Why trade stocks?

Stock trading is one of the most popular ways to earn money. The stock market moves with a greater amplitude than the currency market, which can be very profitable for traders.

Due to many factors, currencies are very attractive trading instruments. There are exotic and primary pairs so all types of traders can find something to their taste. Meanwhile, with FBS, you can also trade corporate world news, and it is often just as profitable – if not more – than currency trading.

What are stocks?

Shares of publicly traded companies are traded on the largest global exchanges. The behavior of stock prices reflects what global investors and traders think about the company in question. If the market sees a bright future for a company – then its stock will go up. On the other hand, if observers think that the prospects are not very favorable for a public company – the stock will fall.

Similar to constant currency fluctuations, stock price movements make it possible to trade at your own pace. Scalping, casual intraday or long-term trading – you’re sure to find interesting stocks to trade whatever your strategy.

FBS offers a wide selection of stocks

Most of them are primary stocks – which are constantly mentioned in the media headlines so you will always find lots of fundamental and technical data about those stocks to trade them. Amazon, Facebook, Nvidia, Tesla, Coca-Cola and many others that you must know are on the Stocks list in Trading instruments.

In summary, here are some of the advantages of trading stocks:

  • Apart from the Quarterly Earnings report, the company provides much more basic data, news and announcements for trading compared to currencies
  • Unlike currencies, many stocks follow a relatively stable uptrend, over the long term, making it possible to trade low-risk positions
  • The wide range of stocks offered by FBS allows the choice of trading instruments for specific sectors. In addition, although not a stock, the S&P 500 and many other stock market indices are also offered for trading.

Often, stock trading is much more volatile than currencies. Therefore, the potential to earn more profit from trading stocks is more promising in this market sector.
