Should I invest in stocks through a bank or an app trading platform?
7 replies 252 views
I understand the very basics of stock markets and have used the 212 app before. I'm thinking of investing a bit larger than I have previously, I've just tinkered with small amounts before. I enjoy picking companies myself in the 212 app , but I worry that I'll forget about the account for ages and suddenly discover they removed my funds because I didnt verify or respond or some b/s (etoro were a week away from removing my funds because they had asked me to verify my account a SECOND time after it had already been verified once!!!). Should I just buy stocks through a bank or am I being overly cynical of just using an app and having a bit more fun picking what I want to invest in ? Pros and cons of each?
