Stock Trading

What is stock trading?

Stock trading is the act of buying and selling shares of a public company’s stock in the open market.

Investors can profit from stock trading by purchasing stocks at a low price and selling them later at a higher price. There are a variety of different strategies for stock trading. Some investors may purchase stocks in hopes they increase in price over the long term. Others may buy and sell stocks throughout the day to capture short-term growth (day trading).
