Investor Education

  • Parking : 

    This is when an investor places his money in safe investments while alternative investment avenues are being considered or while the stock market is unfavourable for fresh investments.

    .
  • Long Squeeze : 

    A long squeeze occurs when the value of a stock drops in price thereby inciting further selling by more shareholders to avoid incurring dramatic loss. A long squeeze ends when the price falls to a point deemed to be too low then more investors come in to buy the stock and the price rises again.

    .
  • Narrowing the Spread : 

    This is shortening the gap between the price that a buyer is offering to pay for a share (bid price), and the price a seller is quoting to sell it at (ask price). As the spread narrows, more buyers and sellers join in and the stock is traded more actively. It is also called price improvement.

    .
  • Articles of Association : 

    This is a document describing the purpose, place of business and details of a company. Every incorporated company in Kenya by law must have and submit this document to the registrar of companies and work by what it stipulates. The articles of association together with the memorandum of association form the constitution of a company.

    .
  • Bear : 

    A stock market speculator who expects share prices to fall and therefore keeps selling in anticipation to buy the shares later at a lower price. All individuals can be bearish at times although some are perennially so. The term is derived from the attacking posture of the bear; pushing downwards.
