How does stock trading online work?
Stock trading is the buying and selling of a company's shares. The goal is to make a profit. When you buy shares in a company, you then own a small part of that company. The value of your part will change as the company's share price moves up and down. With our stock trading service, you can't open sell (short) positions on stocks, but you can sell any holdings you have to earn a potential profit.
Most traders use information including company news and announcements, company results (earnings), and technical analysis to choose which stocks to buy and when. Read more about CFD stock trading here.
Once you've bought your stock with FXTM, you can log in anytime to monitor it while keeping an eye on the latest news and announcements. There's no limit on how long you can hold your stock.
