Be it occasional trader or active trader, basics you should know before venturing deeper into your stock trading journey

The words ‘stock trading’ often call to mind images of rapidly moving price tickers, complicated graphs, and high-flying traders sitting in front of multiple computer screens. While that image is not wrong, it glosses over the simple fact that the act of buying and selling stocks, however infrequently, is still stock trading. This means most investors can do some form of stock trading.

Before you can progress into the various complexities of charting and trading strategies, you must first start with the basics. This infographic will cover those basics—from understanding bid and ask, to spreads, market makers and market takers, and types of market orders.

If you’re interested in stock trading, then our Online Trading Platform can be an option for you. Our Online Trading Platform grants you access to 15 major global stock exchanges at low brokerage fees.
