Until recently, buying and selling stocks were done via a phone call to a stockbroker, who would execute the stock trade on your behalf. With the advancements in technology right now, almost all our activities have gone online and stock trading is no stranger. There are numerous ways to watch the stock market online and it is possible to trade stocks via your favourite stock broker’s website or stock trading app.
Some brokerage firms provide a good stock trading experience with a minimal charge and some companies such as Robinhood that is based in the US and operating in the UK have launched the mobile app before the website. Also, some services have come up with commission-free stock trading, which motivates you to invest.
