CHAPTER ONE

Stock Market

A stock market, to say the least, is a place for trading stocks. It also functions as a sign of the financial cycle. When the economy is performing well, the prices of commodities tend to increase in the market, typically. When the economy is down, the costs of stocks also decrease; this can be true even for a very high share.
It is also worth noting that the costs of stocks mainly depend on the efficiency of a business. When a company is succeeding, the price of its stocks will also tend to increase; the opposite would take place if the business is not earning well. There are odd cases where speculators are buying stock that is not performing well at all, which will result in a high stock cost even for a lousy business, but that is another story for another time. Now, the question is: Why using stocks? The reason is that it assists businesses to raise funds to finance their tasks, whether for the expansion of the company, or for their day-to-day activities, or just to please their stakeholders. Money, after all, is the brain behind every investment.
Stock
A stock, also known to as a share, represents ownership of a business. When you purchase stocks from a company, you get to work out ownership rights of the company, for instance, a claim on the company's properties and revenues, and ballot rights.
Remember that there are different kinds of stocks. When you see investors talking about the stock market, they usually refer to a typical stock.
Stock Market Index
You might hear them talk about how the market increases or falls one day when individuals talk about stocks. The way to view this is to know the stock market index or indices.
There are many stocks present in the stock exchange. Similar stocks are grouped to form an index.
Having an index is an excellent way to sort the various kinds of stocks in the market. After all, the stock exchange is composed of several stocks. It will be confused if you fail to sort similar stocks in the same place. It is also a thing of reference for contrast. You can compare the tendency of the index worth with
the pattern of the cost of specific stocks that fit into that same index. You can as well compare one index with another and see which industry might be a rewarding investment.
Considering that there are many stocks in the market, and the index can sort all of them out in an orderly manner, an index acts as a good representation of the whole market. If you look at the index of the IT industry, then you will know the average performance of the stocks in the IT market. This applies to other markets. There are different ways to make contrasts, depending on how the shares are arranged in an index.
How the stocks are organized together identifies the type of category of the index. For instance, in a world stock market index, such as in the S&P Global 100, you will discover stocks that are found worldwide. These are stocks from different countries in the world, such as Asia and Europe. There is also what is known as the national index.
As the name suggests, this type of index considers the performance of the stock market in a particular country. You can likewise discover a more specific index that reveals the habits of
the stock market on a local level. When analyzing the stock market, it is advisable to study various indexes so that you can have a much better understanding of what is truly going on in the stock market.
Long-Term versus Short-Term Stock
You can choose how long you want to purchase the stock market. Many traders invest just in one day. Therefore they are known as day traders, but it is also typical to discover people who purchase stocks for more than five years. This depends on your preference, along with how you want to approach the stock market. When to categorize an investment as a short- term or long term, there is no quick and challenging guideline for that.
Some financial investments start as a short term but then grow into a long time while doing so. For beginners, the majority of people specify a short-term investment as any investment that lasts for a year. For this reason, all other investments that lasted for more than one year are considered as a long-lasting investment. Again, such meaning is approximately you.
It is worth noting that the stock exchange, in general, does not fluctuate too quickly. You can not anticipate a significant return on a short-term investment as much as you can get from a lucrative
long-term
investment.
Numerous
short-term
investments only last for a month or some months.
The problem with long-lasting investing is that it is more difficult to predict how the market will respond during your investment. Even though the market is doing terrible now, it can do well after a year. Of course, the difference can take place.
The purpose of the investment also matters. If you desire to save for retirement, then a long-term investment is the best.
It is to be noted that the market takes some time to respond.
This is among the issues why day trading might not be the right choice considering that the market might take more than 24
hours before it reacts to your prediction. Another separating factor is the technique that you change. For short-term savings, technical analysis would be valuable to you; however, for a long-term investment, the fundamental analysis would be the much better option.
Stock Investing versus Trading
It is rather safe to state that there is no difference between investing in and trading stocks. A view drawn from a fundamental
perspective,
they
are
interchangeable.
Nevertheless, for the word Nazis out there, investing and trading stocks might have some distinctions.
You can trade many stocks on a single day. On the other hand, investing means a less active approach where you purchase particular shares and hold on to them for a more extended period so that you can sell them later for a profit.
