Online Trading - An Overview

Online trading is the execution of buying and selling orders over the internet using your PC or your laptop. You can also execute these orders by downloading a trading app on to your smart phones. For online trading, you first require an online trading account and you need to go through the basic KYC process before you can place buy and sell orders on the internet. In fact, online trading makes trading in equity much simpler, quicker and efficient!

What are the advantages of online trading?

  • Online trading gives a lot more control over the trade to the customer. You can place the order online, monitor the order online and also close out the order online. The profits and losses are automatically adjusted to your trading account.
  • Trading tips and trading research can be disseminated through your online trading account itself so that you do not need to access multiple sources for your research and execution. They can all happen under a single platform itself.
  • The online trading definition is all about transparency. You define the price you want to trade and you can see the execution in front of your own eyes. Also your demat account and your online portfolio will get updated automatically.
  • Online equity trading gives you the added advantage of a better price for execution. Most brokers will give you a lower brokerage cost for online trading. That means; you get added control over your trades at a much lower cost.
  • Quite often, online trading becomes a seamless platform for the customer. For example, the trader can read the research, take a decision by comparing stocks with screeners and directly execute the trade with a few clicks. That makes things a lot simpler.

Some precautions required while trading online…

As any prudent investor or trader, you need to take some basic precautions while trading online. Here are a few of them:

  • Use dual authentication for your trading account and do not leave your trading account unattended and logged in while you are off your seat. Make it a point to log out of your session when you are not there on the seat.
  • Ensure that your computer is equipped with an anti-virus protection as well as an anti-malware protection and get it updated regularly. If you allow your PC or laptop to be hacked, then you could lose precious trade data to hackers.
  • Make it a point to change your trading password every 15 days. This will ensure that the chances of your account being hacked into are almost zero. Additionally, don’t set your password as obvious codes like your name, date of birth or marriage anniversary. Use complex characters to make your password difficult to figure out.
  • Never access your online trading account from a cyber café or even from a public Wi-Fi system. These are normally not secure connections and you risk your account being hacked. Always use only your personal computer and do not share the computer with anyone else.
  • If you find that the computer has slowed down or is opening multiple windows unnecessarily just shut your system and don’t use it for trading unless you have got the help of a hardware expert and got the problem resolved. Your system could have been compromised.

Online trading is an extremely simple and efficient way of accessing your trading account. Above all, you are not constrained by space and time. You can place the orders at the time and place of your choice. It is this flexibility that makes online trading extremely valuable to customers.
