How to buy brokerage stocks

Sign up with an online broker or platform to invest in one or more of these brokerage stocks.

  1. Compare share trading platforms. Use our comparison table to narrow down top brokers by fees and bonuses.
  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. You’ll need personal and financial details, like your contact and bank information.
  3. Search for the stock you're interested in. Find the stock by name or ticker symbol, like IBKR or JPM.
  4. Decide on how many to buy. Some brokers will allow you to purchase fractional shares, while others require you to purchase whole shares.
  5. Choose an order type. Invest in the brokerage stocks now with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until the stock reaches your desired price.
  6. Buy the stock. Tap or click the Buy button on your brokerage account. Once you’ve invested in the investing industry, track how your stock performs to decide when it’s time to sell.

Bottom line

While it’s possible to turn a profit investing in brokerage stocks, keep in mind that — like any investment — brokerage stocks are not immune to risk. These stocks are subject to fluctuating conditions — both in the market and in the investing industry, so carefully vet your picks before you invest. And if you’re new to investing, or if it’s been awhile since you’ve taken a critical look at your investing accounts, compare brokers to make sure you’re getting the best features in your trading account.
