Buying and Selling Stocks

The thought of buying and selling stocks can seem daunting for a beginner but it is quite simple and will grow on you quite quickly once you have some practice. One essential thing to know is that you must go through a broker to buy and sell stocks, only a licensed broker can deal directly with the stock market.

Engaging a Broker

Aside from making the purchases, a broker can also advise you on your purchases. However, you should not depend on them for market knowledge, you must do your own research to succeed in the market.
