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. Ready to sell? Login and click to sell instantly. You could then use that cash to place a new trade or return it to your bank account - whatever suits you.

Trading shares means buying share positions based on its price at the time without owning the actual shares. Share dealing, in contrast, is directly buying and owning company shares.

One of the big differences is that CFDs are a leveraged product, while Shares aren't. On other trading platforms: with share dealing, you buy the shares for the full value, while CFDs would allow you to buy a fraction of the trades value and get on the market.

With the right kind of research into the stock market, and knowledge on how to budget and build a balanced portfolio, stock trading can be a highly rewarding way of making a profit. Always make sure to invest responsibly.

There's some good news, to start: it's never been easier to start trading stocks.
