Let’s say you’re brand new to all the stock market nonsense and you’re trying to figure out what the heck all this stuff means.
You can’t just dive head first into trading. You’ll drown.
The best way to dip your toes into the water is to find a way to learn the difference between stocks, futures and options trading…
Just trying to differentiate between the three can become a bit mind-boggling… Do you know which one buys/sells contracts and which one buys the right (not the obligation) to buy/sell stocks?
In my opinion, the most reasonable and traditional way to go about this is to keep things simple.
