Shares Trading Strategies

Shares describe a range of different financial tools, but in their simplest format, they refer to the stocks which are offered by every publicly traded company and which are available for general purchase on the financial markets which we know as the ‘stock markets’.

All companies listed on financial indices will have shares which can be bought or sold by traders.

The trading of Shares revolves around the value of a companies’ stock, which is in turn also influenced by how well a company is perceived to be doing.

Simply put, if a trader believes that a company’s stock will go up in value, they will ‘buy’ that stock. If it does indeed subsequently rise, they will make a profit. However, in the event that the stock ends up dropping in value, if they decide to close out the trade at this point in time, they will incur a loss. The opposite also holds true.

Every stock has its own value, dependent on how the company is currently valued by the markets.

Although stock prices are rarely completely static, significant movements in a stock price are often down to a number of specific factors: Company Earnings, Analyst Ratings, General Industry News.

The trading hours for Shares CFDs are identical to the trading hours of the original exchange that the actual shares are traded on.
