Trading stocks has been around for a while – hundreds of years – and in that time, traders have adopted a lot of special approaches.

What is Stocks trading?

For generations, the stock market has been the best way to make your money work for you. Investing in the stock market offers significant opportunities for potential gains, yet it can be intimidating to new investors.

Stocks also known as equities, are a security representing partial ownership of a publicly traded company. So, when you buy stocks in a company, it means you own a part of that company. A share is the unit of stock; the more shares you buy, the more stock you have in a company. Stocks are issued by companies to raise money to grow their business.

There are two main types of stocks, one is called a common stock and the other is a preferred stock. The main difference between the two is that common stocks give shareholders the right to vote on company matters and participate in the growing earnings of the company while preferred stocks don’t. Preferred shares may come with a higher fixed dividend payout.
