will then dutifully collect necessary information from you such as your current employment status, licenses, assets, financial status and goals. In addition, you will have to undergo the Certification Seminar for Securities Representatives which is provided by the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission), when applying for a registration.

Get Certified
Like any other finance student, you will have to immerse yourself with comprehensive learning material first so that you can hone your skills. Do note that when undergoing the certification program, you should have mastery on every subject related to the stock market such as: valuation techniques and analysis, financial market theories, investment strategies, investment portfolio management, market dynamics, ethics and regulations. There are various review centres for you to enroll in which offers beginner and advanced courses that will aid in your preparation for the licensure exams. Becoming a stock broker here in the Philippines is indeed a commitment and requires outmost dedication to learn and improve oneself especially when the market involved is ever changing.
