NFTs provide artificial scarcity in a market where the assets can be perfectly duplicated. Consider an original oil painting. It is virtually impossible to perfectly duplicate one, down to the brush strokes and amount and type of paint used at each point. As such, it's easy* to tell who owns the original and who owns a mere "reproduction". A ...

Hence to even recover what I have invested it takes me 4 Years This is a critical flaw in your reasoning. You are treating the purchase of stock as a "cost" that you have to recover. But if you spend $1,000 on 100 shares of stock and get $10 in dividends, you have $10 in cash and still have 100 shares. What are those shares worth? If the company ...

Typically a company issues options on itself in order to serve as an employee incentive. For a very low cost, they can entice employees to work long hours at below market pay in order to participate in the rise of the company's value. Typically these options expire after ten years, not three. An exchange may issue options on a security for one reason only: ...

They make money by selling options (covered calls). They sell those "in the money" which means at prices lower than the current price. This means that one gets money immediately but if the prices go up the stock has to be sold at a price below market value. Therefore, this is not a "normal" ETF on the NASDAQ 100 that will rise when the ...

the current SEC regime is "activist." You have to know what topic specifically they are talking about. The regime means the top leadership of the SEC. That would mean the top few positions within the organization. In the case of the SEC they are lead by a small 5 member commission. The term activist is topic specific. They could be pro-enforcement,...

On US stock exchanges, odd lots do not affect the price or the volume size of the NBBO quote. So if you order was for less than 100 shares, you'd see no change in the quote. If you buy limit order was equal to or greater than the ask price then you should have gotten a fill. However, if it was less than the ask, you could see trades occurring at a lower ...

The idea is! I just don't understand how stock prices go up and down. I understand that during IPO, company would get all the money that got collected selling the IPO stocks and then that is it! Once the stocks are listed on secondary market whatever transaction is happening will be between Buyer and Seller and of course the stock broker who collects the ...

Yield rises in opposition to the price of the security, so in this case the simple answer is that there's either soft demand for 10-year treasuries or there's enough selling volume to outstrip demand, hence the price of the bond continues to fall and drives up the yield. The interest rate paid on a bond is called the "coupon" rate, and it is a ...

Another assumption would be that every order will be executed on market price. The market price is the price at which orders are executed. It looks like I've simply stated the same thing the other way round, but the difference is important. If you buy a share for $10, then the market price must be $10. If, an hour later, somebody pays $11 for one share, ...

Yahoo! Finance uses Exchange Suffixes to specify single name equity quotes by exchange. I found that list of suffixes here: Exchanges and Data Providers on Yahoo Finance The London Stock Exchange (or as you termed, UK Exchange) suffix is .L so 88E.L would be the ticker used to get the 88 Energy Limited equity quote from the London Stock Exchange. 88 Energy ...

Can buyers also attempt to monetize their NFT by licensing it out (like an icon or logo)? No, they cannot. Buying an NFT does not transfer the copyright to the underlying work, and the copyright is what you need to own to license or otherwise restrict the use of the work. In fact, the underlying work is typically hosted at a public URL that anyone, not ...

But stocks are backed by companies, and the stocks themselves pay dividends to their owners. From what I understand this is not the case with NFTs. This means the only goal with NFTs is resell what you purchase to pocket the difference. Not all stocks pay dividends. Almost all investors expect to sell their shares for more than they paid for them. The ...

Putting it very simple, the price for a stock is mostly affected by the demand. Actually no. The price is determined by supply and demand. So a high demand is no issue as long as supply is also high. For ETFs, there is a mechanism called savings plan. At the start of every month, thousands of people automatically make a small investment into an ETF, thus ...

Illiquid stocks often do not trade for long periods of time during the day. If that's the case here then Yahoo is accurately reporting the trading pattern. If not, then it's bad data.
