Step 1 – Finding the right shares

Share investment is not something that can be done at random. It requires thorough research to determine the best shares offered on the JSE along with determining the timing into the market.

You cannot buy shares independently and you must do it through a registered stockbroker who will purchase these shares on your behalf. The easiest way to buy shares is to follow the guide provided by the JSE on finding the right broker, registering for the option to buy shares through your bank, or by applying for an account with SA Shares.

The next step is to make sure that you have the necessary information and training to understand the stock market and the process involved with buying shares.

Step 2 – Finding the right broker

Hundreds of brokers allow you to buy shares and finding the right one may seem like a tedious task. When you buy shares through your bank, you are automatically assigned with a trusted, regulated stockbroker and you need not have any contact with them, everything is done through your bank.

If you want to choose your broker, however, there are some things you must consider:

  • Only use a broker that has the necessary regulation with FSCA.
  • Know your own needs and objectives and look for a broker that is aligned with that.
  • Consider the costs involved and measure it against what you can afford.
  • Ensure that you thoroughly evaluate the broker with regards to trading platforms, costs, fees, deposit, and withdrawal methods, and so on.

Step 3 – Set up your account

Once you have decided on your broker, you can register an account with them and start trading your shares. At this point, you will understand the costs and fees involved and how much capital you need to start trading.

Make sure that you evaluate your trading plan with what your broker offers to ensure that you can achieve your objectives.
