The simultaneous carrying out of an operation on the cash market and another on a derivatives market – forward, options, futures (on stocks or indices) – allows a series of strategies to be set up, both conventional or aggressive, depending on their greater or lesser degree of risk.

How to Invest In The Stock Market

There are basically two ways of investing in the stock market:

1) Individually – the interested party conveys his intention to a brokerage firm which will be the intermediary in the transactions. The list of member brokerage firms can be obtained at BOVESPA;

2) Jointly – interested parties purchase quotas from investment clubs or from stock funds. These forms of collective investment, managed by brokerage firms and other accredited institutions are associations of investors with a common objective: investment in a diversified stock portfolio.
