Congratulations! You have finally opened an online trading account. Chances are that your brokerage firm has already given you all the support information to get started. But there are too many things going on in your mind such as “Where do I begin?”, “How do I find the time to learn trading?”, and so on.
Don’t worry, here are 5 tips that can help you to make the most of your online trading account.
TIP-1 Use the trading platforms
Every reputed brokerage firm gives you access to a range of dedicated trading platforms for trading online or on the move. There are some financial service providers who have trading platforms for everyone, whether a client or not. The only difference is their clients get access to exclusive or advanced features.
The variety of trading platforms lets you login to a desktop client, online platform or mobile platform for gaining information about the market movements and other important data. Whether you are an android user or an iPhone user, you can access your online trading account on the move. These platforms come with a set of proprietary online trading tools too.

TIP-2 Understand the trading format
Your online trading account opens doors to a wealth of information related to stock market trading. Read the stock market trading guidelines, FAQs and other relevant literature that will be available in the knowledge section of your trading.
TIP-3 Explore the user interface
Among competitor firms, while the online trading account offers similar services, the user experience varies from one brokerage firm to another. Generally, trusted online brokerage service providers offer easy navigation features that will not intimidate the users.
You should explore the online trading user interface for features and functions that help you operate your online trading account. It is not necessary that you start trading immediately. But exploring the interface will prepare you and make you more comfortable for the time when you are ready to start trading.
TIP-4 Stay updated about the stock market
When you login to your online trading account, you will find the latest stock market news. If you are a busy person, just follow the short news updates while on the move or take a few minutes break to quickly scan through it. You will get a rough idea of the kind of news pieces that have an impact on the stock market. Whenever time permits, try to read the complete articles.
There are several websites dedicated to stock market news and resources. You can check www.moneycontrol.com for news related to the Indian stock market. Also, check for websites related to stock market strategies. YouTube is a great resource for learning trading strategies.
TIP-5 Follow companies
Once you have gained a fair understanding of the stock market, start tracking the performance of the companies you want to invest in. There are company trackers with graphs showing the performance of all listed companies that can be easily viewed using your online trading account. Study these data points before making any investments.
Additionally, you can find almost every possible detail about the listed companies online.
TIP-6 Learn from the experts
Online trading account owners have exclusive access to research reports with forecast data and tips by experts. These experts are the people who are well-versed with stock market sentiments. They have closely observed the stock market for years and can gauge the performance of a stock option. These experts can guide you towards the right stocks.
That’s not all, the online trading account can be used for trading in the commodity markets, currency exchange and so on. If you are keen to explore further, you can use your online trading account to explore those markets with the help of your brokerage firm.
TIP-7 Manage your account
You can get all your account related information at your fingertips with an online trading account. Be it linking your account for funds from your bank, checking your trading activity or managing account details, your account information section is what you need to know about. You will find yourself spending time in this section of your online trading account as you trade more and build your trading expertise.
