Stock Trading: How to Get Started and Make More Money

With the advent of online trading, anyone can register for an account with an online brokerage and buy and sell stocks within minutes. 

While other investments like real estate require you to put forth a down-payment and have an excellent credit score to obtain a mortgage, you don’t have to worry about any of this for stock trading. 

Stock trading is the practice of buying and selling stocks to capitalize on short-term or long-term market events for a profit. 

A company will issue shares of their company on the stock market, and these shares allow you to invest in their company – almost like crowdfunding. 

Two traditional stock trading strategies are value investing and technical analysis trading. 

Day traders typically like to perform technical analysis trading. They use charts and historical data to look at a stock’s price-volume action and trade based on market activity.
