How does stock trading work?
Stock trading is the buying and selling of a companys shares with an aim to make a profit. When you buy shares in a company you own a small part of that company, and the value of your investment will change as the companys share price moves up and down.
Investors use information including company news and announcements, company results (earnings), and technical analysis to make decisions about which stocks to buy and when.
Once youve bought your investment you can log in anytime to monitor it and check the latest news and announcements. Theres no limit on how long you can hold your investment, and when youre ready to sell simply login and click to sell instantly. You could then use that cash to make a new investment or return it to your bank account
