How it works?
New York Stock Exchange

The New York Stock Exchange uses two methods of trading: brokers and all-electronic. Regardless of the method of
exchange, all stock transactions are an auction.
Brokers actively trade stocks on the floor of the NYSE. Buyers and sellers auction securities for the highest
price. Brokers represent the entity buying the stock, whether it's for a retail brokerage company or institutional
investors such as pension funds. The brokers set the "bid" price, which is the price you're willing to pay for the stock.

When your stockbroker executes your order to sell, it is not completed until one of the dealers on the floor of the New
York Stock Exchange finds another broker to buy it. Before trading, brokers and dealers must get approved by the
NYSE and hold a trading license.

The dealers match up the brokers with the stock sellers, who submit an "ask" price. It's usually higher than the bid
price. In this way, it's like selling a home. The dealer is like the real estate agent, who puts the buyer and seller together.
Dealers get to pocket the difference between the ask and bid price, minus fees and expenses, for their work.

Most of the 10 billion transactions occur electronically. A computer acts as the dealer, matching up buyers and sellers.
Even the brokers and dealers get their information and trade electronically.

Philippine Stock Exchange

Buy or purchase stocks of a company who participates in the PSE. You will be assisted by a broker or a brokerage
firm for your trading. You can buy stocks in person or thru phone call or just buy one in a click via an accredited
online broker. You can go to the PSE or just open an account online to buy and sell stocks via an online broker.

This is self-explanatory but for the newbies and starters, some online brokers offer easy investment and trading
options for as low as P5000. That is very cool I must say because it is not too risky for beginners. You will start to
learn to invest, buy and sell stocks without losing or gaining so much.

You can trade higher amounts and higher stocks anyway as you learn the ways. Knowledge and strategy are powerful
to successful trading.
