Different types of stocks how you can Categorize it and I'll also go over some Of the most popular basic stock market Terminology by the way I'm going to Break things down in a way that is Simple to understand so we're going to Be using a lot of analogies a lot of Visuals and this way you'll have a Proper idea on not only what stocks are But you'll really know like it's the Back of your hand exactly how this whole Thing works so why should you invest Into this stock market here I have four Points listed out and they're going to Be several reasons but I believe this Here is the most important number one You're gonna have a potential for Long-term growth financially Historically the stock market has Provided higher returns over the long Term compared to other investment Options such as bonds and savings Accounts by investing in the stock Market you're going to have the Potential to grow your wealth over time The next reason you should be investing Into the stock market is for Diversification investing allows you to Make money in your sleep it's what Entrepreneurs call passive income or Making that Wi-Fi bread and basically if You understand proper diversification And investing into the markets you can Find that you're making money every time

Without having to work or put in extra Effort it also goes back into that Popular saying if you ever read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki Talks about how you can get money to Work for you instead of working for Money one of the best and easiest ways To do that is to find time to invest and Allow those Investments to start Creating new generational wealth Investing into the stock Market is also A great way to diversify in whole as Your portfolio reduces risks because When you invest into the stock market You don't have to just choose a singular Stock within the tech Market or maybe a Oil stock you can diversify the entire Portfolio and reduce your overall Risk By owning stocks from different Companies across various sectors and Industries and you can spread your risk And potentially minimize losses Now Stocks also are a great way to earn Passive income because some stocks pay Dividends which are a portion of the Company's profits that are distributed To shareholders so just by owning a Stock you can get paid consistently Every single month or every quarter for Those Investments that you hold last but Not least stocks are a great way to Hedge yourself against inflation this is Pretty much more relevant now than ever Before because inflation is just crazy

The cost of eggs the cost of goods the Cost of cars by investing into the stock Market you have the potential to earn Returns at outpace inflation and it Allows you to preserve The Purge Interesting power of your savings Investing to the market sounds pretty Good but why should you even consider Investing now well nowadays there are More tools than ever before for you to Become a successful investor if you Wanted to get into the stock market even Over 10 years ago you would not have Resources that exist today such as free Online courses free YouTube videos like The one that you're watching here and Different types of tools where you have Blogs you have Google you have other Websites like Investopedia that give you So much information and the tools that You need in order to make money it's Also never been cheaper to invest Brokers used to charge a one to two Percent fee per trade but nowadays you Can also find several Great Commission Free investing platforms and on top of That one of the next points is that Investing is arguably the greatest tool For growing real wealth according to Historical data the average annualized Return on the S P 500 is around 10 where Your cash is losing value every single Day the US economy recently also had a 40-year High inflation rate and with our

Current rate your cash is losing at Around six percent at the time of Filming this video of its value just by Sitting in a checking or savings account Now although these things sound great There are General risks that you do need To know about before investing to the Market the main one here is going to be Market volatility and this is pretty Much where the stock market itself is Going to have inherent ups and downs Where prices can fluctuate dramatically And unpredictably although in the long Term run a lot of people will make money Within the stock market most investors Might actually lose money in the first Few years or when they first get started Because they don't know how to handle Their emotions and they go into these Investments they Panic a little and they Decide to sell at a loss if you don't Know how to manage your risk properly There will be times where volatility Pulls up and you end up selling in panic If that happens that's obviously a risk And not a benefit within investing into The market and on top of that whenever We have economic uncertainty you have to Realize that the stock market is going To be closely tied to the overall state Of how the General economy is doing so Different things such as inflation Higher interest rates or changes in Government policies can all have a

Significant detrimental impact on how Stock prices look for certain companies In the best case scenario you know the Market is flooded with trillions of Dollars There is almost zero risk where We're seeing inflation and interest Rates going up there's still a risk Where you get company specific issues And this occurs when you decide to Invest in a specific company or a stock And for some reason they decide they're Not going to do well they decide to go Through some financial difficulties and What happens is when some of these Companies go through any type of Financial difficulty we'll see the stock Price begin to drop now two more General Risks of investing into the stock market Involve timing and liquidity so timing Is when investing into the stock market Requires a long-term perspective but It's oftentimes like I mentioned earlier Where investors get a little antsy and They decide I'm gonna sell a little bit Earlier which can result in more loss Another risk of investing into the stock Market is if you bought a lower cap Stock where it doesn't have that much Volume and you're unable to sell those Positions this is more on a rare Occurrence just because a lot of people Aren't actively trading huge amounts Like hundreds of thousands of dollars Into some of these what you call penny

