New To Trading Uk Shares
Guys & Girls -
I've only ever traded bonds / currencies however i want to move into the uk shares market. The big mistake i made while learning the ropes on the bonds was i started off traing the bund.
I want to maybe invest £500 and see what happens. Is trading shares like bonds - i.e. you constantly keep an eye on your positions? What sort of industries sectors should i be looking at / researching? Also i guess you can sell shares and buy them back at a cheaper price - like with bonds? right?
judging by what you trade,id say you like to be active in the market,so look for hot sectors,outperforming shares on a pullback,and take profits 10% above last high,its done me no harm.
Arrrh thanx for the reply. I've started to do a few paper trades!
I was just wondering if anyone could clear sumthing up for me. In the bond market you are able to sell the bonds and then buy them back at a lower price - hence making money. Can you do this with the stock market? i.e. sell shares in a company then buy them back at a later date (hopefully) at a lower rate?
PeterPG - i think i get you, however i havent get opening up a trading account and was just wondering do most companies offer CFD trading or is it a specific thing?
many thanx again
Lots of companies do, I would not call them specialist. IGMarkets, GNITouch, Citywire, H-L are a few. I have only traded CFDs on demo, so unfortunately I cannot recommend a good broker, perhaps some of the others can.
I'll concede it is quite possible to have both ...........and many people have managed to walk that line but ... I would consider the choice very carefully.... cos many get the mix wrong .....I was one of them :o
I like things which have a simple/solid business models which ensures the price bias is to the upside ... ideally I wait for a hiccup to get in then ride the "inevitable (?)" wave skywards... Strong yields are a big bonus too........
I liked BT, Vodafone ........ but they have matured and the uptrend is now established.
Tesco - is going to become the stock that everyone wished they got into ....maybe.
Great company and price is coming down nicely (in hiccup phase).... future plans for world domination are still intact!
Mining Sector is something you might want to consider as an active trader - the vol is amazing ..........
That's all for now folks!
High frequency trading only benefits one market participant - stock brokers. Identifying a handful of profitable listed businesses and holding for the medium term will produce better results. This is what I teach my students.
