Sorry Fresh Newbie here - Buying Shares

Guest Davidosantos


Guest Davidosantos

Probably a very stupid question (first time trading) I wanted to buy 2 shares in a company (stock price 350) I'm assuming this ends up being £700 total right? When I go to buy the shares on Quote, it says 'minimum consideration is £90'. Am I missing something here?

Stock in the uk? It’s probably based in pence so 350 means £3.50. You should have the option to select the amount of money you want to invest rather than the number of shares to buy and it’ll work out the most you can for that set amount.

Wow! As you can see, first time buyer with a real dumb question - that makes sense now - thanks for that.

So for US companies like Apple, it has its share price at 189 - is this $189.00 per share? Or cents?

So American shares are actually quoted in USD. And European shares are in EUR. However you can sometimes get UK shares listed in EUR or USD as well and also listed in pounds rather than Pence so It’s a little hard to get to grips with.


You can always use the ‘get quote’ button to give an indication without actually accepting the deal to get an understand if you don’t know. Also check google finance at the top it says if it’s GBP or GBp (£ Vs p) or in any other currency :)

    • Insightful write up. Personally, I use top down analysis to mark my pivot points and i prefer to call them zones. As seen from my ETH chart below, i have been swinging the bullish ride with my top down analysis. 
    • One exchange that checks the box interms of my own requirement is bitgetglobal. The exchange is reputable for been compliant with regulations globally, its copy trading is the largest with over 100k elite traders and 540k followers, its trading fees is amongst the lowest in the industry. The one area i feel they need to improve on is their P2P. This area is lagging compared to that of Binance and Bybit.
    • Here's the next set of TIME CYCLES - I've had these dates on my charts since 2015 ish Please note this is just to show you that the markets are not random and we can TIME them - the AIM of this thread is to SHOW you that dates calculated years in advance can be significant These Time Cycles are not all of them, just the ones I wanted to show you, which are the INTERNAL cycles of a bigger Time Cycle - some will hit and some won't - REMEMBER, lots of active cycles are ALL operating at the same time Notice that there's not a TC for the 2022 high - the reason is that there was one, it's just not part of this series of TC's I'm showing you - Then when we look backwards in 2034, you'll be able to see market price action around the dates and you will KNOW these are not random dates thrown on a chart in the hope of hitting - because If you are ignore the latter dates (not yet shown) in the cycle, then you will come a cropper and when Investments are concerned that will mean LOSING lots of your money I'm still using the screenshot taken in Oct 2020 - Once we complete 2025, I'll update the chart with price data and take a screen shot from then on for the next cycles The THICK BLACK line is the mid-point of the cycle, which in the grand scheme of things "should / is expected to be" a significant LOW point when viewed back in time from 2034! - It WILL NOT be a major low, so don't expect a humungous price crash to it, it will NOT be how you are imagining it in your head right now Notice that most of those cycles are "LINKED" that's because they are the same cycle which repeats THT
