You probably hear it all the time. You hear it from your friends, you hear it from brokers, and you probably heard it being discussed on TV. What is stock trading and why are so many people interested in it? Stock trading is one of the most popular and the best money making business in the world.
In the financial market, the word trading means buying and selling. In stock trading, you buy a specific stock at a low price hoping you can sell it at a higher price. The value and the movement of the stock price is what it’s all about. You may have an idea what’s it like in the market floor. You probably saw it on TV or in the movies on how people trade stocks. You probably saw them shouting, talking on the phone while looking at the trading monitors, gesturing one another and entering data into terminals in a single trading day.
