What is stock trading?

Trading stocks online

The stock market is a place where stocks and bonds are traded i.e. bought and sold and is usually the first thing that comes to mind for investing. The goal is to buy the stock, hold it for a time, and then sell it for more than you paid for it.

Stock trading, once the sole domain of Wall Street, has become easily and affordable to all in recent years thanks to online brokerages who have made it possible for traders to execute buy and sell orders themselves in a fraction of a second using computerized trading services
