A Beginner's Guide Online Trading
So you want to buy or trade stock?
If you are online, the first thing you need to do is check online brokers such as TD Waterhouse or e-commerce. Opening an account is usually free, and once an account is opened, you can deposit funds into your account for trading.
What type of broker?
The cheapest is to execute only brokers. This basically means that you do not have any advice when to buy or sell stocks / deals. Their job is to provide quotations and fill in orders.
