Deciphering Cryptic Day Trading Stock Symbol

By: Abhishek Agarwal

Ticking symbols refer to the letter system which are representative of the stocks. They are needed to monitor and find security info. It is useful if you are offering a quote because you might be asked to enter a symbol for the transaction. These numbers and letters contain vital security information

The tick symbol of a mutual fund is composed of five letters that end with an "X". A prime example is FMAGX which represents Fidelity Magellan fund and the VFINX represents Vanguard's Index Five Hundred fund. If this acts as the funds on the money market, three letters ending with an 'X' are used instead..

Stock symbols which are listed on the NYSE or AMEX exchanges consist of three bills of exchange, while the Nasdaq uses four letters. But 5 letters are made use of in the case of Nasdaq when the stock contains more than 1 issue of a common stock, where the fifth letter would have a defined meaning.

The 5th letterticker symbols and what they mean.

A for Class A, B for Class B, C for Class C except for the issuer of qualification, the new edition by D, E on deposits SEC is delinquent, F denotes foreign, the first of convertible bonds G, H second convertible bond , I third convertible bonds, J denotes voting, K denotes Nonvoting , various situations L.

M preferred shares of the fourth class, N the preferred shares of the third class, O on preferred shares of the second class, P denotes preferred shares of the first class, the bankruptcy proceedings Q, R designates rights, S shares of beneficial interest,T denotes rights or warrants, mutual fund X, Y denotes ADR also known as American Depository Receipt, with Z for various miscellany situations.

Some stock symbols seem funny to some of us. It can be confusing when you get these symbols from your exchange.

Some of these are - AFL.BO invest a football locker room, CHIC is a trends stock, and CRZY is a title which is very volatile, CTCO.NS your money is being sought by the city of thugs , GEEK do something to oppose CHIC Stock, DABU.NS Saturday night lives must be avoided or forgotten, BNCO.NS honest focuses on the management of a company by a person.

EMCO.NS more disadvantages on a identity is moving, FUN investing stocks is both fun and play, FUSEX explanation is not necessary, GASEX mutual fund which is fighting flatulent, GODD people investing directly on future sins, suggests careful HIT because a hit decisions could be held in inventory, HUMP forget pump and dumping of stocks regimes, ICSEX speech by saying that it is lot better to see people dead or make love in Alaska, investor or IMAN MAN with a skewed sex, INSEX fund a lot of movement.

LMNE short of a title, because it could go wrong, LUV expression of what's love got to do with it, NEB. As likes stocks, stocks MORE.BO make you sweat, MRB.SN company is need for a BS_er what is good, MRFIX adding portfolio of the fund during breaks, PNSEX mutual funds strange golden shower, RATL toy manufacturer baby SRRY apologies to the stocks invested, URI multiple personalities stock WMNXX money market funds favorite by playboys and WSob stocks are becoming hot like sushi.

A little research will tell you what these symbols really mean. . Be aware, at times these symbols may be modified and changed so do remain up to date.
