What is Shares Trading?

When a company is divided it’s split into shares. People with shares of a company are called stakeholder or shareholders, and are entitled to a portion of the company’s assets and earnings. This portion is proportional to the number of shares owned and are traded on stock markets.

Companies, Investors and Brokers

Stocks are issued when companies go public, they do this to raise money to invest in their business and grow. Investors buy stocks with the goal of making money or to diversify their portfolio. The prices of stocks fluctuate, which means that the value of the company either increase and decrease.

Trading shares involve the selling and buying of shares through a stock exchange or OTC, in return for a commission or fee. Investors usually trade stocks or shares through a broker who execute trades on their behalf.

Stock Markets

Shares are traded on the exchange. They are marketplaces for trading stocks, that tracks the supply and demand of every company, which a share’s price is derived from.

Supply, Demand and Share prices

Supply and demand are the key factors that influence the price of a share.

Supply refers to the availability of the particular share’s and demand the request for that same share. The price of a share increases by low supply and high demand, while high supply and low demand reduce it.

If the reports or forecast of a company looks good, and the forecast of it’s sector looks promising, the demand of the share goes up making the price for that particular stock increase. If the reports or forecast for the company or the sector looks bad, the opposite happens. The demand decreases and so does the price accordingly.

What affects the supply and demand?

Company finances and performance –The investor’s attitude towards the company is partially affected by the management and internal relations. A stable and capable leadership together with a good policy of social responsibility is usually expected to continue to grow and succeed. Hence the prices of the shares tend to increase. Publicly traded companies have to publish their recent earnings, cash flow and performance forecast in a report. These reports can affect the supply and demand. The share price may also be affected by dividend announcements. If dividends are higher than expected, the price of the shares rise, if it’s lower the price decreases.

Politics – Governments shapes and affect the environment businesses operate in, with things such as regulations, policies, laws, taxation, international relations etc. As these factors can affect the ability of which a company can handle their business, have access to their materials, do marketing and how they can distribute and produce their product/service politics can affect the share prices.

Economics –The economy tends to fluctuate, and so does stock prices. The prices tend to fall during a recession and rise as the economy does.

Investors –Who is playing the market affects the prices. If the market has more bears than bulls, share prices decline. If the market has more bulls than bears, the prices increase.
