In the stock market trading can be profitable or unprofitable. Professional traders can make hundreds of dollars a year, depending on the trader's competence and the trading system used. You can also be one of the lucky traders. All you need to do is know how. 

1. How to trade stocks

*Get a broker; The best way to trade your stock is by paying someone to trade it. There are a lot of brokers out there so finding one would not be difficult. You should be able to find someone with experience that can trade and give you good and reliable trading advice.

 *Find a stock-breaking website; For those who are willing and ready to trade by themselves, several websites deal with online trading. Acting as your broker will give you a greater amount of control, and you will be able to save yourself a little money. These are services offered by some of these companies (Fidelity and TD Ameritrade)Some offer extra advice, tutorials, debit cards, mortgage loans, and other benefits. Weigh the benefits of each service and decide what is best for you. 

*Make use of the market order; You can buy and sell stocks with a market order when you trade stocks. Which means it will be traded at a very good price at that moment. Always remember, it takes a while for sails to go through, and if the market changes fast you may get a very different price than the one you originally saw. 

* Stop-loss orders This is similar to a market order-loss order, this is similar a market order except that the stock will be sold when it reaches a particular price. This is often used to avoid a loss in a falling market. 

*Use trailing stops; Trailing stops can be used to set a higher or smaller limit at which a stock could be bought or sold. Rather than a set of prices. it is a price that is determined as a percentage of the actual price. This is a very useful tool which can protect you from huge market swings. 

*Limit orders; Placing limit orders is another option for you. Limit orders create a particular price window out of which your stock will be bought or sold. This can help you get good prices. A special commission is often giving on this type of order. .Stop limit orders are orders which executes when a specified stopping price is reached. This provides even more control but, as with limit orders, you take the chance that your stock may not sell. 

*Your money should be stored between trades; Brokerage firms offer accounts that can help store your money between trades and pay you a small amount of interest in the meantime. This is very useful and should be factored into your plans if you are using an online service. 


2.Trading stocks effectively

 *Keep enough money in your account; Save a particular amount of money required to start and maintain an account. For example, E*trade requires just $500 to open an account. Federal regulations require that you have at least half of the cost of the stock you’re purchasing in your account and that your equity percentage is no less than a quarter of your total investments. 

*Be sure you are looking at a current quote; Remember that the market changes quickly, and the quote you’re looking at may not be up-to-the-minute. Find a service that allows you to look at real-time prices so that you can get the best deal possible. 

*Read stock tables and quotes; Stock tables are a great way to evaluate stocks, but they can be difficult to read. You will have to learn how to interpret them and which numbers are the most important, so you can set your priorities and make great decisions. 

*Know when to buy and sell; The best thing for you is to buy when stocks are at a low price and sell them at a high price later. This is great in theory, but it's difficult to put into practice. Because you cannot determine the future. So instead, look for stocks with great momentum. The idea, of course, is to try to buy at the beginning of an upswing and sell before a big decline. 

*Acquire a good ask price, and make a good bid price; if you have unreasonable expectations, you will have a very hard time buying and selling your stocks. Ask only what is reasonable to ask and do not seek anything well above or below market value.

* Do not put all focus on a stock price; think about the entire company. View the profits and performance. A stock might be expensive, but if the company continues to make bigger and bigger profits, the stock might be cheap. 

*Start with “blue chip” stocks;
These have to do with good stock companies such as IBM, Johnson and Johnson, and Procter and Gamble. Blue chips are stocks from companies that have a very good performance record, and their stocks are known to sell well. 

*Avoid fraud;
A lot of people on the internet are ready to sell you bad stocks, so be smart and use your judgment if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Make safe bets, rather than getting yourself into a trick scheme.

*Do not trust movies;
You may have seen movies showing stock traders rising to lavish riches with a little determination and smarts. The problem is that investing also requires a certain amount of luck. Do not get caught in the romanticism of fiction by believing the first start-up company you invest in will be the next Microsoft. Make good decisions and take safe options if you want to succeed in the long run.
