How to trade stocks?

Technically, you can use all the techniques you trade currencies and commodities with, in stocks. If you forecast the price of a stock has the potential to rise, open a buy order. On the flip side, if you forecast the price of a stock is likely to fall for some reason, open a sell order.

Tips for trading stocks

Diversify

The idea behind diversification is not to put all the eggs in one basket – to collect a set of various stocks that will react differently during the same economic events. Why? To minimize the risks of unexpected price movements of one asset. How?

  1. Invest in different sectors.
  2. Buy undervalued stocks with higher potential growth and decades-proven titans like Amazon or Google.
  3. Vary companies’ size and type.

Monitor news

Be updated not only with the news of companies, which stocks you have, but also with the key economic events. The overall market sentiment tends to have a huge impact on all stocks regardless of their current financial state.  

Watch our daily trading plans to stay informed.

Trade on earnings reports

Earnings seasons offer unique opportunities for traders. This is the time when the largest American companies publish their earnings reports for the previous quarter. The price can jump or fall by tens of percent after these releases, so traders can profit during a very short period of time.

  • If the financial report (quarterly or annual) shows that the company increased profit or sales, investors get interested in it. Demand for the company’s stocks rises and their price goes up.
  • If the company announces that its profit has declined, its stocks fall on the news.

The good news for FBS traders is that they can trade stocks making both buy and sell trades. Thus, traders have a chance to profit in case of either outcome!
