How to buy and sell stocks?

Online stock trading can be a bit scary for beginners. By reading this article, I would like to answer some of the questions you may have about stock trading online.

Tell your broker whether you want to go for a long time (your price goes up) or go far (fall in price) and you need to choose the appropriate action. Use to buy (when you want to go long) and sell (to close your long position in the stock). If you think the stock price is falling, you use short (sell your broker stock) and buy coverage (when you buy your broker stock to close this post).

In addition to the type of transaction you have configured, you need to specify the stock symbol and the number of shares you want to trade. Now your broker will want to know the deal you want. It all depends on the best price of your stock. Here are some advanced moves, but for our purposes, I will limit myself to three basic types of orders: market, limit and stop.
