    Basically its the same but some old features are enhanced and the graphics and layout are totally re-arranged. Some add-ons as well specially the extensions which most of the online stockbroker has added…

    Just noticed that, in the trade portfolio, the column for percentage of gain/loss for every stock was removed. For me, I think, it would have been easier to monitor gains/losses in percentage. It would be more helpful in implementing cutloss (for short-term trading stocks) if one knows the gains/loss percentage.Just my opinion…

    Hi nelle, you can actually set that i the My Settings section of the website(i think in the home page tab). Just click both for percentage and amount, click save, and click apply.

    Well it is still in the beta mode I hope there will be more changes and also faster way to transfer funds like FMS :)

    Was checking out the enhance charting but it seems the number that pops is dizzying :)

    I agree, nawala nga ung % gains/loss. Thanks for the info, Kuya Louis, of how to arrange the settings pra mag appear ulit un. ;) U’re dah best!

    I cannot find the EIP function in the new website and my total equity value at CITISECONLINE is different from the one at COLFINANCIAL…because MPI is 4.39/share now, and at the old website, it is so. But in the new website, 4.3499 lang, market value daw. For a simple-minded person like me, this is really confusing. Can you help Mr Delos Angeles?

  12. April 29, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Thanks Sphenodon for asking. As for the diference I guess we have to contact COL Financial itself to point out the difference. It could be rounding error or a data error being pulled by their old and new system. Remember the new COL website is still in Beta mode meaning testing mode it would help COL if we report such bugs or error so that they can check and correct the error. nonetheless I will check the settings section if there is anything we can do about it

    Good Morning Mr. Angeles. I am planning to open an account with Citiseconline. My question is, will I be able to access the same account via COLfinancials? Thank you and more power to you!

    Thanks for asking jm_mba! I guess you can since both sites is the site of COL Financial(formerly Citiseconline) I use the same account info to access my account and since the new site is just a beta to refine what the old lacks. Sooner we will all be using the new site and the old site wont be accessible. You can inquire about it with COL Financial if you have any further inquiries about the new site.

    Again thank you for asking.

    I think when it comes to the online stock trading platform, Philstocks is definitely much better. They keep on improving their service and their trading console. You might want to check them out at http://www.philstocks.ph

    I hope col can develop an app for easier transaction like buy and sell without going to the official website. Everybody is going mobile now and i think it would benifit everyone if col will have an app

      Very true rc. Let’s hope they will make it easier to access and place bids like if the market is still close we can place our bids without going to Offline hours with the ability some details to help us in our buy/sell decisions.

    Good evening Mr.delos Angeles Im jasten Im really interested in investing in col financial but my problem Is acc.that tax identification no.is one requirement….Is it really necessary??because Im still a student and doesnt have any business to run to have tin#?thanks!!

    • November 27, 2014 at 11:44 pm

      Hi Jasten! Wow thank you for being an early investor.

      Yes TIN is required because COL Financial or any of the accredited brokers will need to remit the tax they will deduct on every sale transaction you make. You can apply for TIN due to you paying tax. Since you are not employed yet you can apply under E.O. 98 since you will be transacting with a government agency like BIR itself due to the tax you will pay from your stock investment. Check this BIR link to learn more http://www.bir.gov.ph/index.php/registration-requirements/primary-registration/application-for-tin.html

      Hope this helps
