Simply said, a stock or an equity is a piece of ownership of a company. Stocks are normally considered as a medium to long-term investments. For example, if a trader "buys" (long) a stock on Fibonetix as a leveraged position, means that the trader is investing in the underlying asset without owning it. Therefore, the trader is able to buy fractions of the share.
The stock market is dynamic and presents many options for traders, they are secondary markets where existing owners of shares can transact with potential buyers. Important to know is that corporations listed on the stock market don`t buy and sell their own shares on a regular basis. Therefore, when a trader buys a fraction of a share of stock on the stock market, he/she is not buying it from the company but rather from an existing shareholder. On the other hand, if an investor is willing to sell his/her shares they sell them to other investors instead of selling it back to the company.
Beginner traders have to be aware that each stock is affected by different market events, which could influence its value to go up or down. Some of the important market events are new product launches, changes in competitor's stock prices, earnings reports, etc. For example, if Google receives a negative press release after a particularly occurred issue, this may lead the company’s current share price to drop, while their main competitors share prices to go up. This is one of the many possible scenarios which may occur as an after effect of a particular market event.
Some of the most popular stocks are Apple, Google (or Alphabet Inc.), Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, Alibaba Group, and many more.
