The team with the lowest group average (% gain) starting from 
tomorrow, (Feb 27, 2015) until the Friday of next week

May the odds be ever on your favor.

Sagasa Order : Trading 101

"Sagasa Orders"

These badass orders are like fireworks when seen in the ticker.

These can be either a sell or a buy order where you buy or sell 
at least 5 flucs from the current price with relatively high volume.

These orders can be very effective in chart drawing.

Here's an example:

I could have waited for a clear breakdown...
But sometimes I just want to play the bad guy...

Recently, I have been getting multiple 'letters' 
of serious yet funny questions like 

"are you a jockey?"
"are you group trading?"

and other similar questions..

so to answer these, No and No.

I'm just a small time trader with a system 
fine tuned for basura plays.

And while I do teach real time trading to my students,
I avoid disclosing my buys/sells for them to learn on their own.

In the markets, there is no such thing as trading buddies or "allies."
Because by the end of the day, whether you like it or not, 
we're all just animals trying to survive.

It's Eat or be eaten.

I am not your friend.

The Hungry Games : Zodiac Edition

The Game where you don't want to lose. 
May the odds be ever in your flavor. 
Good luck Zodiacs. :3

Game Rules and Updates will be finalized and shall 
be posted here before the week ends.

The Hungry Games

The objective of this game is to test the conviction of zodiac players in picking stocks and also to make stock trading more fun!

Main Rules

· Every week you have 1 Million HGM (Hungry Games Money) and you need to pick only ONE

(1) stock to trade per week.

· Gains or losses realized after one week will not be credited to your starting money for the following week. You always start with a fresh 1 Million HGM every week.

· You can choose to avail one of your 3 trading immunities if you do not want to trade and would just like to have a cash position for one week. You can give your trading immunity to

your teammate if you want to and if you think it will help your team win.

Buying Rules

· Your buying price can only be Friday’s closing price of your chosen stock. You cannot buy at intraday prices.

· You can enter your buy order every Saturday to Monday morning 8:00 AM.

· Orders entered on Monday at 8:01 AM onwards will not be accepted and instead one of your 3 trading immunity will be automatically used so you can just stay at a cash position
for that week.

· If you do not have trading immunity anymore and you were not able to execute a buy transaction, you will be fined PHP500.00 for that week. All proceeds collected here will be donated to the school supported by boss ZF and invicta.

Selling Rules

· You can sell your positions between Monday to Friday but only on the closing price. You cannot sell at intraday prices.

· If you are not able to sell, your position will automatically be sold on Friday’s closing price.

Sample Trade:

Stock Pick: UNI
Buy: Feb. 13, 2015 (Friday) at 0.355
Sell: Feb. 18, 2015 (Thursday) at 0.55
%Gain/Loss: +54.93%

Please be accurate in inputting your stock’s closing prices. You will be fined PHP200.00 for each incorrect entry of a stock’s closing price. All proceeds collected here will be donated to the school supported by boss ZF and invicta.

All orders entered will be kept confidential by the Game Master.


Each team member’s ending week trade value will be combined to get the team’s total trade value. The team with the highest total HGM on-hand wins! Teams at second and third place are losers.

Results will be posted in the Zodiac Facebook site and released on weekends.

Rewards and Penalties

The winning team gets PHP 1,200 every week for every win or PHP 300 per member.

Winnings can be accumulated so that the winning team can request for bigger valued items at Zalora/Lazada or just a free dinner at your favorite restaurant.

Second-place finishers need to pay PHP400 every week to the winning team or PHP100 per member. Third-place finishers need to pay PHP800 every week to the winning team or PHP200 per member.

There will also be a “Top Hunter of the Week”, wherein the player with the most HGM-on- hand will get PHP 50 from each player or a total of PHP 550 every week.

Negotiations on how and when the payment is to be made will be left to the parties involved on the provision that all debts must be paid within 3 months. At the beginning of the 4th month, each member should have zero debt in his or her name.

