Before trading follow this simple tip:
Invest in knowledge
The stock market is a highly volatile market. Incomplete knowledge can result in huge losses, so invest ahead of your knowledge before investing in stocks. Learn everything that you should know before trading, do not learn from trading. Learning from mistakes can be once or twice but not every time. So, invest your time in knowledge before investing your money in stocks.
Trade by facts not by emotions.
Traders behave in the very human way while trading that is they get excited during bull markets, some think they made last year so they will make this year too without studying the market and current situation, they borrow from friend’s neighbors and relatives and end up making losses because proper research was not done. The stock market performs on the news and facts and not on emotions so traders should not be emotional while trading.
How much you can invest
You must know the amount you can trade in. the trading application provides you with the margin facility, where you can trade with 4 or 5 times your money. Every brokerage firm has its own terms. This is called a margin facility for which they charge some extra amount according to companies’ policies.
Once your buy order is executed you must know how much you want to earn from that trade and once the price reaches your target get out of the trade, don’t get greedy to earn more, you may end up making losses. Move out of the stock once you made the day’s profit.
Every trading application provides you with a stop loss facility, where you can restrict your trade i.e. if the market price goes below that level your shares are immediately sold avowing further losses. This feature is ignored by traders and ends up trading saying the stock market is a gamble.
News and trends
Just as news is important to know how the world is going, it is also important to know what is happening in the stock market. traders should stay up to date with news regarding the companies they trade in and stock market indices. With the banner, you can find news about investment companies as well as market trends and other decision-making factors.
To stay in the market, traders need to know the latest developments in the stocks they are ready to trade. Trends can be learned from news and some profitable indicators.
