If you are going to start investing in financial markets, you have to do this through a good trading platform in order to succeed. There are an extremely large number of platforms on the market, which makes it difficult to know which one to choose. That is why we have created a guide to the best platforms to trade on in this article.

Trading and investing can be as exciting as reading the NFL Week 9 Odds, but it is important to remember that you are taking a big risk. Never trade or invest money you don’t have.

What should you consider when choosing a platform?

It is important that you find a trading platform that suits you and your investment profile. Therefore, review these five factors when you start choosing a platform.

  • Ease of use
  • Count of investment objects
  • Technical analysis tools
  • The platform is safe and regulated
  • Social platform

What are the advantages of a trading platform?

There are many advantages to using a trading platform when starting to trade. This is especially so when compared to a bank or a broker. Here are some of the benefits

  • Management fees are significantly lower: When compared to banks or brokers, trading platforms charge significantly lower management fees. This is essential as a trader, as you will complete many purchases and sales. With high commissions (fees for buying and selling) or spreads (the difference between the buying and selling price), large parts of the profit could be “lost”
  •  Purchases and sales are carried out faster: In order to be a good trader, one has to be able to carry out purchases and sales quickly. This is much more efficient through a trading platform.
  • Features and tools: Most professional traders use features and tools, such as technical analysis, to evaluate financial purchases and sales. Trading platforms usually have much better tools for this.

Trading, regardless of whether it is with shares or other financial instruments, is not suitable for investors who have never invested in financial markets before. It may be a good idea to have familiarised yourself with the markets by having made some investments in the past. Many people think that trading is an easy way to make money. However, this has proven to be incorrect, and most people lose during the attempt. It is therefore important to clarify that trading requires a lot of time, understanding of the markets, and knowledge of what causes the fluctuations in the rates.
