Also known as the stock market, it is one of the most vital areas of a market economy because it gives companies access to capital and investors a slice of ownership in a company with the potential to capitalize on the gains, based on its future performance. In order to grow and develop, companies need to invest in their businesses. Stock markets provide them with an opportunity to raise money by selling parts of their businesses as shares, also known as ‘equities’.
The overall market is made up of millions of investors and traders, who may have differing ideas about the value of a specific stock and thus the price at which they are willing to buy or sell it. The thousands of transactions that occur as these investors and traders convert their intentions to actions by buying and/or selling a stock cause minute-by-minute fluctuations over the course of a trading day. A stock exchange provides a platform where such trading can be easily conducted by matching buyers and sellers of stocks.
Studies have proven that shares or equities are one of the best long-term investments in the financial market place. They tend to outperform government bonds, corporate bonds, property and many other types of asset. If you want quick returns then this may not be the best solution for you, but if you want to invest for 10 or 20 years, shares may be a rewarding investment.
