Once you have opened an Investment Account and accessed your online trading platform, you can place an order in a few different ways.
If you know the name, ticker or ISIN of the security, you can access the “Place an order” screen from your dashboard by:
- Clicking on ‘Trade’ and selecting ‘Place an order’
- Clicking on ‘My Investments’, selecting ‘Overview’ and click on the button ‘Invest’
You can also place orders through the search tools. This helps you search for investments and enables you to place orders, by clicking on the “Place Order” button located next to each security. The search tools can be accessed directly from the “Trade” menu or by clicking on ‘Browse products’ and selecting ‘Explore investment products’, where you can choose any one of the investment categories. You can also buy or sell securities that you already hold by clicking on ‘My investments’, selecting ‘Overview’, clicking on a security and choosing whether you would like to Buy or Sell the security from your portfolio.
