Stocks are shares in public companies and have been traded on European exchanges for hundreds of years. The trade is now global and most developed countries have stock exchanges. Stocks rise and fall in value according to the perceived performance and worth of the issuing company. Investors seek to buy stocks cheaply and sell them at a profit. Stock traders will often tolerate temporary drops in the value of their stocks in the expectation that the price will recover. Many investors recommend the long term retention of particular stocks (usually of stable multi-national corporations) as part of a diversified portfolio.
The Basic Principles of Stocks Trading
Stocks trading is like any other form of transaction. The goal is to buy stocks at a low price and sell them at a high price.
You buy 10 Apple stocks at $141.83 per share. After one week you sell the stocks and earn $31.4 in pure profit.
How is that possible?
Two days after you bought your Apple stocks, the company launched its new iPhone. The new device seems much more advanced than the new Samsung mobile device, and investors started buying Apple stocks.
The demand for the stock became high, thus boosting its market price. The stock price has risen from $141.83 to $144.97. You bought 10 stocks and paid $1,418.3.
You sold the 10 stocks and got $1,449.7.
You earned $31.4.
