How To Invest In The Stock Market For Beginners

In the following, we will talk about the steps you need to complete if you want to get started with investing in the stock market.

1. Select Your Online Stockbroker

Selecting your online stock broker is the first step you have to take if you want to start your journey in investing in the stock market. Thanks to the evolution of technology, now it's easier than before to invest in the stock market. The single thing you need to do is to create a free account to one of the most popular websites, verify your account, and get started with your first deposit.

There are a lot of websites you can choose from but if you are a complete beginner I recommend the following apps: eToro, Binance, or Coinbase (mostly for crypto).

Etoro has a lot of stocks you can choose from also they have a virtual account where you can use up to $100,000 only for testing and understand how the application works.

Binance.com is another good app to use if you want to invest in the stock market, but this app can be a little difficult to understand in the beginning, but you will get used very fast. Binance is one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, also they have their own coin, named "Binance Coin".

2. Research the stocks you would like to buy

Once you decided on your online stockbroker and funded your account, it's time to choose in what stocks you will invest your money. A good strategy you can use in the beginning is to start your research with the companies that you already know from your experience as a consumer.

Once you’ve identified these companies, it’s time to do a little research. Start with the company’s annual report, specifically management’s annual letter to shareholders. The letter will give you a general narrative of what’s happening with the business and provide context for the numbers in the report. After you get all this information you can use the tools that are provided by your broker website, tools like SEC Fillings, conference call transcripts, and quarterly earnings updates.

3. Decide how many shares to buy

This is probably the easiest step in our list because you just need to decide how many shares of a certain company you would like to buy. There is no limit on how many shares you can buy, but you should be aware of the risks of using all your money on a certain company on the stock market. If you want to invest a big amount of money you probably should split the money into multiple companies because it's safer and also can be a lot more profitable in the long run.

That's being said, good luck with your investments and don't forget that you need to make a lot of research before investing a big amount of money in a certain company. Probably, now it's the best time to invest in cryptocurrencies (at the time when this article was written) because all the crypto market is down so you can make a nice profit if you have the money. I hope you enjoy our article on how to invest in the stock market for beginners and you found good tips to get started in this journey.