Stocks but we'll talk more about that a Little later in this video so by Definition investing in stocks is like Owning a small piece of a company when You buy a stock you become a shareholder Of that company and you have a small Ownership stake in it so if I bought Some Chipotle stock I could go out and Point at that Chipotle on my street and Say I own a piece of that company when You say that I mean you're not telling The full truth because you don't really Own all of Chipotle but you're not lying Either because by owning a small share Of it you do become a technical owner of That company so the value of your Ownership State can go up or down based On how well the company is doing so I Would think about it like this if you Ever decide to invest early on where a Company has a lot of risk say it's a new Startup okay and they're coming out with Some new Rev evolutionary technology Where you put inside of your shoe like Some uh some Dr Scholl's looking Alternatives it's basically a lot Comfier makes you a little taller you Can jump a little higher and it just Makes your feet and standing all day a Lot easier on your joints a lot of People may not believe in this company But you do say you invest in early and About a few years later they end up Having what Apple did in the whole

Entire world they just end up taking Over they have a whole bunch of products And you end up actually seeing the Company grow a significant amount if you End up putting and investing a lot of Money earlier on and that company grows Their stocks are naturally going to Increase in price as well and that means You're gonna make money another analogy Of what stocks are is just think about Buying a slice of pizza when you buy a Slice of pizza you own a small piece of The entire whole pizza but if the pizza Is really popular and more people want To buy it the value of the entire Pizza Goes up but so does your slice now if The people don't like the pizza that you Bought and fewer people want to buy it The value you of your slice goes down so Similarly if the company you invest in Does well and it makes a lot of money The value of your stock goes up but if The company performs poorly say those Little Dr Scholls or you got some smelly Gross Pizza that nobody else wants then The value of your stock goes down and The money you put in there would also go Down in price so why do companies issue Stock well the way I think about it There are a lot of businesses mom and Pop shops that aren't publicly exchanged On the stock market so companies Actually issue stocks to raise money From investors if you ever have watched

The show shark tank with Kevin O'Leary Mark Cuban and a few others you'll Notice that there are little startup Businesses that are trying to raise Money in order to grow their business Even more now a lot of startups don't Actually get to just hop onto the stock Market exchange and get listed publicly And then start getting a whole bunch of People to buy up their shares a lot of Them would initially need to go through A rigorous process in order to ever get Listed on any of the stock exchanges Now By issuing stock the company also sells Ownership in itself two investors in Exchange for additional cash so there Are going to be some businesses where They never want to sell ownership for Most companies in order for them to Expand they're always going to need more Cash to develop whatever technology that They want to achieve Apple probably Wouldn't have been able to get to the Size that they are now if they were Never able to raise money because it Costs a lot of money to make 100 or a Couple thousand different iPhones and Just think about all the technology they Need now in order to continue with Production and all the different Equipment that they offer by companies Issuing stocks this here helps the Company raise money without taking on Additional debt and investors who buy

The stock become shareholders of the Company which means they have a claim on The company's earnings and their Assets Now by the way there are actually two Different types of stocks there's Something called common stock and Preferred stock which we'll go over Later now that you have a better idea on What stocks are let's talk about what a Stock market is and this is really Simple basically a stock market is just Where people can buy and sell tiny Pieces of ownership in bigger companies So as an example imagine your friends Started a lemonade stand and she needed More money to buy more lemons and sugar In order to scale that business so in Order to do that she might ask you and Some additional friends to chip in some Money to help her out in exchange she Might give you a little piece of her Lemonade stand like a tiny part of the Table or even some of the cups on it That right there is kind of like what Buying a stock off the stock market Exchange is you're giving a company some Money in exchange for a tiny piece of Ownership when people buy and sell these Little pieces of ownership on something It's called a stock exchange and it's Like a big marketplace where people can Then begin to trade different ownership Pieces with one another when you own a Piece of the company or say as an

Example this lemonade stand and it goes Up in value if someone else says wow This lemonade stand is popping this Business is doing well you can offer to Sell your piece of the lemonade stand to This new buyer by doing this you're Going to be getting even more money Because you bought in earlier on before It was valued even more and the other Person who is buying the shares off of You would be getting a good deal if that Lemonade Stand does decide to increase In its price keep in mind there's always A chance that the company does not do Well so if this time comes where you Know someone wants to buy it from you They could also lose money if the Lemonade stand happens to not scale or Not have the fresh drinks like it once Did so I mentioned earlier that there's Preferred stock and common stock Although they have some similarities They are different in a few ways as well So when it comes to preferred stock Preferred shareholders will pretty much Have a priority over a company's income Meaning that they're paid dividends Before Common shareholders and they also Get paid out first in the case of Bankruptcy but you have no voting rights Now on the other hand of that we have Common stock and this is a majority of What stocks are issued in so common Stockholders are last in line when it

