What is Online Share Trading?
Online share trading is simply buying and selling stocks (or shares) in a company over the internet. Because online trading is often cheaper and more transparent than using a traditional stockbroker, it's a popular way for investors to buy and sell shares.
To sum it up, online share trading:
· Is a simple way to buy and sell shares in a company online
· Allows you to monitor your trades with complete transparency
· Can be done on most devices with an internet connection, such as a computer, tablet or smartphone
What are the basics of online share trading?
· Shares: Owning a share, or stock, in a company means you own a very small part of that company.
· Share price: The share price will rise and fall based on supply and demand. In other words, the more people want to buy a share, the more its price will rise. Generally, the price of the share goes up and down based on what people believe about a company’s future prospects and profits.
Other factors such as broader economic conditions, market expectations, the likelihood of dividend payments, and even new laws and regulations can also affect a company’s share price. It's therefore worth keeping an eye on the market so you can make strategic decisions about when to buy or sell shares.
