How to invest in the stock market for beginners?

What is the stock market?

The stock market refers to exchanges where the shares of public companies are bought and sold. Other financial securities are also traded in the stock market. The term is often used interchangeably with the term “stock exchange”, even though a stock market can be made up of multiple stock exchanges.

How do I invest in the stock market for the first time?

As a beginner investor, you should always seek professional guidance, as well as evaluate your personal circumstances and financial goals to determine whether investing in the stock market is right for you. 

One of the easiest and most convenient ways to start investing in the stock market is by opening an online brokerage account. Once you set up your investment account, you would need to fund it and carry out research into the different stocks available to buy. However, if you have a Xapo Bank account, you do not need a different account, as you can trade US stocks, manage your personal portfolio, and grow your wealth from one app.

If you prefer, you can also buy stocks through an offline stockbroker or directly from the company itself, though this is only possible if you get a Direct Stock Purchase Plan from the company.

Is Xapo Bank an investment bank?

Xapo Bank is an international crypto-enabled bank that gives members access to US Dollars and Bitcoin in one place: the Xapo Bank app. Members also have the ability to access the stock market and invest in blue chip U.S. listed companies (Adobe stocks, Tesla stocks and more…) with the flexibility to buy fractional shares if desired.