Remember that this book uses both words synonymously with no reference to any practical implication. After all, before you can buy anything, you first need to have money to purchase your goods. And, when you buy stocks, you also need to sell and trade them afterward for you to earn an income. Short-term investing likewise consists of the habits of day traders who trade stocks within a single day.
Is it for you?
Anybody can invest in stocks; this type of investment is not for everybody. You have to earn it if making revenue is your
intention (which should always be). Real expert financiers spend hours of research and study regularly. Yes, you can earn money in the stock market by just relying on mere luck without any investigation. But, you cannot expect to make a continuous profit by merely relying on mere luck or guesswork.
To make the stock market a rewarding place for you and your company, you require to devote severe time and effort into discovering the craft of investing in stocks. This indicates that you need to be ready to spend hours of research study and be sure you are following the stock market on a routine basis.
Fundamentals Of The Stock Market
Owners of business have been raising capital through the sale of equity interests for many years. But the auction of equity interests via a public market dates back more detailed to four-hundred years.
In the early 1600s, a Dutch shipping business sold shares of itself to increase the capital it required to broaden business operations. Other companies began offering shares of themselves for sale, and innovative business owners started trading commodities, stocks, and other monetary instruments in
personal markets. A stock market opened in Amsterdam in 1611
in response to the increase in the trading of products and financial securities. Over the next couple of centuries, other markets opened in Europe only.
In the year 1792, brokers assemble under a buttonwood tree in Wall Street to formulate rules for buying and selling stocks and bonds-- the precursor to the New York Stock Exchange. The following bullet points will tell you enough about the most crucial exchanges, so everyone will not assume you're checking out Wall Street for the first time.
 -American Stock Exchange (AMEX)-- For some years, the smallest of the three primary U.S. stock markets. The American Stock Exchange, frequently called Amex, offered itself to NYSE Euronext in 2008. While the mom's and dad's business changed Amex's name to NYSE
MKT, the old name has remained. This exchange centers on small-cap stocks, exchange-traded funds, and derivatives.
 -Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE)-- The world's largest market for choices on stocks, indexes, and interest rates.
 -Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME)-- The country's largest futures exchange, and the second most prominent worldwide.
 -Nasdaq Stock Market (NASDAQ)-- Commonly called just the Nasdaq; this market is a subsidiary of Nasdaq OMX Group, which operates 24 markets on six continents.
 -New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)-- The earliest, and some state still the most prominent, stock exchange in the United States. The NYSE is a subsidiary of NYSE
Euronext, an international conglomerate that controls those markets that sell more than 8,000 equities and account for nearly 40% of the world's stock trading.
Most big companies and many little ones trade on exchanges to make it easier for investors to buy their shares. Exchangers need the business to satisfy specific criteria, such as the variety of shares readily available, market cap, share price, and financial rules, before they will note the stock for trading. However, thousands of companies do not list their stocks on exchanges either because they can't satisfy the listing requirements or merely choose not to pay the exchanges' charges. Those stocks
trade via networks of securities dealerships who work out deals among themselves. Such stocks are said to be OTC or buy on-the-counter.
As OTC stocks tend to be small and less accessible than those that trade on exchanges, they have obtained a reputation for threat. Naturally, lots of OTC stocks make suitable investments and lots of big foreign business trade non-prescription. Novices, nevertheless, might want to steer clear of OTC stocks, particularly cent stocks-- stocks that trade at meager rates.
Both exchanges and OTC markets welcome foreign companies.
Companies situated outside the United States can sign up American depositary receipts (ADRs) or other customized securities that sell their stocks on U.S. exchanges. Various U.S.
companies take advantage of comparable systems to trade on markets in Canada, Europe, or Asia. Not before having financiers delighted in such flexibility to buy and sell securities.
What You Should Know
Once you start investing or even looking into investments, you'll likely encounter different terms specialists in the field anticipate you to know. If you read about the Wall Street Journal or enjoy CNBC, reporters will frequently toss around expressions like
"bull market" and "penny stocks" without specifying them. If you don’t know what you encounter in the financial media or something your broker tells you, ask for an explanation or check the term above. Don’t be ashamed of your lack of knowledge.
Ignorance can be dangerous to your success, and smart investors won’t buy anything or fill out a form, answer a personal question, or make a monetary pledge until they know the consequences of their actions.
The exchange names provided above are a good start when it comes to learning the vocabulary of investment.
