ABOUT US

Chosen by the INVESTAGRAMS team for their outstanding performances in the past two INVESTAGRAMS TRADING CUP competitions, OPEN JOURNAL offers a unique style on engaging the markets—one that is often misunderstood but used by some of the best traders around the world.

Subscribers gain private access not only to the intricacies of the trading system but would also gain access to ‘trading support’ to help traders focus their capital on where the uptrending opportunities are NOT just in Philippines but across global markets as well.

What we teach inside is a setup-based system that incorporates directional bias through the Elliott Wave principle. We share and "open" our experiences and studies with the other traders inside -- same techniques that we use in our fund management service w/ our clients. More than teaching the system, Open Journal is also a community of like-minded individuals whose mission is to continuously "evolve" with the markets.

About open journal
Open Journal is a premium trading community on the Investagrams platform that provides private access to the guidance and mentorship under 3x Philippine Stock Market Champion & CMT, Jav Medina and his team at Buhawi Investment Management (B.I.M.)

Jav provides a wealth of insight and experience with more than a decade as a licensed professional in the financial markets; and having had the opportunity to work with and train under some of the best local and international traders & coaches in the investment management industry. His team at Buhawi has generated net profits of well over 9 digits in the markets, while managing close to half a billion across different financial markets; and with a professional track record of outperforming the $PSE:PSEI for almost every year since 2010.

Open Journal essentially offers private access to the same kind of thinking, guidance, strategies, and resources that have generated one of the best trading track records in the industry in the pursuit of maximizing the opportunity present in the Cryptocurrency markets. It's an opening of our journal, providing a private access to the way that we look at the financial markets, to see both the opportunities we're pursuing and why.
Our ethos
Humility
Arrogance and ego come before any kind of fall. We engage markets with a deep sense of humility and always with a “student of the market” mentality.
Service
The purpose of all wealth is love. We are generous with our learnings and insights and strive to uplift everyone in our community.
Discipline to Learn
Markets are essentially a learning game, and the compounding of our learnings will always be more important than the compounding of our earnings.
Responsible Risk-Taking
We embrace markets with a “risk-first” mentality. We are open-minded to new ideas while we faithfully allocate capital based on our time-tested investment process.
Respect
Giving respect serves as a bedrock for everyday dealings. We seek to understand others before being understood ourselves. We believe that any difference in views & convictions should never be bigger than the relationships involved.
Honesty & Transparency
We adopt the belief and best practice that it is through radical truth and transparency that we make way for meaningful work and meaningful relationships.

JAVI MEDINA
Co-Founder and Managing Director
Jav is an Asian Poker Tour Champion turned 3-time Philippine Stock Market champion – including 1st Place Champion in the first ever Philippine Investagrams Trading Cup in 2017. He started his investment career with COL Financial Group in 2010, managing money for high-net worth and institutional clients where he has since built his investment management practice.

Currently, he is the Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer of Buhawi Investment Management (BIM) and one of the founders of Open Journal (OJ); and for the last half decade, has also been an active consultant, speaker and mentor, giving over 200+ public lectures on Classical Technical Analysis, Global Macro trends, Trend Following Systems, Market Cycles, Risk Management and Trading Psychology both locally and internationally.

Jav started OJ in late 2019 while consistently and publicly warning Filipino investors/traders in the community about an impending global market crash that would take the $PSEi down at least -30%. He did this while convincing Filipino traders/investors to move to the Cryptocurrency markets instead where he thought the biggest long-term opportunities were.

Today, he is actively focused on managing a select few clients through BIM, while guiding and mentoring the OJ community to understand and navigate the local and global financial markets space with a focus on the Cryptocurrency market.

Creative Designer
Jessa previously worked as a full-stack developer for a mobile apps, web design, and web development company. She also volunteers for the tech community in Cebu by co-leading events for Google Developer Group (GDG) Cebu and Women Techmakers (WTM) Cebu.

She only started trading last April 2020 after the market crashed due to CoVID-19. She then used her profits from the bounce to subscribe to Open Journal to help shorten her learning curve in trading the markets.

In March 2021, she decided to leave her job to pursue doing more creative work and to expose herself to the world of finance and its early stages of decentralization.

During this time, Open Journal was looking for a marketing intern. As someone who didn’t really have any concrete plans after resigning from her job, she felt like the universe conspired to give her the perfect opportunity to learn and jumpstart her goals, so she applied.

Today, she continues to learn from her OJ mentors and helps Open Journal provide value to the community by helping out in some of Open Journal’s initiatives like managing the accountability groups. She also helps design content like the Open Journal trade process summary that is shared to the community.