Comes to company assets which means that They're going to be paid out after Creditors bondholders and the preferred Shared holders on the other hand of Preferred shareholders common Stockholders actually have voting rights Within the company so as an example Preferred stocks Pepsi has several Series of preferred stocks which pay a Fixed dividend and they also have a Higher claim on the company's assets Than the company common stockholders now Wells Fargo is also another preferred Stock which pays a fixed dividend and They have priority over common Stockholders in the event of a company Liquidation on the other hand of that Some good examples of Common Stocks is Apple this provides investors with Voting rights and potential for capital Appreciation you also have Amazon which Is another common stock that provides Investors with voting rights for Potential capital appreciation and like Always usually Common Stocks are not Going to be paying a dividend and it's Important to note that there are many Stock markets available and not all Companies issue preferred stocks and Additionally each Company's stock may Have different characteristics so like Always it's important to do your own Research before investing now what you Need to know next is stock

Categorization and there are three main Ways to categorize different stocks Starting with number one it's going to Be the overall company size the way this Is classified is that we have small cap Mid cap and also large cap if it's a Small cap company it's going to have a Market capacity of less than two billion Dollars if it's a mid cap it's going to Be anywhere from 2 billion to 10 billion Dollars and if it's a ginormous large Cap company it will be worth over 10 Billion dollars in market cap another One is going to be the sector industry Where stocks can also be categorized Based on whatever Market they operate in So as an example there's technology There's energy Healthcare Financial Services travel there's Airlines I mean There's a lot of different categories That you can get into I know even Additional ones that were growing and Going crazy during the pandemic was like Cannabis stocks or solar stocks there's A lot the third way to categorize this Is the style and the strategy so you can Also divide different Stocks by knowing If they are a growth stock something That is focused on actually driving up Performance and making an impact on the World or you can also look at dividend Stocks which pay out that fixed monthly Amount for being a stockholder and also You have value stocks now in this

Section I'm going to be going over some Basic stock market terminology I Actually have here on the screen some of My favorite ones which I wish I knew Earlier so by understanding what all of This means you're going to have a very Good general idea of the entire Market It's not just for beginners but I think Everyone should know this off point but I just wish they taught a lot of this in School anyways the first one that I have Here is knowing what a bull market is Versus a bear Market basically when an Investor is bullish it means they have a Positive outlook and they expect prices To rise in other words they believe just An entire Market sector security is Going to have an upward trend on the Other hand if an investor is bearish They have a negative outlook and expect Prices to fall now the best way to Remember the difference between a bull And a bear Market just remember this I Think about the movie I believe it's Called the Reverend with Leonardo DiCaprio where a bear was literally Mauling him and it was like a graphic Scene and it was just destroying him so I think of bears with like negativity on The other hand of that Bulls are moving Forward they're animals that like to Move at PACE and they don't slow down And they're trying to constantly hit Their target now Blue Chip stocks so

This is basically just stocks that are Compiled of large industry-leading Companies the expression from this came From Blue gambling chips which are Oftentimes the highest value chips Within a casino if someone says oh I Only trade Blue Chip stocks it means That they're not really risky because They're trading some of the biggest Companies that are probably not going to Go out of business anytime soon so by Investing into those blue chip companies You're not going to be seeing huge Upside but you also invest into safer More conservative bets now you also need To know what different common trading Strategies so there's day trading swing Trading and position trading day trading Involves buying and selling securities Within the same trading Day Day Traders Also typically make multiple trades in a Single day and close out all positions Before before the market closes this Pretty much just talking about like Anyone you see like those Instagram you Know Forex guys where they see a whole Bunch of the lines and the candles and It looks like they're like hacking or Doing some data stuff that is Essentially day trading it's where you Find market volatility you enter and Within the first five to ten minutes They might open a position and close it Out and if they can make a profit within

That short period of time they're often Called day Traders now by the way even If they're not making a profit they're Called day Traders too and out of all The different investment Styles day Trading is the most highest risk but if You know what you're doing there are Definitely ways that a lot of people can Make more money than you would ever from Swing trading or position trading now Swing trading is what I would imagine Just visually like someone is on a swing And they're going back and forth usually It means you start investing into a Position at one week and maybe in the Next week or the following week or even Maybe a few days they decide to capture That short-term price movement for a Profit swing trading is often what I do Because I just don't have the patience To sit through and day trade I think day Trading is more on the gambling side Because you just never know for sure What a stock is going to do and if You're buying in a way where you're Gonna sell instantly and you're just Tossing it up in the air I say that's More of a risk and that's something out Of your control that's more of gambling But if you're swing trading you have Different contingencies in place where If it hits a certain amount it's going To automatically sell but still it's a Form of what people call long term

