How To Invest In Stocks?

Before investing in stocks, it is important to visit the BM&FBovespa website, on the Educational/For Beginners section where educational content is available for those who want to learn to better deal with their money, organize their personal finances and start investing in the Stock Market.

Access by clicking here "How to Invest in the stock market in 4 steps".

Once the decision to invest in stocks is taken, the next step is to look for a brokerage firm. Evaluate the brokerage firm that suits you and the way you manage your money. You can evaluate, for example, the services it offers to better understand if they match the way you handle your investments. Do you intend to invest through the internet? Or would you prefer a telephone contact? If you are used to invest through the internet, for example, ask the brokerage firm if it has the option to negotiate online (the name of this service is home broker) and if you can learn more about the system before opening an account.

Now that you know how to choose your brokerage firm, click here at Search Brokerages registered with the BM&F Bovespa to select those you would like to call and get more information from. A list of the services offered, as well as the minimum investment accepted by the brokerage firm will also be available.

Important:

  • Make sure to analyze the global and national economic environment before buying shares. Inflation, interest rates, GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth and other economic indicators can improve or worsen the expectations for the growth and profits of certain companies, as well as the price of their shares.
  • Analyze through newspapers and the media in general the perspectives of the business sector in which you want to invest, given the economic situation.
  • Find out information about the financial health of the company you want to invest. Get its share historical price.
  • Make simulations. There are investment simulators that can give you an idea of how the market works before investing your money in the Stock Exchange. Use the simulators on the websites of some online brokerage firm.
  • Do not invest if you do not like to take risks. Share prices may vary from gains to high losses on the Stock Exchange.
