What is meant by Stock Broker and how they work?
Friends, whenever you hear about the stock market, you will always get to hear about the stock broker. And you must be wondering what is a stockbroker, what is a stock broker, what is its job in the stock market? So let us tell you in our post today what is the work of a stock broker in the stock market?
The work of a broker is very important in the stock market, the stockbroker acts as a link between the stock exchange and the investor. Without a broker, no investor can put his deal in the stock market. If you want to step into the stock market, you need a demat account and a trading account, and both these accounts can be opened by a stock broker. It is also the job of any stock broker to take orders for buy or sell by any investor to the stock exchange.
Let us understand this as an example, suppose friends have two investors and Babli. Bunty wants to buy 50 shares of xyz company for ₹ 100, and Bubbly wants to sell 50 shares of xyz company for ₹ 100. In such a situation, both Bunty and Bubbly should tell their stock broker through their mobile phone through their mobile platform, or through the website to their stock broker or order that I want to sell or buy shares of xyz company. On order, Bunty and Babli’s brokers will deliver the order to the stock exchange. After this, after getting the price of both of these on the stock exchange, the trade will be confirmed, and the shares of the company sold by Bubbly will now go to his demat account through Bunty’s broker, and whatever their price will be Bunty’s demat From account to broker will go to demat account of bubbly. So you must know what is the job of a broker. Apart from this, it is the job of the broker to make the demat account and trading account available to its customers.
Does the stock broker charge its service fee?
You must be wondering if the stock broker charges for all these deals? So yes stock broker charges you a fixed fee for every order which we call brokerage (brokerage). Friends, each stock broker has a different brokerage. It depends on your stock broker how much brokerage he takes.
