Stock Trading Market- Making Money in The Market

By Henry Mangult

Are you new to the Stock trading market? Are you just now thinking about opening a trading account or broker account? Or are you just looking to learn a little more about where your 401(k), IRA or mutual funds are being invested? Either way here is a beginner's introduction to the Stock trading market.

Individual companies, firms or conglomerates trade "equity" known as stock on the open market. True day-traders' attempt to project the upward or downward mobility of particular stocks in order to benefit from short-term gains, the term stock traders or day traders typically references somebody making many transactions over a day or week long period. However "Stock traders" are usually professionals who sometimes operate in the Stock trading market on a full or part-time basis allowing themselves to maintain other employment. While "financial advisors" or "financial managers" manage other individuals portfolios in the Stock trading market bringing additional resources to the table and therefore take a cut or "broker fee" based on transactions and possibly based on profitability.

Sometimes individuals who purchase equity on the Stock trading market do so with the intent of holding and carrying a long-term position. This is traditionally done when the research they've done on the companies in which they intend to invest shows that the company has a strong fundamental business position and shows positive upward mobility. In these instances the individual's intent is to hold the stock for months and even years.

So taking a short-term approach to wear you will pull your profits off the table quickly and then roll them in to a new investment differs greatly from holding a long-term position. Either method is capable of making money in the stock trading market however an individual who is not familiar with the stock trading market should seek the advice of a financial manager in order to prevent incurring losses in the stock trading market.

So whether you work on the philosophy of "dating stocks" and not "marrying stocks" or rather hold long-term investments, always remember that bulls make money, bears make money, but pigs go to slaughter. - 31970
