What is the Difference Between a Trading Halt and Suspension from Official Quotation?

The difference between a trading halt and suspenion of offical qoutation

Companies have to make announcements now and then. With the hustle (mostly) and bustle of the stock market, you may need more than the typical tapping on the glass to be heard. Companies have the option to temporarily suspend trades when they have an important announcement to make. This gives investors a breather to evaluate their trading options. A trading halt shares similarities with suspension of official quotation because both stops trading activities related to the company, but they do have a difference in relation to the sequence of events.

Technical Analysis – Smoke and Mirrors?

The pros and cons of Technical Analysis

There are various methods in navigating the stock market. Even though it can be very unpredictable there are tools that you can use to help you gain insight on a particular stock that grabs your interest. One of the main methods in evaluating stock is technical analysis. This is used by traders to analyse the supply and demand of stocks in the market to determine their trend.

Is 20% Annual Return Realistic?

Learn if a 20% annual return is realistic.

Market returns fluctuate like the tides. Consider the many factors that affect returns like timeframes, trading strategy, your particular portfolio, and social and economic upheavals. A stock may outperform 20 percent in a given year and maybe even 10 years, but this is the exception. Anybody can also get a one-year, one-time 20 percent return, but to expect the same rate year in and year out leans more toward the unrealistic.

Entering the Market: Timing

Everything about timing the market.

The market is a murky place, and sharks—also known as people who trade for a living—swim in the infested waters. Do not be the crustacean. Unless you pay someone to do it (and maybe not even then), no one can really tell you the exact time to enter the market, and you will likely get different opinions.

Dividend Eligibility: How Long do You Need to Own the Shares?

Dividen Eligibility

How long you want to own your shares will depend on what's your goal. If you bought a fully franked stock and want to receive the full dividend amount, you have to hold the stock for 45 days. This excludes the day you made the purchase and the day you sold the stock. More importantly the 45 day rule (plus 2 days) makes you eligible to receive franking credits, if your imputation credits entitlement totals more than $5000. The key is to own the shares in 45 days after the ex-dividend date. You will need 90 days for preference shares.
