There are so many ways to invest in stocks. When choosing among individual stocks, mutual funds, index funds, ETFs, domestic or foreign. First you need to open a Demat account with any broker.
Individual stocks: If you’re after a specific company, you can buy a single share or a few shares as a way to dip your toe into the stock-trading waters. Building a diversified portfolio out of many individual stocks is possible, but it takes a significant investment.
Mutual funds or Exchange-traded funds: These mutual funds let you purchase small pieces of many different stocks in a single transaction. The upside of stock mutual funds is that they are inherently diversified, which lessens your risk.
