Image via WikipediaOne of the many things I truly do not understand is Stock Trading. The whole stock market boggles my mind! Stock goes up, stock goes down. Money is made, money is lost. I do have a very general knowledge of how the stock market works, but it is very confusing and hard to follow in my opinion.
But, I have family members who absolutely love tho play the market. I say more power to them, they are obviously much brighter than I am. My uncle has an Online Broker who takes care of things for him. I get the impression that Online Trading is easy and quite convenient. I know that Uncle really enjoys the services offered by his online trading company, he talks about it a lot.
I suppose I need to study this some more. There is so much I do not understand in the world of finance. Stocks, cds, mutual funds, annuities, options; I do not have a clue what most of these things are. I suppose part of that is because we just don't have to worry about them because we don't have them. But, I do need to read up on these things. I don't like not understanding things.