Trading a very arguable type of Investing now position trading involves Holding Securities for an extended Period of time typically for several Months to even several years position Traders is what I call actual investing Where you aim to capture the long-term Trends within a market now scalping Involves making very short-term trades Often just a few seconds or minutes long So within day trading scalping is Something that can occur pretty commonly And scalpers aim to profit from small Small price movements to making multiple Trade rates throughout the day on top of That you have algorithmic trading and Options trading algorithmic trading Pretty much involves using computer Programs to execute trades based on Predetermined rules and algorithms this Is where if you ever hear like a finance Pro trying to flex on you and they say Oh I'm into Quant trading and doing all That that falls within the umbrella of Different algorithmic trades using Complex mathematical models to identify Profitable trading opportunities last But not least in the world of trading You have options trading this is a bit More advanced but options allows you to Buy and sell contracts which gives the Holder the right to buy or sell security At a predetermined price within a Certain time frame so I would say

Options go outside of the scope of this Video but basically it's another Strategy where if you don't have that Much money and you don't want to use Leverage which is pretty much taking a Loan out from some of these exchanges or If you only have a thousand dollars to Your name leverage would allow you to Have an extra ten thousand dollars Within your account but if you lose it You go into automatic debt if you do Decide to do well you're going to be Making way more money than you initially Could have the other option to that is Literally called options trading where If you don't have the money up front Right now you can choose different Contracts that still could allow you to Profit a significant amount in the Future Now options trading was a lot Harder to do back in the day but Nowadays with all these apps and free Resources they will tell you you know if You choose a contract out of the money Like far out ahead in the future months And for whatever reason you think for Some reason you know Apple's gonna Release a new company product that's Gonna blow everyone away and no one Knows about it only you this might be Something viable to you but as a Beginner I would just focus on the Fundamentals that I'm going to share in This video and then later on if you guys

Are looking to learn more about options Or even someone more safer types of Investments like just going into Dividend trades let me know Down Below In the comments because this is Definitely something I can add into the Pipeline of making some more guides for You on to sum up the different training Strategies just know that all of them Have their own advantages and risks and It's important for you to understand That each strategy has different Tolerances so if you don't have the time Or the capacity to do scalping or day Trades then it might even make more Sense for you to be a swing Trader or Someone to go position trading in a very Long term mindset on top of that we have Something called going long versus going Short and to go long or short on a stock Means to take position on the direction Of that price movement basically when Investor decides to go long on a stock It means they are buying shares of the Stock with the expectation that it's Going to go up in price in the future The opposite end of that if a investor Thinks that a stock is not going to do Well they can bet against it and they Can short a stock so by definition a Short squeeze is just a market Phenomenon in which an unexpected rise In the price of a heavily shorted stock Prompts large numbers of short sellers

To exit their positions by buying the Stock up and thus driving the price of It further so if you guys were around During the whole AMC and GameStop Saga Basically everyone was betting that this Stock was going to continue to go down So a lot of the Hedge G's or hedge funds These huge institutions had placed so Many bets that GameStop and AMC it was Worthless and they were going to keep Shorting it because it was going to keep Going down the more shorts that were Open the more it was driving the price Of that stock down and down and down a Few other people within the Reddit Community realize there are too many Short positions open here and it doesn't Deserve to be this low what if we get People to start buying the stock forcing It to go up and if it does then the Hedge funds who bought shorts on it Would have to cover their shorts they'd Have to buy back those positions forcing It up even more and that's why we had Some crazy historical price movements of What we know as a short squeeze so the Next chapter of this let's go over the Basics of what you need to know before You start investing this will include Setting financial goals and creating Your own custom investment plan we're Gonna identify your risk profile and What that means and we're going to talk About the difference between active

Investing and passive investing and how You can use that for your own benefit so First of all setting financial goals and Having an investment plan are essential When it comes to stock market investing The reason for this is that setting Financial goals is going to help you Define what you want to achieve with Those Investments and it could also help You generate a certain level of income Say for example reaching your goal of Saving up for that dream house and Getting that down payment on it or Saving up for your future retirement by Knowing your goal it's going to help you To stay focused and to make better Decisions a lot of people invest into The market saying okay I just want to Make as much money as I can wrong answer That is the worst mentality to go for Have a certain goal maybe you want to Make an additional thousand dollars a Month maybe you want to make a hundred Thousand dollars by the time you turn 30. use these as different milestones in Order to gauge how much you need to Invest in the market the type of risks That you may need to take and how much You need to realistically be making Every week or every month or even by the End of the year for you to stay on track Going into risk tolerance Everyone by The way has a different level of risk Tolerance so it's going to be different

