Stocks, bonds, and options: a beginner's guide to the stock market

Updated: Jun 21, 2020

Not sure what the difference is between stocks, bonds and options?


Here is a very quick and concise explanation.


Stocks - are pieces of a company available for any investor to purchase. An investor who owns stocks (or shares as we sometimes call it) becomes a part owner of that company.


Bonds - are issued generally by government and banks - and have yields attached to them with a term. They are similar to fixed deposits that you get at the bank.


Options & Derivatives - are very complex instruments. They carry greater risk and are leveraged - meaning you can make or lose a lot of money quickly!
