Trading Basics from the SEC

The SEC released an interesting item today.  It’s a two and a half page "bulletin" entitled Investor Bulletin: Trading Basics. Ironically, anyone who knows enough about the stock market to know about the investor education materials offered by the SEC probably already knows everything included in the PDF file.

By the way, there are numerous investor education pieces available at the SEC website. Just search your topic and add site:sec.gov to the end of your search to limit results to those that are on the official U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission website.
