Well this is such a vast topic that it needs lots and lots of pages to exactly explain what all these things mean which you have asked . But still just a little bit to get you started and so that you can understand the basic concept of how to go about it. Stock market Trading has to be done on the listed Stock market Exchanges of your own country and other countries where people can trade from other countries as well . Now the technology has enabled the use of online trading rather than the Floor trading as in the earlier days was done. You can buy any stock and sell any stock and it doesn’t take much to get started. All you need is a brokerage account. Brokers are the agencies which deal in the selling/buying of shares . They provide you the opportunity to traded in stocks through them on the listed stock exchanges. Once you have setup a brokerage account you then need to research different companies and then buy stock in the ones that you feel will go up because they are good sound companies.This needs lot of information and hard work. You can buy and sell your stocks from your home computer anytime that the stock market is open. For more information you can checkout www.investopedia.com which is a really good source for knowledge on Stock markets and technical things .

@ keishmhe, you are most welcome. Actually your first task will be to find which brokers are engaged in giving you the opportunity to trade in stocks and scrips in your Country's Stock Exchange . The best broker should be chosen so that the commission rates and contract rates are all good to handle. You should join Forums related to Stock Trading for your country . This is a must because most of the knowledge about Brokers and the rates of Taxes and every other minute details are discussed at such forums. All the best for your goals and aims .
