A stock, also referred to as a share or equity, is a stake in the ownership of a company. The more stock a shareholder owns, the greater their claim on the company's profits. When trading derivatives with trades.com, rather than purchasing or selling actual company shares, you are trading, virtually, on the shifting price of the underlying asset.
Stocks are traded on exchanges, marketplaces where investors can connect to buy and sell determining the stock value. Stock prices are based on a number of factors, such as supply and demand, or investor sentiment and expectations based on company earnings. For example, if a company has published record high results, this will positively influence the valuation of the company on the market.
