In the past, it was necessary to go through a stock broker to carry out stock market transactions, which could cause a lot of inconvenience. Today with online brokerage sites, called online trading or brokers, there is no longer any need for an intermediary, the investor trades directly. Thus, the main interest of online trading is to be able to speculate directly, from your computer, tablet or a secure mobile application on assets, values present on the financial markets.
The second interest of online trading is obviously to earn money either by speculating (short-term buying and selling of securities for example, also called day trading), or by investing in the medium-long term, by buying in a downward trend. and reselling during a bull run (uptrend) like what is happening right now with a surge in the opening of Bitcoin portfolios (wholecoiners). Investors take advantage of the drop in this crypto-asset to buy by betting on a rise in the coming months.
