Think about and decide how long you would like to invest for. But don't rush into a long-term investment if you're a novice investor with little experience, as you'll have difficulty correctly evaluating the current state of your business, as well as correctly forecasting its future development.

Familiarise yourself with fundamental analysis, which is a method of determining future movements in a company's share price based on economic, political, social and other factors. As the world has been living with the Covid-19 pandemic for the past two years, the economy is not as stable as we would like it to be and therefore many investors are afraid to invest in long-term projects.

Private investors and large companies now prefer short-term financial investments. If you choose this type of investment you should pay attention to technical analysis which includes indicators, charts and more. With its help, you will be able to track several liquid securities. You can also build a proper investment portfolio by following the recommendations of technical analysis. The aim of any  securities' portfolio is to reduce risk through diversification.  If some stocks go down in value, others go up in value, and therefore the balance in your investment portfolio will reduce losses or prevent them from happening.

Fundamental analysis gives you a view of the market over a relatively long period, while technical analysis gives you an idea of its near-term trends. 

Today, the CFD trading is very popular among traders. This type of trading is suitable for those who do not have a large initial capital. CFD is a contract for difference which is made between two parties - a trader and a broker. The essence of this contract is that the positive difference between the opening and closing price of the financial instrument is paid by the seller to the buyer and the negative difference is paid by the buyer to the seller. It is mandatory to specify the time when the difference will be determined.

If you buy such a contract and the share price rises, you will receive the corresponding difference from the broker. Conversely, if the price falls, the difference will be deducted from your account.

If you do not have much experience but have a strong desire to trade shares, choosing CFDs is a good option!
