Learn How to Invest in Stocks and Bonds

Investing in the stock market is one of the most exciting ways to generate significant returns. Unfortunately, the stock market, and by extension, stocks and bonds, can be intimidating. At the same time, you can’t grow your retirement or investment portfolio unless you start trading and investing.

But where do you start? We at Learn-To-Trade.com warn that investing can be a particularly risky venture without a proper understanding of the stock market, stocks, and bonds. When you invest in the stock market, you’re putting your capital on the line.

We believe that the best way to make money in the stock market is to educate yourself and learn as much as you can before you buy a single stock or bond. While financial service web sites such as Yahoo! can be a great source for information on particular stocks, they are not great destinations for those looking to actually learn how to buy stocks and bonds.

On top of that, the Internet is rife with an abundance of easy-to-find economic information, making it difficult for investors to understand, digest, and even evaluate what’s going on.

In general, the Internet is not a particularly reliable place to learn how to buy stocks and bonds. That’s because it’s easy for anyone, whether or not they have a background in trading, the stock market, or the right academic qualifications, to create a web site and give a willing, unsuspecting audience misguided information—and it could cost you everything.

Where, then, can investors in Toronto turn for objective economic analysis, market research, support and mentorship? The best way to learn how to invest in stocks and invest in bonds is by taking investing courses in Toronto led by licensed industry professionals, such as our team at Learn-To-Trade.com.

How to Invest in Stocks/How to Invest in Bonds

When it comes to investing in stocks and bonds, there is a risk/reward trade-off. Stocks offer a tremendous opportunity for growth, but if you’re not careful, stocks can also put a serious dent in your investing portfolio.

Bonds, on the other hand, provide a much smaller, steady income stream at a defined date. Unlike stocks, which are exchanged among investors and based on fundamental and technical analysis, a bond is issued by either a company or government to fund their day-to-day operations or to refinance a project. When you buy a bond, you are loaning your money for a specific period of time to the issuer; in return, if the bond holder keeps it until maturity, they get back the loan plus interest payments (assuming the issuer doesn’t go out of business first). Because there is less of a risk with bonds, the reward is smaller.

In North America, the main stock market exchanges are the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the NASDAQ. Through these exchanges, investors can invest in companies based in the U.S. and Canada and in major international firms.

There are a lot of great companies that do not trade on the major U.S. stock market exchanges. Located in London, England, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) is the biggest stock market exchange in Europe and the third largest in the world after the NYSE and NASDAQ. For resource stocks, there is no better exchange than the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), with almost 60% of the world’s public mining companies being listed on the TSX.

I wanted to let you know that I had taken your course in the fall of 2013. I took your advice and used demo accounts for the last quarter of 2013. I switched to real money trading account in the Near Year, when I finally felt comfortable. Following the lessons taught to me by you (don’t jump on a moving train, peaks and valleys, EMA..etc), I wanted to let you know that I have been successful beyond my own expectations. Thank you very much – taking the Learn-to-Trade course was, by far, the best decision I made in my business career.

I took your course in 2008 and loved it. Since then I have been using what I learned at Learn-to-Trade to nicely supplement my pension income. Wanting a carefree type of trading, I have for the most part just sold options and made a monthly income which is a nice addition to my pension. I know I never would have made this kind of trading income without Learn-to-Trade. Thank you!

Hi George,

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing work on the tutorials especially Options trading.   Prior to joining, I had underestimated the quality of the trainings but they certainly far exceeded my expectations. Only I wish I’d found you 5-10 years ago!
