How to open Trading Account

A Complete Guide on How to Open Trading Account

You cannot trade in the stock market with a Demat account. Yes, a Demat account merely stores your assets. The actual buying and selling of assets (shares in this case) takes place in a trading account. In essence, Demat, trading, and bank account are all interlinked and crucial for you to execute a successful trade. When you buy shares, money is first transferred from your bank account to your trading account. Once the transaction goes through, the shares are credited to your Demat account. This is why opening a trading account is a must if you want to trade in the stock market.

However, before you open a trading account, you must assess factors such as speed and reliability of trading platforms, brokerage and annual maintenance fees and the broker’s credibility. m.Stock stands tall on all these parameters with a legacy of serving millions of customers in 15+ countries for over 25 years.
