There are many words of definition in the Investing stock market forex marketplace. Some of them are bid price, ask price, brokers, spread, pips, market volatility, trading account, currency pair, slippage and brokerage, among the thousands of other terms used by those in the know.
Do you understand them? Don’t worry. The average person doesn’t understand one word of what they mean. It would seem that one would want to know what they did mean if he/she was going to jump into the wonderful money making and sometimes, heart breaking world of investing.
Investing certainly would be a fast moving, exciting, stressful, profitable way to make money as long as you know what you are doing. All this special jargon comes to some people very easily and they understand everything they read and just how to work with their investment brokers so that they become profitable immediately. For others it takes a little more time, but they, too, can earn money very quickly if they know where to go for help and they have some money to risk losing or to make more money.
One important word to remember is “spread” because you PAY the spread and the broker EARNS the spread. When you are searching for a broker, find out how much experience he has had and what banks he works with, who manages the firm, how liquid are their assets, what will happen to you and your trading if you have lost your Internet connection, how much volume of transaction monthly do they do, and what kind of platform is offered? These are just a few of the questions you need to ask and get the answers to them for your own peace of mind.
Be aware of the fact that if you are a person who is afraid of most new adventures and you will be too stressed out should you decide to invest, then, its possible investing is not for you. If you are a person who just goes out there and learns what they are doing, understands the terms used in investing, asks questions, and has the money to take a few risks, then by all means invest. It has certainly been a sure thing for many others all over the World.
