Do you want to buy stocks through our investment platform? It is easier than you think. In this short instructional video, we show you how it works step by step.
When you start investing, there are several things to consider. A good starting point is determining what type of investor you are. What is your investment style? Will you be an active or passive investor?
If you are new to the world of investing, we recommend going through our Investor’s Academy, where you will find information about investing. Learn how investing works, which products you can invest in and which strategy suits you best. Lesson 1 helps you understand what kind of investor you are, and Lesson 6 focuses on choosing your first stock.
At DEGIRO, we offer "execution-only" services. This means that we do not manage your investments, nor do we provide investment advice. You have the power to place orders autonomously through our investment platform.Open an account
Suppose your portfolio consists entirely of shares of one company. Should this company go bankrupt or drop steeply in price, your entire investment portfolio would take a substantial loss. That is why spreading risk is of great importance. With a well-diversified portfolio, the profits of one company can make up for the losses of another. For more information on diversification (spreading risk), please refer to Lesson 8 in our Investor’s Academy.
Once you know which stocks you want to buy, the next step is to place the order. But how does that work? You can place different types of orders. These order types aim to make trading easier and more targeted. For more information on the various order types and how they work, please check out Lesson 7 in our Investor’s Academy.
Patience is a virtue, which is certainly the case for investors. Those who allow their investment to pay off for a long period of time can benefit from the return-on-return effect, also known as "compound interest". Here is how it works: if you reinvest the return received on an investment, that return can also yield a return over time. With the invested amount increasing, the impact of this effect will grow exponentially over time. You can find more information about long-term investing in Lesson 9 in our Investor’s Academy.
You can buy shares when the exchanges are open. We offer investing on over 50 exchanges worldwide. It is important to be aware that the opening hours of these exchanges may differ. For an overview of the opening hours of the exchanges available on our platform, please visit our opening hours page.
