The Stock Exchange -for Beginners
What is the meaning behind trading on a stock exchange with a leading broker?
As opposing as it may sound, this game is not only for the rich! More and more people are exploiting the benefits of investing on the stock exchange. The objective is to make trading securities and other financial products attainable to everyone, despite their economic position.
The standard way to invest in stocks is through banks and brokers. The main differences between trading with banks and brokers are commissions and technology. Trading through banks usually costs more, as higher commissions are involved.
Initially, the purpose of the stock exchange was created to allow corporations to raise enough money from a variety of investors and supply a market for those investors to sell their shares in those corporations. The money that was taken from these investors, was used for expansion and innovation. Doing this increased the value of the corporation, and eventually resulted in higher profits to the investors. It is much easier for corporations to place themselves on the stock market, rather than resorting to banks for their loans. This procedure is known as Initial Public Offering, or going public.
The stocks of companies that have gone public are traded on stock exchanges. Through the platform of MEXEM you have access to these stock exchanges. It has always been very popular to trade these stocks through the bank you also hold your regular bank account. The disadvantage of trading through your bank is that the costs are much higher than with online brokers and their platform is often outdated. Unlike banks, MEXEM uses state-of-the-art technology designed to allow private investors to enjoy the same benefits as professional (institutional traders).
When you invest in stocks, you are actually acquiring partial control and rights over the company you are trading. MEXEM provides the chance to invest in stocks through the TWS platform, Web platform and Mobile Application.
Trading options is also a regular security, however, due to the fluctuation of prices, it introduces a higher level of risk. This means that the price of the stock will cause a sizable change in the price of the option. MEXEM’s advanced systems were designed for professionals and offer an overflow of tools for advanced option traders.
Futures are financial appliances that are traded in the stock exchange. With futures, the seller is legally obligated to provide a particular asset at a future date when the price is set in advance, and the payment is made at the time the asset is submitted.
MEXEM provides instant access to real-time trading in futures in 125 markets, and 33 countries. The main stock exchanges are frankfurter Wertpapierborse, London Stock Exchange, New York Stock Exchange, Euronext Amsterdam, and the Brussel’s stock exchange. With futures, you can trade products from different industries such as coins, energy, indexes and metals using the same account you use to trade other securities.
An ETF is a financial instrument that allows traders to modify their risk, by trading in a variation of products using only one security, as opposed to trading individually in each product. With MEXEM, you can acquire ETFs on margin or sell the ETFs short. (borrow the assets and sell the stock, hoping to buy them back at a lower cost, return them to the lender and gain profit on the difference.)

With warrants, the holder is granted the right to buy the fundamental stock of the issuing corporation at a fixed price until the offer expires. This grants the holder special privileges to invest in securities. Public corporations typically offer this “as a gift” and as a mechanism to attract investors to invest in stock.
