Ways to start your own online trading portfolio:

The following are the ways to start an online trading portfolio:

Step 1:

  • First, you will have to open a trading-cum-Demat account with your broker so as to enable internet trading.
  • You will then have to give the Power of Attorney to the broker so that your Demat account will automatically be debited or credited when you trade shares.

Step 2:

Once you open a trading account, you will have to activate it with the allocated username and password.

Step 3:

  • For this account, you will have two-factor authentication where you will have to change the allocated password first.
  • This two-level authentication will include a password and a secondary authentication that could be a randomly generated alpha-numeric code, an OTP, or a combination of passwords.

Step 4:

  • After that, you will have to fund your trading account via any payment mode.
  • Once your account gets credited with money, your account will be ready to take the trade.

Step 5:

  • Once you start trading, it will be reflected in your order book.
  • You can also modify or cancel the order till it shows a pending status.
  • But if the order is finalized, then you cannot cancel or modify it.

Step 6:

You can also place a limit order if you wish to automate the process of buying or selling the shares once they reach a certain mark.

Step 7:

  • After you trade, you will have to cross-check the trade, transaction amount, and the price.
  • There are chances that due to internet failure, your desired order cannot be placed.
  • If that happens, then you can directly ask your broker to trade on your behalf.

Step 8:

  • The online trade process will charge you with fees, but they are comparatively lower than the offline way of trading.
  • Apart from the statutory charges, there are other hidden charges as well.