For someone who has five different kids Okay and there are living paycheck to Paycheck versus a young 21 year old Entrepreneur who had an inheritance of 10 million dollars from his mommy and Daddy okay the one kid who's inherited a Lot of money has a higher risk tolerance Where he could lose a million dollars It's not going to make a difference on His life he could just access more of His uh well treasured fun that his Parents gave him versus if you lose a Million dollars and you put yourself in Debt you have kids that could possibly Go starving an investment plan is going To help you create a portfolio that Aligns within your own risk tolerance And your financial goals so identify Exactly who you are how much you can Lose within the market and what you can Risk within setting a financial goal you Have to reduce your emotional investing Because emotions is ultimately what Leads to rational decisions and arguably This is what causes a lot of people to Actually lose money within investing now We talked earlier about diversification But this is reiterated here it is so Important to diversify and that's why It's important to set this aside and Managing your own risk within your Portfolio an investment plan is a Surefire way to help you create a Diversified portfolio that reduces your

Overall risk and last but not least Better returns this year just means that A well-structured investment plan can Help you achieve better returns over the Long term instead of consistently trying To day trade the market losing every Time you can find that if you have a Good sought out Financial goal and Investment plan set you can make more Money over the long term run so I highly Recommend you guys to do this get a Notebook this can be a brand new Notebook that you buy just for trading And journaling and write down the Answers to these questions what is your Game plan what is your budget what are Your financial goals why are you Investing where do you want to end up How much of your income can you allocate Towards investing by answering those Questions you're going to be able to Reflect more on who you are and the risk That you can take before you can even Invest I highly recommend that you have These three things done first of all Eliminate any debt if you have any type Of credit card debt or even just like Like high auto loans like 12 to 15 Percent that are destroying you make Sure before you ever start investing you Start taking care of those different Types of interest bearing loans if on Average the annual return in a stock Market is between eight to ten percent

But you're paying a 12 to 20 percent Interest rate on your credit card it is Not going to make sense for you to start Investing on top of that you want to Make sure you have a rainy day fund a Lot of people will encourage six months I say have a 12 month rainy day fund Where it'll cover all your living Expenses so if you decide okay I got no Money right now you know you lost your Job you're going to be okay for the First year because you have enough money Saved up so you can find another job Where then you can decide to invest Later on now last but not least identify Your risk profile now this here is so Important we just did a whole section on It we talked about it a lot but it is That important that I had to put it Twice within this PowerPoint know your Risk profile and move accordingly guys General principles of getting to know Your risk profile like I said game plan Budget financial goals why you're Investing when you'll need that money And whether or not you're interested in High risk High reward or if you're more Interested in low risk low reward if You're on that low risk investment side They're going to be options and Alternatives such as bonds CDs and Mutual funds but if you are a little bit Of a higher risk individual you're going To have growth stocks biotech stocks

Crypto and other Futures and different Instruments that you can use in order to Leverage some of the tools that exist in Today's modern day a general rule of Thumb though for most investors is that If you're on the younger side it's Usually 80 stocks and 20 in safer bonds And if you're someone who might be Retired or you're more in the Respectable older category it's Generally less stocks which are more Risky and having more bonds which is a Lot safer as you age it's important to Rebalance your portfolio every year or So so this also depends on multitude of Different factors if you get a pay raise If maybe you lose your job you're going To be acting a different way with your Own investment now out of that we have Two different types of investing we have Active investing and passive investing So active investing is going to be Buying and selling quickly based off Stock tips ta sudden price movements ta Is technical analysis which we'll talk About a little bit later on on the other End of that you also have passive Investing where pretty much you buy an Asset and you decide to just forget About it and this is also called hodling Or holding on to dear life out of the Two active investing is going to be a Lot more fun and more exciting but Statistically you're likely to make more

Money through passive investing where Contrary a lot of people think that the More you do the more effort you put in The higher output you would get but when It comes to investing it's a little Different it's like you know do your Research before execute on a trade Forget about it and most often the Person who's just hoddling leaving it in There and not trying to time the market Every single time usually comes out as a Better long-term successful investor Who's made more money when it comes to The benefits of long-term investing you Also have compound interest where Basically this allows you to take Advantage of the power of Investments Growing over time and the returns Generated by those Investments Generating even more returns if you do Decide to invest for the long term you Can also write out most Market Volatility so if you're going to be Investing for three to five years Whatever happens between that time if it Dips down a lot and then goes up a Little and then goes down even more You're not gonna be tempted to take a Loss you'll just ride it out and then at The end of that tunnel if you end up Being higher from where you enter the Market initially you'd still be making Good money so on top of that long-term Investing will give you even more tax

