Step 1: Find a stockbroker
Johnson Matthey is listed on the London Stock Exchange, which your broker must have access to.
Before choosing a broker, there are a number of features and fees to consider: brokerage or spread, what markets and the tradable assets they have access to, if you can buy fractional shares, and their foreign exchange fee charged when buying shares listed on overseas markets. Last but not least, it’s helpful to review the overall usability of their trading platform, particularly on mobile.
Step 2: Fund your account
You must have cleared funds available in your account before you can place an order. You can deposit funds with a bank transfer or debit card. Some brokers accept fund deposits from credit cards. PayPal may be accepted by your broker.
It’s worth noting that it may take some time for funds to be cleared into your account depending on the deposit method chosen.
Step 3: Decide how much to invest
You shouldn't invest more than you can afford to lose. Resist the fear of missing out on an opportunity to invest.
Step 4: Invest in shares or an ETF?
ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) give investors exposure to a collection of companies that share a common characteristic, such as being listed on the same stock exchange or operating within the same industry.
Johnson Matthey shares are iShares Core MSCI EAFE ETF (IEFA), iShares MSCI Global Impact ETF (SDG), Global X Autonomous & Electric Vehicles ETF (DRIV), and Schwab International Equity ETF (SCHF).
Step 5: Set up your order
The most basic sort of order (which is a market order) is used when you want to acquire a stock at the next available price.
Depending on the broker you use, it is possible to set up automated orders that are triggered by a certain event or price, or recurring orders. This is especially beneficial if you don't want to keep an eye on the markets all day.
Step 6: Place your order
Once you are satisfied that you have everything lined up, submit your order to buy.
