In this step-by-step video, I describe how to buy stock in Etrade. Assuming you are new to the interface of the Etrade brokerage account, I walk you through every detail of buying stock through Etrade. This online brokerage firm is easy to use but doesn’t provide good customer support until you are at the “pro” level; hence this walkthrough http://damonverial.com/the-gap-method/
The steps for buying stock in Etrade follow:
-Choose your ticker
-Choose how many shares you want to buy
-Use a limit order
-Calculate the average between the bid and ask
-Place the order
The limit order is essential, because without it you will get the worst possible price. Once you get the hang of Etrade, you’ll realize all you need is an internet connection to become a full-time trader. New to investing? Subscribe to my channel.
