Trading in stocks is when you invest funds so that it is put to use for productive projects such as growth or expansion. Once a tool for the rich, the stock market has now turned into the vehicle of choice for growing wealth for many segments of the population.

There’s also the dwindling issuance of bearer share which is equity security wholly owned by whoever holds the physical stock certificate.

Simply create a trading account, deposit funds in it, sign in to the application, and you are ready to start trading.
