To invest in shares you'll need a broker to buy and sell shares on the stock market.

XTB offers 3000+ instruments from 16 major exchanges all over the world including the US, UK and EU giving you the opportunity to choose between forex, indices, commodities, shares and ETFs.

  1. Open an account. This typically involves providing personal information and funding your account with money. Start your journey by creating an account with the award-winning xStation platform.

  2. Conduct research on companies and industries that interest you. Look at their financial statements, management team, growth potential, and industry trends.

  3. Once you've identified the shares you want to buy, you can place an order with XTB. You can choose to buy a set number of shares at the current market price, or set a limit order to buy shares at a specific price.

  4. Keep track of your shares and their performance over time. You may want to adjust your investment strategy or sell your shares if they're not performing as expected. You should always monitor your investments.

Remember that investing in shares involves risk, and you should never invest more than you can afford to lose. It's also important to diversify your portfolio by investing in a variety of instruments.