Grand Prize

At the end of 1 year, the team with the most wins will receive a total of PHP 10,000 or PHP 2,500 per player and will be named “Hungry Games World Cup Champion of 2015.” Prize

money will again come from the losing teams.

Grand Penalty

PHP 900 from each member of the team at 2nd place for a total of PHP 3,600 PHP 1,600 from each member of the team at 3rd place for a total of PHP 6,400

The Top Hunter of the year or the player with the most HGM on hand after 1 year will receive a total prize of PHP 2,200 or PHP 200 from each player and will be named the “Hungry Games Top Hunter of 2015”. The next 4 top hunters will also receive PHP 700 each or a total of PHP 2,800 from the bottom 7 players. The top 5 hunters will be called the “Hungry Games Mythical Five of 2015”.

There is no end to the Hungry Games, only death from starvation will set you free. May the odds be ever in your flavor!

The Stock Market As...

They say the stock market is a roller coaster of emotions.

So if I were to summarize the emotions for the week (and the next)
it would probably look like this....

Phase 1 : The Run-up!

"Yeah Baby!" 


Phase 2 : The High



Phase 3 : The Drop.
(Emotion you'll see next week)

"OMG. WHY?!"


To those who hyped this. Salamat.

Market Thoughts : The Daily Dose of Hype.

You know you've matured as a technical trader when you stop taking your daily dose of hype.

Oh those beautiful and colorful things...

And by this, that means you don't have the urge to ask your stock 
buddies their picks, read your guru's posts, the news or any rumor
 related to a stock you are holding.

You might not realize it, but taking a pill of hype 
decreases your self confidence in the markets.

So do yourself a favor and stop acting like a hype junkie.

Thoughts on Bounce Plays

Success is when you are able to help people learn how to ride the bike.
And soon after, they show you BMX stunts.

I picture them having this kind of look when 
they made the successful trade:

Of course, there were those who weren't able to make the trade.

That's okay. Opportunity will always present itself.
Always remember:

No news, No rumors, No loyalties.
It's just the Chart and You!

The ZF Mentoring Program

Recently we have been getting 
a lot of letters like these:

And there are types like this:

I would like to address the issues and FAQs regarding our
Tribe's Mentoring Program, 

1. When is the next batch?

I don't know. We are still training the current batch and we will
 formally end on mid April. After this, we will still think about if
 we will take more people in our tribe or not.

2. Who will be teaching and what?

I, ZF. Kidlat Santelmo, and 'M.' (Only two students have 
graduated ever since I started mentoring). As for the "what" 
we will teach... that will remain a secret.

3. How long is the program?

2-4 Months.

4. How many slots per batch?

Minimum of 3. Max of 12. We do not do seminars and we don't go
 for numbers. We know our limits and we go for quality.

5. How much? <--- (Most Asked)

Every batch has a different condition. But if you really want a number. It's between 50k-500k. 
(I don't get why this became a big issue)

Now before you react and post your whiny comment... read on.

6. Why are we doing this? <--- (Almost never asked)

We believe in "paying it forward." To help others in need as we
 once were. We do not do this for money. 
We already have tons of that. 

And you can't bribe us for us to teach you and 
accept you as part of our tribe. 


Relationships > Money

We as a tribe, would like to set an example to others. 

The fact that you are able to trade and invest in our markets means
 that you have 'extra money.' And this money, be it a 7 or 8 figure
 'coffee' money or a 5 to 6 figure hard earned life savings money
 can mean a lot to people who desperately need it.

We do not claim to be gurus or some market geniuses.
We just have a heart for people.

Now if you're wondering why I say we aren't doing it for money
 and yet ask for a big fee... There is deeper truth to this... But to
 enlighten everyone (especially all ya haters out there) Here's the
 condition for batch 5 : 

And yes you heard that right. Applicants have already been
 selected, hand picked, or invited for Batch 5.

And once Zodiac (Current Batch 4) finishes, 
I expect some of them to handle future batches as well.
We will just post announcements via the ZF FB Page.

You see, ZF is more than just a work of fiction. 

It's a Cause.
