Corliss Online Financial Mag: Buying Shares or a free practice/virtual trading
Corliss Online Financial Mag describes the process of buying shares, a rather simple step done through a brokerage account. Exactly what a brokerage account is and how it is acquired and where one can get one is not explained. However, the website advises the reader to visit links to fill up that information gap.
Also, the site suggests enrolling in a free practice/virtual trading at ADVFN. Alright, that removes all the missing info from a mere reading and depending on the essential information published on Corliss’ website. Besides, it is not any person or company’s obligation to spoon-feed its readers when they themselves can get that information somewhere else.
The crucial step of buying shares at certain prices is the first and, perhaps, the ultimate step involved in the process of stock market investment. That is where all the asking and the bidding occur. That is where all the success and failure of the entire process begins and ends. Finally, that is where all the feelings of triumph or regret will be focused on by the players after all the counting has ended.
In the din of figures flashing and voices calling out prices and names of companies, one thing is supreme: The individual investor started it all by buying the share at the determined price. It is the same case with those who call out a number at a game of dice or the number chosen at a roulette game. Win or lose, the process goes on and the dice fall how they may.
This unseen and unheralded reality in the process of shares trading is inevitable and even expected, although blindsided people may not realize they will go through it or do so oftentimes. It may seem counter-intuitive for those who see trading as an emotionless or dead activity. But as one that involves humans and their passion for making wealth and dreaming of a comfortable life, it will always involve some form of mystical or transcendental passage not easily acknowledged or recognized.
Not that shares trading can be likened to a game of chance or a case of fortune-telling. As it is, practitioners consider it a science. In between the two contrasting areas must be a place where the mind and the heart work as one and humans find harmony and quietude.