Advantages so a lot of people forget the Fact that when you invest every time you Buy and sell you actually have to pay Short-term capital gains on that amount If you did decide you'd make a profit Long-term investing allows you to pay Lower tax rates because you then get Classified as long-term capital gains so This part of the video let's go over how You can get started with opening a brand New brokerage account by the way what is A brokerage account let's go back to the Lemonade example so brokerage account is Kind of like the lemonade stand itself But instead of selling lemonade they Help people to buy and sell things like Stocks bonds and other Investments now Just like how the person running the Lemonade stand sets a price for their Lemonade a brokerage helps people figure Out the right price to buy or sell their Investment to other people who are Interested brokerages also help people Decide which Investments might be good Choices because they offer different Tools think of this being a tool or a Marketplace for you to actually go into The stock market and make an execute a Trade now the brokerage firm that I'm Going to be using for the example this Video is going to be MooMoo this portion Of the video here is sponsored by MooMoo And they actually told me that if I'm Working on a video like this they're

Going to be giving you guys free stocks And this is not just one or two free Stocks but this is going to be 15 free Stocks for anyone trying to sign up Another reason why this is amazing too Guys back when I first started they were Not giving out free stocks like they Were now with this offer here you could Essentially just sell the free stocks You have make up profit you could Withdraw back into your checking account And say that you've made money within The stock market by literally not Risking anything at all now before we Start though there's a lot of stock Market exchanges you might be wondering Why MooMoo and whether or not it's Really safe because anything that rhymes With poo poo I'm a little skeptical About especially having my own Hard-earned money in there so I think we Need to First Define what MooMoo is Because this is more than just a Brokerage this is an app that allows you To also trade stocks options and ETFs Straight from your laptop your iPad and Your iPhone what I love about Muma is Just the fact that they don't charge any Commission fees so there's a lot of Other brokerages that still do this they Charge commission fees where they add up Over time if you guys also were around During the whole Robin Hood you know Collapse the reason that that happened

Was because of pay for order flow type Of orders MooMoo does not participate in That so you don't need to worry about Any Shady practices they are also a Member of the SEC finra and the sipc With sipc protection MooMoo users will Get protection of up to five hundred Thousand dollars on their account which Also includes a two hundred fifty Thousand dollar limit for cash MooMoo is Also owned by the parent company futu When it comes to this app first of all Guys I use Apple devices for like pretty Much everything I have my iPad right Here I have a Macbook here I got my IPhone I got multiple devices they have A really good UI software for Apple Devices but even if you're on PC it's Pretty clean on there too to get started Use the link Down Below in the Description this is where you're gonna Get those free stocks and I'll show you What those free stocks look like and how To redeem them all right so ladies and Gents when you set up your MooMoo Account you're going to be opened up to This page it's going to look very Similar on your iPad on your phone Whatever device you're using go into my Rewards draw I have 14 free stocks so Two dollars 18 cents I got 13 more free Stocks 2.95 two dollars two dollars Ninety ninety some cents 2.81 cents just Keep going let's see okay I got pounds

Here eight dollars two dollars two Dollars ninety one two dollars ninety One come on let me see if I can get Something good here so a lot of the Stocks it looks like I got were on the Lower end but that's okay with me that's Completely fine now guys what I did was Load a thousand dollars into my MooMoo Account and here what I want to actually Show you is how to buy a stock and I'll Also sell it for the purpose of this Video in order to do that I'm gonna go Into markets here you have access to Many different markets so I have us I Can go into the options Market you know We talked about Apple at the beginning Of this uh video so we're gonna use the Apple stock you're gonna be noticing a Lot of different lines and charts and Graphs if I go into indicators these Things are called technical analysis Tools guys you don't need to know all of This as a beginner right now the best And easiest thing that you can do is Take a look at knowing how it's doing on The five day how it's doing on the one Day and even how it's performing in the Last one month there was a high of 705 Dollars 2012 sorry it was it was back a While ago and you'll also need to know Something called a stock split so if a Stock one time was eight hundred dollars Two thousand dollars but then all of a Sudden it's half the price of that what

