WELCOME TO BUILDING WEALTH THROUGH SHARES
This website is an investment learning resource, based on my experience gained over 50 years investing in Australian stocks. My objective is to pass on what I have learned over a lifetime of investing. Rather than provide investment advice or recommendations, I want to teach how anyone can develop their own investment plan based on a margin of safety, learning how to make their own decisions in finding good stocks, assessing them for value and safety, buying them at a good price and managing risk.
Stock market investors are invited to use the resources provided on this website to improve their investing knowledge and skills. Everything on the website (except for Michael Kemp’s articles and an article by Dr Alexander Elder) is my copyright work. On the free website (green menu bar items) I provide this material at no charge. To access the members’ website (red menu bar items), I ask that you pay a small annual fee, which is to cover the cost of the website and my expenses in teaching investing.
I am continually adding new material to the website.
Stock trading course: Learn about Stock trading
A stock trader or equity trader or share trader is a person or company involved in trading equity securities.
Stock traders may be an agent, hedger, arbitrageur, speculator, stockbroker.
Such equity trading in large publicly traded companies may be through a stock exchange.
Stock shares in smaller public companies may be bought and sold in over-the-counter (OTC) markets.
Stock traders can trade on their own account, called proprietary trading, or through an agent authorized to buy and sell on the owner’s behalf.
Trading through an agent is usually through a stockbroker. Agents are paid a commission for performing the trade.
Major stock exchanges have market makers who help limit price variation (volatility) by buying and selling a particular company’s shares on their own behalf and also on behalf of other clients.
