Trading / A New Trader’s Guide

January 15, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

If you are new to the world of stock market trading, there are a few things that you should become familiar with and make a part of your general knowledge. The stock market does not care what line of work you are in nor does it know. The stock market is a financial game played by organizations who are willing to finance new companies, ventures, entrepreneurs with funds that they do not need to exist. In other words, if you are new to the world of trading in the stock market, the first lesson is to trade using funds that you do not need to pay your bills with or to continue to maintain your current standard of living.

The second lesson is to contact a brokerage house in your local town and set up an account with one of their brokers. He will be representing his interests as well as yours since he is paid from commissions that he will make when trading for you. He is also paid by his brokerage house who pays him a salary much like a waitress is paid a salary. As a new trader, you should seriously look into the human component of the local brokerage house that you have chosen in terms of familiarity. If you know any of the people there, your contact with them might make your trading common knowledge, if they don’t like you or can gain by trading in your information.

Choosing a broker to set up an investment account is important since you will need one if you want to trade in the stock market. You may decide to choose your own stocks but you will need an account to execute your trades.
