Online vs. offline share trading

How to open an online trading account

Select the brokerage first: Search online or ask your friends and acquaintances for reference. Ensure that the broker you finally choose is reputable, committed and take orders in a timely manner. In share trading, the time is one of the most important factors for becoming a successful trader. Even a few minutes can change the market price of the stock.

Compare brokerage rates: Correspond with at least two or three online share broking firms and collect their brokerage costs. Compare them and find out which one suits you the best.

Check the discount rates: There are many online brokerage firms that offer you discounts on the basis of a number of trades you conduct. But remember, it is not necessary to choose a company that offers you maximum discounts. Rather, opt for a company who offers better brokerage service than higher discount.

Speed and easy navigation: Visit multiple online share trading websites and check their speed, usability, navigation and information to ensure that you open an online share trading account on the best platform.

Fill up the form: Now finally when you pick a broking company after an extensive research and verification process, fill up the form and submit two documents for your identity proof and address proof.

Application verification: The company will then verify your documents and also the form.

Trading account details: On successful verification, the company will open your trading account and give you the account details.
