However, by learning some key concepts, terms and strategies used in marketplace, people can learn the lingo, acquire the skills and develop the instinct needed to effectively buy and sell stocks on the stock market.. There is also a popular book on Amazon – Investing for dummies for people interested in reading a book.
What is the stock market ?
The Stock Market The stock market is an organized system of buying andselling stocks and shares, and a place in which these transactions take place iscalled the stock market. The stock market deals with stocks of listed companies.In short, the stock market aims at the overall stocks sold and bought at stockmarkets. Before investing in the stock market, you need to know how itworks.
The broker or dealer typically earns a commission for stocks bought or sold.the commission varies depending on the broker or dealer, as well as on the volume of stock being bought or sold.
- Make a simple plan to determine your goals and needs
- Decide if stock u buying is long term or short term strategy stock.
- Decide how much you want to make from each stock before hand ( 25 $ 100 $ 0r 1000 $)
- Decide on when u wanna sell before u buy and at what profit margin ( 10% or 50 % profit gain)
- Decide at start how long u hold stock before u sell ( if price not changing eg. 1 week – 3 weeks )
- Decide how much stock loses value before u decide to sell ( 0.20c drop 2 $ drop or 1.50 $ drop )
1. Is the money I invested “extra” money that I can afford to lose or atleast hold on to through the rough times?2. Do I have additional money to invest if another opportunity arises or amI locked into one stock?3. Should I still buy the stock today?
4. Should I consider investing insomething that has less volatile price movements?
However, you can be told that the Dow Jones will be up 10% tomorrow by George Soros and Warren Buffet and still blow your hard-earned cash.
