The basic strategy of stock market trading is to buy shares cheaply and sell them when the price goes up. Most of the time newbies will lose money when they see their own stock dropping down and chooses to trade them with negative gains. At times it will be the right thing to do and other times it is just a normal market fluctuation that happens once a while.
If you have the experience, you would then already anticipate the drop and plan accordingly. While there are risks when playing in share trading, it is possible to reduce the risks if you have the experience, resources together with the capability to investigate the business before you decide to buy its stock.
You are able to only really count your earnings after you have sold the share. There are a few steps you can take to maximize profit such as selling half your stock when it is rising rather than selling it if it drops down since it might still increase. Keep in mind you will want to sell at a higher price in comparison to when you bought them in order to make a profit.
You will start to see some sort of pattern if you have played the stock market long enough. Stock prices will invariably fluctuate down and up between two points. If the stock goes above the maximum price, then its time to buy it and if the stock is going down the minimum price, it’s time to sell them. There is a lot of software available in the market that can help you keep an eye on the stock movement.
A different way to trade would be to follow certain fundamentals of share dealing. You need to know a lot of data regarding the stocks that you want to purchase. It does not merely include the profit the corporation makes but also changes in the industry as well as supporting industry, who is the management team and where the firm is situated.

Should you own the actual stock, you may also arrange to sell your shares to a buyer at certain dates. If your stock increases, you do not have to sell it. If the stock goes down, you will have to sell the actual stock at the price agreed and thus safeguarding your gains.
