Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Pick a brokerage. Before you can invest in any company, you must first select a brokerage to execute your trades. Now that most brokers have moved away from a commission-based model, you can purchase BYSI shares free of charge — regardless of which broker you choose.

Define your strategy, then choose a brokerage that offers the necessary tools to carry out your investing strategy. If you feel like you need some practice before putting your hard-earned money to work, select a brokerage that offers paper trading

Finally, pay attention to any promotional offers from brokerages. You may end up with bonus funds to trade with, a free stock for you and your friends or numerous other potential benefits. 

  1. Decide how many shares you want. Now that you’ve selected a broker, you need to decide how many shares of BYSI you want to buy. Some factors to consider include your age, time horizon, risk tolerance and reasonable expectations for the future of the company. 

Investing more than a small percentage of your funds into one company is extremely risky. Before placing a buy order with your broker, you need to determine how much money you want to risk, when you will sell on the upside to take profits and when you will sell on the downside. One option is a stop-loss order to protect your funds. 

After looking at the chart and answering these important questions, you can find a favorable price point and purchase BYSI.

  1. Choose your order type. After determining how many shares of BYSI you want to buy, your job as an investor is not complete. You now need to decide which order type to use. 

The most basic order type is the market order, which will fill your order at the current market price. This order type is best used when you are buying a stock with low volatility and trying to do it instantly. 

If you want to better define your risk, you should use a limit order instead, which allows you to purchase shares at a set price or lower. When trading an extremely volatile stock like BeyondSpring, it may be beneficial to use a limit order because this prevents your buy order from being filled at a price point that results in being down in the stock from the very beginning.

  1. Execute your trade. Once you’ve determined the appropriate order type to use, all you need to do is submit your buy order to your broker and wait for your order to process. Once the order fills, your shares of BYSI should appear in your brokerage account.
