What does investing in the stock market consist of?


The stock market involves buying or selling financial products (stocks, shares, securities, debts, bonds, etc.) on a financial market. The latter is defined as a virtual or physical platform of exchange between economic actors, which are individuals, private companies, and public institutions.

How to earn money through investing in the stock market?

There are 2 ways to earn money through investing in the stock market. On the one hand, there is capital gain, which works in a simple way. In the beginning, a company sells shares of its capital, through the issuance of shares, on the financial market as a way to raise funds to finance its growth. Then, an investor buys them and becomes a shareholder. After some time, he sells them to another investor at a higher price. The difference in price between the purchase and the resale that results is the capital gain.

On the other hand, there is the dividend and a sum paid periodically by a company to its shareholders in return for the funds invested. The payment is made at the end of the year, half-yearly or quarterly. It is calculated on the basis of the number of shares each shareholder owns in the company.

What are the risks of investing in the stock market?

As any type of investment has risks, investing in the stock market cannot escape them. The most frequent risk is the loss of capital which exists in 2 types. The first type is the fictitious loss of capital following a stock market crash that causes the value of your assets to fall by up to 50%, but the number remains the same.

The second type is the real capital loss which results in the cashing out of the loss through the sale of the assets that have lost value. The second type is the decrease in income, which means that the income received is lower than expected or than that received in previous years. The best-known risk is inflation, which is the depreciation of the value of money over the years, which damages the capital over time.

What are the conditions for investing in the stock market?

    • Ensure that you have a minimum amount that amounts to 5,000 euros. Its transaction can be done at one time or several times in several activities.

    • Invest a portion of your wealth or money you are willing to lose and gradually increase your capital. However, avoid investing all your money at once.
