Investor Education

  • Prospectus : 

    A prospectus is a formal document offering to sell shares to the public that gives all relevant details of the company (or mutual fund) that an investor needs to know to make an investment decision. 

    .
  • Stop Order : 

    A stop order is one placed by an investor with a stockbroker to buy or sell shares at a particular price (stop price) or better.

    .
  • Strong Buy : 

    This is a strong recommendation by an analyst or stockbroker to an investor to buy shares in a particular company which he believes will soon be experiencing positive financial performance.

    .
  • 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.

    .
  • Sentiment : 

    This is the measurement of the mood of the investing public. It’s mostly described as bullish or bearish.
