Find the best online broker for stock trading
An online broking service will allow you to create an online trading account, and it will give you access to the biggest international stock exchanges, including NASDAQ, Euronext, London Stock Exchange, and New York Stock Exchange.
Keep in mind that it’s usually more expensive to invest in overseas shares than it is to invest in domestic shares, so it’s important to be aware of all of the fees that you’ll be charged for every transaction. Online broking services are typically more affordable than full service brokers, as they won’t give you trading advice and will only charge you when you sell or buy. However, you should still watch out for currency conversion fees, internal transfer fees, and foreign security custody fees, as a few examples.
