On Eagles Investors, we try to explain Stocks and trading online in a simplified manner. One needs to understand that, while most traders favour currencies in their trading activity, many others prefer to trade stocks for profit. It's important to emphasize that the choice of assets remains specific to the personality of each. If trading euro/dollar will make you happy, another trader will earn millions with the Netflix or Apple shares.

    Stocks, another way to trade online

    stocks Every single Trader has his preferences. Stock trading has many nuances compare to currencies. And it's imperative to know before embarking on a trading platform. Get knowledge of the markets and the companies will help you to get better. For example, understand the interdependence between the share's price and the economic situation and perspectives of a company.

    The Golden rules to know when trading Stocks

    The price of a share will depend primarily on investor confidence in the company. This will help him to decide to buy or sell the stock in question. And here are the main conditions that determine investor confidence in an action:
    • The economic state of the business sector of the company (eg KLM shares fell in 2008 due to the global crisis in the civil aviation sector)
    • Attractiveness and opportunities for growth in value (eg startups who see the price of their shares "multiplied")
    • The financial balance sheet of the company
    In other words, even though technical analysis plays a fairly important role in stocks trading, especially in the short term. Keeping in mind that fundamental analysis is the key element for trading stocks. Let's take the example of the huge fall of the Volkswagen Stock. It was some time ago. If you remember, Volkswagen was "at the heart" of an environmental scandal. The company was criticized for rigging the CO2 meters. If this scandal did not benefit the sales of the company, the Volkswagen stocks also suffered a lot. In other words, after this scandal, Volkswagen's shareholders no longer trusted the company and sold its stocks in droves. Result: because of a "bad business scenario" the stocks of Volkswagen have lost more than 50% of its value, from $ 250 the title to less than $ 100 / share. On the other hand, those who knew how to trade this action surely made nice profits!

    Trading stocks, following the trend

    stocks While on currencies, the trends are often short-term and rather irregular, the stocks often have long tendencies that sometimes last for years. This is primarily due to a psychological phenomenon. If the currencies can be"shaken" by the instability of the economic measures taken by a country. Although the Stocks price can perfectly increase independently. Indeed, as long as "everything is fine" on the company site itself. Let's take Stocks example with Apple. As long as the iPhone is popular and well sold, the price of the shares will inevitably increase. In other words, the trend is primarily a psychological phenomenon: if investors believe in a company, the Stocks will climb up.

    To successfully trade a stock

    You must put yourself at the place of a shareholder. In other words, always ask yourself the following questions:
    • Does this company have potential?
    • Is the industrial activity concerned currently not competing or in crisis or in decline?
    • Finally, do I have to "believe" and do I get enough knowledge in this Company?
    If we look at the curve of the Apple stocks, we can perfectly see the tendency of the company growth when a new product shows up and the sales go up. It's a "pretty good scenario" for Apple's executives and investors who are seeing the price of their shares growing steadily.
