Recently, the popularity of stocks amongst the public has seen a growth it has not experienced for a long period before. In 2021, investment in stocks is something that is available to anyone and is relatively accessible. People believe that earning with help of shares is something anybody could do, especially if they invest in large corporations. However, others might think that trading shares and buying stocks is difficult. Thus, today we will talk about how you can trade shares online.
First of all, it is worth learning what stocks and shares are in general. Essentially, company shares are a type of securities issued by enterprises, usually classified as public companies. This, in turn, means that those securities can be freely traded on public trading marketplaces. The stocks themselves can be bought online. In the traditional sense, shares of companies are documents certifying the ownership of a share in a company. Shares enable its owner to take part in shareholders' meetings, vote for management decisions, and claim part of the company's property in the event of liquidation. It depends on the type of shares, for example if you maintain Preference shares - you are not maintaining voting rights, but if you hold ordinary shares - you do. The issue of shares allows the company itself to attract additional financial resources in the form of investments. After the shares go to the exchange, the company gets the opportunity to significantly increase its value. This will happen if the number of those who want to buy the company's shares is greater than those who want to sell them.
There are two strategies of investment in stocks: long term strategy and dividend strategy.
The long term strategy helps to maximize profit with minimal risks. A buy and hold investment is a proven strategy that involves buying stocks or other securities and holding them in your portfolio for an extended period.
Dividend, in turn, implies that the goal of the strategy is not to invest in the long term, but simply to receive dividends. This investment strategy involves the timely purchase and subsequent sale of dividend-paying stocks. In particular, this is the purchase of shares just before the date of ex-dividends.
Trading shares online is becoming more and more accessible these days, as you don’t need to use third parties’ services – instead, it can all be done online. The first step for a beginner is to find the right platform for trading. There are other ways to trade shares online, but this is one of the most common ones these days – if you choose the right platform, it will provide you with some degree of security and reliability. One such platform is NAGA – we take care of your account, security, privacy, help you to execute orders to buy and sell stocks, as well as give access to other trading instruments
The next step, of course, is creating your account and depositing some funds. You can do this using your credit card or through other means available depending on the platform, but in general, it doesn’t take too long. Depending on the platform, you might need to pass ID verification and some other checks, after which you can choose which assets you want to invest in and start trading.
Starting from now on, you can start immediately making transactions on the exchange - sell and buy stocks, trade indices, precious metals, currencies, and other financial instruments. But always remember - be cautious and make decisions based on your own opinions and experience.
