39. Learn the Terminology

Once an investor has decided it’s time to invest in the stock market, they’re almost ready to go. A good idea before contacting a stockbroker is to become familiar with the lingo. We’ve provided a head start with this article, but there are a few more terms that are essential to know.

The most important terms to know are ‘ask’ and ‘bid.’ Ask is the price that sellers will take for a stock. The bid is the price that buyers are good with paying for a stock. The spread is the difference between a stock’s highest bid price and the lowest ask price. Knowing about the market, limit, and stop-loss orders are also imperative.
