Trading Basics In Equity Presentation

Introduction to Trading Basics in Equity
• Equity trading refers to the buying and selling of company shares on the stock market.
• It allows individuals and institutions to participate in the ownership and profits of publicly traded companies.
• Equities provide potential for long-term growth and income through dividends.

Understanding Stocks
• Stocks represent ownership in a company and are traded on stock exchanges.
• Common stocks offer voting rights and potential for capital appreciation.
• Preferred stocks offer fixed dividends but generally do not provide voting rights.

Types of Orders
• Market Orders: Buy or sell at the current market price.
• Limit Orders: Set a specific price to buy or sell shares.
• Stop Orders: Trigger a trade when the stock reaches a specified price.

Bid and Ask Prices
• The bid price is the highest price a buyer is willing to pay for a stock.
• The ask price is the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for a stock.
• The difference between the bid and ask prices is called the bid-ask spread.

Long and Short Positions
