JOIN THE POEMS MOBILE 3 COMMUNITY! November 11, 2022
There is a saying that the people we surround ourselves with have the biggest influence on our behaviour, attitudes, and results. By the same token, avid traders know that a support system of mentors, teachers, or family and friends who are well versed in investing is advantageous as opposed to navigating the trading world alone.
To help both new and experienced investors on their wealth journey, PhillipCapital created a community function on its latest POEMS Mobile 3 App (P3) launched in early 2022. P3 Community enables its users to exchange trading ideas and learn from the wisdom and trading experience of the members, very much like how a village helps each other in times of need.
In this digital age, mobile phones have become ubiquitous and so much a part of our lives that many functions such as banking and trading can be executed on the move.
We’ve listened to what P3 users want for a better trading experience, solved their pain points, expanded and fully utilised our backend systems, and assigned dedicated teams to specifically cater to the needs of our tech-savvy clients.
P3 bundles the needs of today’s investors with connectivity and accessibility. More importantly, P3 aims to bridge the gap between the different generations of traders.
Now, let’s explore the benefits of joining the P3 community.
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”. That is what Helen Keller; an American author and political activist said1. One of the best ways to learn and grow is by connecting with like-minded individuals and working towards a common goal.
We all want mega returns on our investments but have we done our due diligence? Are we certain that our investment strategies are sound or are we just blindly following our gut feel?
In decision making, there are so many things to consider and more often than not, our emotions come into play, leaving us in a state of confusion. So, whether you are new to trading or have some experience in the field, it is actually beneficial to hear from other traders before you make any decisions.
P3 Community allows users to share trading ideas, opinions on counters and other products, tools, and personal experiences, basically useful information that helps users to stay ahead of the game.
One of the downsides of social spaces is user anonymity2. We won’t know the identity of the person who is giving us tips or releasing “hot information” on social spaces. In the case of trading, this becomes an even greater concern. How certain are you that the veteran “professional trader” on the other end of the phone is not actually just someone who went through a free trading course online and is now a self-proclaimed trading genius? Worse yet, what if that person is a scammer trying to get you to buy over-inflated stocks? It seems like an impossible task to filter out all the bad actors out there, but P3 has taken steps to ensure that the platform is a safe and trustworthy environment.
Compared to the online community features of other brokerage firms, PhillipCapital ensures that users have access to the company’s resources that comprise licensed dealers, research analysts and business unit professionals who post daily content onto the platform and encourage discussions and queries from the public.
The P3 community feature embraces the different characteristics of all traders with the main goal of ensuring that legitimate and accurate content is shared for the benefit of the collective whole. It does not matter if you are an expressive individual with lots of opinions to share or if you are shy and prefer to observe from the side lines.
On P3, users can easily search for counters, topic discussions and other users via the global search bar. Need some suggestions to ride the upward trend of electric vehicles? Simply key in some keywords and a consolidated list of posts and news articles will appear.
Deeper market analysis
Deciding if you should trade a certain counter or other instruments can be a gruelling process. We tend to be biased in our decisions and might miss the underlying gaps in our strategies and approach. Having someone to oversee or comment on our trades can be an invaluable asset. When others provide some objectivity, we might then have a different perspective or it will solidify our personal assessment3.
If you are focused on the fundamentals of the market, obtain information from our research team or ask them about specific counters.
For traders who are focused on technical analysis for their trades, observe daily postings with live charts by our analysts and ask them about your preferred counter.
The P3 community also allows users to share their trade ideas with other community members, allowing you to receive honest and essential analyses of your strategies before you follow through with your investment decisions. Over time, you will build greater self-confidence to help you execute your next trade.
For traders who choose to share their trade ideas or enquires about certain counters and other instruments on P3, their queries and sharing are available for public viewing. This method of learning is encouraged as we will all benefit from a community of better informed investors.
Do also remember that you are able to use an alias for your username and maintain online anonymity.
On P3, the main draw of the Community tab is the public Community groups where PhillipCapital group admins comprising research analysts, business unit professionals and dealers will actively monitor their respective community groups, encourage engagement from all users, and moderate misleading or inappropriate content to ensure that it is a safe and trustworthy online space.
With that, let’s hear from the group admins and understand what each P3 Community group is about.
US Earnings Calendar: The US Earnings Calendar group is a great place to keep yourself updated with the latest earnings announcements of US companies, as well as other macro data announcements. Join the group for discussions with our US research analysts as they share some of their early thoughts on earnings expectations, dive through actual results, and touch on other important news that may move the markets.
Growth Stock Picks: The Growth Stock Picks group seeks to attract investors who are interested in seeking out growth stocks and growth leaders. Using our proprietary growth research methodology which incorporates the Rule of 40, we are able to shortlist growth leaders with the propensity to outperform the broader market over time.

The Community tab in P3 boasts a multitude of resources that help to guide novice traders in making their first trade and get familiarised with trading, as well as enabling experienced investors to become more proficient. Another way to get educated on-the-go would be to check out the Ideas category and the Education category under the Community tab.
In the Education category, seamlessly sign up for free seminars/webinars and join the sessions via your mobile phone. Also, under ‘Articles’, you will find pieces written by our PhillipCapital staff to better equip readers with investing knowledge, trading ideas and fruitful strategies. These articles are updated regularly so there is always something to look forward to.
Lastly, have a look into the ‘Guides’ sub-category which serves as an essential tool for all investors. The guides are listed according to the purpose of each written piece: guides in the Beginners category for novice traders; guides in the Investors category for experienced traders; step-by-step tutorials to navigate around P3 in the Platforms category; financial instruments and products explained in the Products category, and effective investment strategies listed in the Strategies category.
If that is not enough, take a look at the Ideas category.
In the Ideas category, check out the Daily Morning Note where Roshan Gidwani, our Media Host & Presenter from Pytch Media, covers the latest news on the financial markets and provides insights into market trends. Apart from that, P3 also curates the most traded stocks that are related to your portfolio through the use of AI.
Additionally, look at the ‘Analyst Call’ section which lists featured stocks that have been studied by PhillipCapital’s in-house research analysts who provide technical analysis of the stock’s performance, objective comments and divulge the optimum target price for the featured stock. Furthermore, observe the Thematic Portfolio which covers a range of topics such as Rule of 40, Fintech, China market, etc. and a list of stocks to watch, with their P/E ratio and market capitalisation.
Stock trading relies on the circulation of news4. To succeed as a trader, one must depend on good and accurate data, constant monitoring of the trading environment, and have reliable communication with peers. Our P3 Community is designed with this in mind.
What sets P3 apart from other platforms is that we understand the value of user feedback. As the main drivers of the App, users know what benefits them and the tools or functions they need in order to have the best trading experience. We strongly encourage feedback and have teams constantly reviewing and working on user suggestions.
While relying on social trading communities can have a downside, the P3 Community aims to eliminate the concern of an untrustworthy online space and give confidence to those that want to embark on their trading journeys and thrive. Use the P3 Community resources for free. Download the POEMS Mobile 3 App now and enjoy the experience.
