What are stocks?

 To begin with, stocks represent ownership in a company. When you buy a stock, you are essentially purchasing a small piece of that company. These pieces are called "shares." and as a shareholder, you have a claim on a portion of the company's assets and earnings so when the company makes money, you make money.

Imagine being a part of the ownership of the biggest companies in the world - especially your favorites, how cool is that. It doesn't matter the amount you have, you can still buy a small piece "shares" of a company and this post is here to guide you through. 

NOTE: The value of a stock can go up or down based on various factors, including the company's performance, market conditions, and investor sentiment. It is important to do a lot of research before picking a Stock to invest in. You don't have to invest in any stock just because you hear people talking about it without considering some factors for yourself. You can always do a little check about the company's potential growth.

You will find three buy options which are all ways you can use to buy a stock but you can go for "Buy Now" which will buy at the stock's current price. The seond option allows you to set a limit lower than the current price of the stock so that when price goes down to that amount, it buys for you even if you're offline. The last option allows you to buy a stock when price goes above the current price. Maybe you are anticipating that if the price is able to go up to some amount, then the company has potential to do more and that is when you choose that option but as a beginner, going for the first option is okay. (Buy Now)

Lastly, you input the amount you want to buy in dollars. Currently, the minimun amount you can buy is $10. After this step, you own part of the company.
