Trading Day skills
When you buy a stock at a low price and sell it at a high price, you make money. This is called “buy low and sell high,” and it’s one of the most important skills in trading. Sound easy? It can be, but it takes practice and skill to make money every day.
When you buy a stock, wait, and expect to sell that stock later at a higher price, you’re taking a risk. Because there’s no guarantee that the price will go up. In fact the price may go down, which means you’ll lose money. But you know what they say, with big risks come some big rewards.
Sometimes you’ll buy a stock before you sell it. Other times you’ll sell a stock before you buy it. These are different trading strategies. You can use them at different times. Once you learn what to look for, you can use all kinds of strategies to make a profit.
A market is volatile when stock prices suddenly rise or fall. Experienced traders know how to handle this and can make a profit when markets are stable or volatile.
A stable, efficient market is a happy market. In order to create that stability, some professional traders publicly quote the prices at which they’re willing to buy or sell a stock. When those prices are met, a deal is automatically made. It keeps the stocks flowing back and forth from buyers to sellers. That’s why it’s called providing liquidity.
Professional traders have clients. And these clients expect their trade orders to be prioritized over the trader’s own orders. By putting the client’s needs first, the trader is helping the client and providing liquidity within the market.
When you trade, you need to have a budget. Your budget is the amount of money (or capital) you have to trade with. The best traders figure out how to use their capital to make the most money.
There will always be other traders in the market. Sometimes their trading strategies can affect you. When a competitor disrupts your trading, you must quickly recover, or change your strategy if needed.
The more you trade, the more you’ll learn about the market. And the more you learn about the market, the easier it will become to use different trading strategies, and make a profit.
Building a trading position means believing that you can sell a stock for a higher price at a later date. Some traders build positions by buying portfolio stocks (groups of stocks). This can be risky because there’s no guarantee that the price will go up. But a skillful trader can manage this risk and still make money.
Just like in the Trading Day app, real-life trading has rules. And if you don’t follow those rules you can get fined — or go to jail. Every trader must know the rules and act ethically.
Math is very handy in trading. For example, if you buy a stock at one price, and then buy it again at a lower price, your average cost is now lower. Skillful traders can use that average price to their advantage. Plus, you can use math to calculate your profit, which is always fun.
Traders have their own language. And when you unlock a Trader Talk word, you’re learning a real-life trading term.
