the charts that you see are the prices of a particular stock, or the levels of the index, and can be shown on a daily, weekly, monthly, etc. basis.
no, not all registered companies in the philippines can be seen in the pse list, only "publicly-listed" companies. when a company goes public, it means that it issues shares to the public (us common people), for their money. this is normally done to raise capital. so when you buy shares of a company, it means that you partly own it.
MBA or masteral in economics? hmm ... the only way you can really learn about trading is to get right into it. read books on it, too. i don't think you need a master's degree for that. i know a lot of mba people who still don't know anything about how the stock market works.
yup, do check out pse.org.ph. kung medyo malabo pa rin, post ka uli. spyfrat will reply.
