The role of brokers in trading stocks cannot be overemphasized as the growth of your income depends directly or indirectly on them. Stockbrokers are specially trained individuals whose concerns are to buy and sell shares for investors at a fixed commission. The statutory commission for stock broking firm is below four per cent on both sides of buying and selling. A regular trader with a volume can negotiate lower to boost the returns and enhance funds management. This commission is regulated by the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Stock broking firms have a fixed rate and what accrues to them on any transaction. The factors below would help you choose a reliable stockbroker:

Make sure that the stockbroker or the stock broking firm is fully registered and licensed by the NSE and SEC to carry out the business of stock trading. A registered stock broking firm will usually be a member of the exchange and with the approval of SEC. Whenever you enter into any stock broking firm, at its reception, you will see the certificates of registration and licensee displayed on the wall. But when this is not displayed on the wall, please have a rethink and walk out of that place. While this is important at the first instance, is that you want to deal with the right people. If the stock broking firm is licensed it suggest that the company has met the entire requirements.

The objective of stock trading and investing is to make money. You need to be in a house where the people are active and informed through their research-based analysis that guides and directs their decisions on what to do in the market at any time. A stock broking firm knows how to combine different forms of analyses to take advantage of the market before offering a profitable investment advice to their clients. Also, the level of transactions in terms of volume and value to ascertain how forceful the firm is in the market is equally important.

Look for a house that believes in good relationship that drives business, even if it means consulting professionals in the market for a guide to go ahead; a situation where you can have a one-on-one discussion with your broker regardless of the amount you have at that moment. You should feel at ease with your stockbroker since you will be providing personal information about your finances and investment goals. The stockbroker should listen to your expectations and understand your needs. Based on the information provided, the stockbroker can develop an investment strategy tailored to an investor’s needs. Make sure you understand the investments recommended to you for purchase. A good stockbroker takes time to explain how any security purchased can fit your investment goals.

How to preserve money in stocks
It is true that your hard-earned income is invested in the stock market and it becomes necessary for you at any given point to protect this money and grow it in the same market by investing knowledgeably. It happens that one Monday afternoon, a friend of mine called to say that his broker has always made him to lose money by buying at the highest price and selling for him at the lowest price. This had always made him to lose money. It is true that brokers would not buy stocks for their clients without a mandate or instruction from the buyer. That means my friend also has his own faults, either by giving instruction to buy stocks for him when prices have gone up, anticipating that they would go higher but go down or reverse down due to profit taking. This may result in selling at a lower price, thus making the buyer to lose money. To avoid this, always ensure you enter and exit a position fairly by buying into a weak market and selling in a strong market as buying or selling pressure will always affect the market price of any stock.
Confidence: Your confidence in the market and the specific stock you are buying is very important, suggesting that you should understand the companies you are putting your money -their business model and other things that are necessary to know that the company is strong. Confidence is just as important in investing as it is in any other aspect of life, whether it is sports, business or a relationship etc. Use numbers to help decide when to buy or sell, and also your learning how to use your instinct in all these will go a long way to help you protect your money. The more confident you are in your decisions, the more likely you will be correct.
Factors for the market
Here, what are the factors that support the market at that particular time, listen to what’s going on around you. Consciously or subconsciously you cannot avoid soaking in external stimuli.

Trade stocks you understand
Finally, stick to a proven strategy and trade a handful of stocks that you’re familiar with. So often, I see people with 20 – 30 positions in their portfolios. What’s the point? If you’re that worried about diversification, buy bond. Too much work goes into the management of a portfolio of that size. Stick to five – eight stocks that you are very familiar with and that have potential of rallying. Then, you know exactly where the support and resistance points are, when earnings will be announced, what products are in the pipelines and much more pertinent information that will drive price.
