Description

The main role of a stock exchange operator is to establish contact between buyer and supplier bids at the trading desk of a securities firm. Today, not all people trading on the market have large assets - there are also some people who have decided to invest their savings on the market. As part of their role, stock exchange operators perform tasks similar to the ones carried out by futures and options market experts: buying and selling assets generally related to the same stocks and index with which futures and options traders work. However, the investment strategies of these two professional profiles are associated with operations with differentiated characteristics. As such, stock operators buy or sell assets in the present, while futures and options traders acquire a commitment or option to buy or sell an asset in the future.

Tasks

  • Analyse the stock market through information available the work station (real-time transaction screens) and, on the basis of how this data changes, buy or sell certain stocks.
  • Contrast the data they view simultaneously on several screens, in order to make decisions about what to buy and sell.
  • Buy and sell stocks with the aim of making a profit through price variations (daily stock transactions) on American and European markets (Nasdaq, Nyse, Cme, Lse, Tsx, Euronext and FTSE).
  • Be proficient with the work station and know how to make use of functions at the right time in order to make an investment, in other words, to place limit orders, instant orders, all or none orders, etc.
  • Keep up-to-date with daily movement on the stock market (a facility for the exchange or trading of stocks or shares) and analyse this movement in order to develop indicators that help them to make gains on their daily investment transactions.
