Stock Trading
Stock trading is the buying and selling of stocks. Most often, stock trading takes place online, away from the trading floors. The electronic markets use vast computer networks for online stock trading to coordinate buyers and sellers. As an individual investor, you still need a broker to handle your trades because you do not have access to electronic markets. Your broker accesses the exchange network and finds a buyer or seller for you.