Companies will do is split their stock So they will make it a more affordable For other people to get into a certain Share it doesn't change the valuation of The company it just makes it look more Appealing to a lot of other investors Because if Apple was at three thousand Dollars per share I probably wouldn't Want to buy it even if I could buy a Fractional share which means I don't Need to buy one whole share I could buy Like half of it or a quarter of it or Even a tenth of it so if we take a look At Apple right here I'm on the one month Chart I can even go into the one week I Could just zoom this out right here and See the performance I believe there was A stock split here and since then I mean It's just a very consistent stock so It's 159 today if I want to go ahead and Buy this Stock press buy first of all You're gonna have a market order this is The simplest type of order where if you Want to simply just you know buy or sell A stock at the current market price it's Gonna do that it's going to execute it Immediately you also have limit order at The top this is pretty much where you Allows you to set a specific price that You're willing to buy or sell a stock at So for example if you want to buy you Know this Apple stock at a hundred fifty Dollars I could go ahead and put the Amount

Right here on the app we're going to Change this to limit which is already There and then you know we'll change it To 150 that's when I want to buy it and Then I enter the quality and then I Could execute now if I go into different Options though going back going into Trade going into buy so if I click on The order type right here I can open up Different conditional orders a stop Order is used to limit your losses if The stock prices drops below a certain Level below that you're going to see Trailing stop limit and trailing stop so A trailing stop order is similar to a Stop loss order but it follows the price Of the stock as it moves up so for Example if you own a stock that's Currently at sixty dollars per share you Might set a trailing stop order at fifty Dollars with a trailing amount of five Dollars if the stock price drops to 55 Your trailing stop order will be Triggered and your shares will be sold Automatically now there's a stop limit At the top of this and pretty much this Is a combination of a stop loss order And a limit order and it means that if You want to sell a stock for example if You own a stock that currently is at 60 Per share you might set a stop limit Order to sell it if it drops to fifty Dollars but only if you can sell it for At least forty five dollars per share so

For the example of this video guys I'm Just gonna buy a market limit right here So we're gonna press Market we're gonna Go into one I'm gonna press buy and you Set a trading password all right so to Buy a stock it's really simple literally All right so I just bought some Apple Share at 160 dollars now this is not too Much of a volatile stock but if I wanted To got a little achievement here got Another achievement I'm gonna go into my Account so I actually got 78 dollars Worth of free stock if I want to access It there's some conditions here too Going into my portfolio though right now I have some Apple stock right now it's At 160 dollars there there's not much That's happening with it but if at any Time I want to sell I'll just go back Into trade I could sell my stock and I Could set it for the market and whatever It is right now I would sell it maybe I Make like 20 cents off this trade Basically if I go back into my account I Now have made a profit of two cents in The span of like two seconds so that Right there is I would say uh just the Easy way to show you if you guys do want To sign up for MooMoo if you guys want To also get started with this exchange Check out the link Down Below in the Description or scan the QR code on your Screen now keep in mind these are Affiliate links I will have the

Disclaimers linked Down Below in the Description for you guys as always but Like I mentioned if you go ahead just Sign up get the free stock so you don't Like the app you can always just Transfer back into your bank account and They're not going to charge you any fee To sign up going into chapter four in This section I want to cover Fundamentals versus technical analysis I'm going to go over long position for Short positioning and what the Difference actually means when you start Investing frequently we're going to be Talking about the importance of staying Informed about market news and Company Developments and I'm going to be sharing With you four steps to building your own Stock portfolio in addition to a Strategy called dollar cost averaging to Help you make money more consistently And ride out any turbulence so guys Fundamental versus technical analysis we Talked about this a little bit earlier On but let me dive deeper fundamental Analysis evaluates Stocks by attempting To measure their intrinsic value Fundamental analysis study everything From the overall economy and Industry Conditions to the financial strength and Management of individual companies now Technical analysis differs from Fundamental analysis if you choose to Use ta some people don't care at all

About fundamental analysis they might Look at the market cap to see if it's Like a lower cap company stock to see How much you know volatility or Liquidity there is technical analysis Just refers to a lot of the statistical Trends such as the movement in a stock Price and volume and like I just said They do not attempt to measure a Security's intrinsic value but instead They try to use charts to identify Patterns and Trends to suggest what a Stock will do in the future so ta is a Little bit harder in my opinion I think Fundamental analysis is a lot easier to Do the research is very straightforward And once you understand just the basics Like p e ratio Market cap the size any Feature earnings or even just like the Developments that a company might do so Say Chipotle is coming out with the best Tasting burrito and it's actually really Good and no one knows about it right now You could say arguably that's a bit more Fundamental analysis you had to do some More research on the back end to know That something new is going to happen With ta you're looking at lines and Charts you're looking at what I showed You earlier the Bollinger Bands the Moving averages the EMAs exponential Moving averages and if you're looking at Those lines you'll also be looking at Candles so you'll see support levels

