What are Stock Options?

Stock Options share some similarities with futures contracts and with normal stocks, but they are inherently different.

Options are simply a contract, you do not own the underlying stock that determines the value of your options contract.  Unlike stocks which you can hold indefinitely, options contracts all have an expiry date, and the closer to the expiry date you get the less your option is worth. Read More→

swing trading

Swing trading focuses on trying to make a profit from stocks that are about to make a short term change of direction.  Swing trading is short term but not on the scale of day traders, typically 1 to 5 days.

Swing traders focus purely on the technical situation of a stock.  They are interested only in the stock chart and the momentum (rate of change in the stock price).  There is no real interest in the company’s fundamentals or economics in general. Read More→

What is Day Trading?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Day traders are a special breed.  Specializing in many short duration trades they operate using technical analysis to seek many small wins in the minor fluctuations in stock prices.  Technical analysis is the use of charts based on stock price and the volume of shares sold for the day.

Due to the fact the day traders make many trades in a day many of them seek to use leverage in the trades.  For example they may borrow $50,000 from their brokerage firm and have only $10,000 of their own capital.  This is a 5 to 1 leverage.  This means they can multiply their gains or make more trades in a day.  Seeking a small gain from the intraday fluctuations in a stock price is also called scalping.
