Understanding the Basics
Think of stocks as a part of the company you now own. Although, you won’t necessarily get a right to majorly influence the company’s decision-making process (unless you own a majority of shares), you can enjoy increasing returns provided the company is doing well. Although owning stocks involves more risk than some other types of investment (e.g. bonds), it is rewarded by the market with higher returns.
There are three main strategies to stock investing:
Intraday trading – traders use price fluctuations to buy and sell the same stock within one day.
Active/swing trading – a trader uses short-term events and times the market to get profit in the next week or a couple of weeks.
Passive investing – traders use fundamental analysis to determine the strength of the business they want to invest in, and then buy and hold shares for years and even decades.