Resistance levels so if a stock is Reaching a resistance level and it's About to break it and if it's going to Come down and hit a support level that That's what ta is we're not going to go Into the nitty-gritty stuff of it now to Become a proper fundamental analysis There are a few things that you're going To need to learn and know how to read And this is also going to include Financial statements balance sheets Income statements cash flow statements And there are also going to be other Things such as key financial data which Includes earnings per share or EPS the p E ratio the price to earning ratio Bill The price to earnings to growth ratio And other Financial metrics like The Price to Book ratio the return on equity And you can also if you really wanted to Do a deeper dive on their 10K report or Their annual financials or even their Quarterly financials to get an idea on If a company's balance sheet reflects What their stock price is for the Technical analysis chart I pretty much Just covered a lot of what you need to Know they're going to use trend lines Candlestick fundamentals they're going To be going through patterns on the Chart they're going to look at time Frames how it's doing on the 50-minute Five minute Mark sometimes they look at Like the 30 second Mark if you're a

Little Ambitious on trying to get all the data And they'll use indicators a lot for me Guys look you don't need to be the best At one single thing because some people Say you know and they swear by technical Analysis being the best way to trade Stocks I'd say know the basics of both You don't need to always be going Through a company's uh quarterly Financials to know whether or not it's a Decent buy you can just do a brief look On how their balance sheet looks or Whether or not a company is having good Cash flow and then getting an idea on Whether or not based on the charts to See whether or not today is a good time To buy or maybe if it's at an all-time High and it's above all its moving Averages you might want to wait a little Bit later on if all this is too hard and It's overwhelmingly difficult for you to Choose a stock you can also always just Buy an index indexes are pretty much a Collection of different stocks so Instead of having to make the decision On buying one stock if you're buying a Group or an index that has like a Hundred stocks within it if that entire Index moves forward and does well with The economy you would still be making Money moving forward it's so important Though regardless for you to stay Informed about market news and Company

Developments the reason for this is that When you're making informed investment Decisions you want to know about how the Company is doing and this year will give You better information on whether it's Time to buy sell or hold its stock on Top of that you can identify some buying Opportunities and by being up to date on Market news you'll know know exactly if You've missed anything or something like New technology might be coming up to Disrupt an industry investing always Involves risk for example if you hear News at a company you own in stock is Facing regulatory or legal issues or Like a lawsuit you may want to sell your Shares to avoid potential losses in the Future last but not least by staying Informed about markets you're also going To know exactly how the broader Market Is going to work you can see different Trends and impacts on what it would have On your current Investments ultimately This year is going to help you make more Strategic investment decisions and Potentially achieve better returns now Guys real quick though there's going to Be four steps to creating your own stock Portfolio if you want to start today now With all the things that I mentioned so Far in this video determine that risk Tolerance do those exercises and know Exactly how much money you can put in And how much money you want to make

Within the market by doing that you can Then allocate your portfolio and then You can rebalance periodically so decide Okay if I want to only invest a thousand Dollars into the market let me figure Out a good pie should I do 30 tech Stocks should I do travel stocks what Are you most bullish on if you want to Be more conservative you can go for Dividend stocks where they have huge Market caps they got a lot of money on Their balance sheet they're not going to Make any huge movement to the upside in The future but you know it's a safer Stock where for the next 30 years if Your goal is to just make money and not Lose a cent you'll know that you'll be On track by following that so those are Four quick steps to creating your own Stock portfolio but moving forward one Of my favorite ways to invest into the Market is the dollar cost average if you Don't know what dollar cost averaging is It's very simple imagine that you have a Piggy bank and you want to save some Money every single week so say that no Matter what happens you're putting five Dollars in every single week and when The price is low you put in five dollars When the price is hot you put in five Dollars over time it averages it out I Know it can be scary to buy and out of Stock today so if you don't want to put In a hundred dollars into Apple stock

Right at this moment you could decide to Put in ten dollars into Apple stock for The course of an entire month the Benefit of this is that it's going to Help you get a better average price Price over the long term and reduce the Risk of buying all your shares at a Higher price so if the market does go Down you'll be okay because you balance Out the risk by knowing that tool you Should also know this which are six Essential tips for successful investing Number one I've said this a lot now but It's so important to keep emotions out Of your investment decision making and You want to almost trade like a robot Don't get mad don't get too happy just Trade and make the gains you always want To have a plan for each trade you make So if you decide to buy Apple stock when Are you going to sell a lot of people Buy without having an exit plan if you Decide okay if Apple hits 200 and I make A 50 profit is that good enough for you To sell do not get overly greedy and Have a plan that also goes into Reviewing your trades and Investments Periodically some people check far too Often some people check not too often Enough depending on how you feel Emotionally you know that you can check Maybe every week or maybe at the end of A work day but do not overly check and Do not check not enough diversify do not
