5-Step Guide to Investing in Netflix
1. Chose a broker
First, you'll need to open a trading account with an online broker that allows you to trade US stocks. All brokers featured in this guide allow you to invest in US stocks, including Netflix. Their fees may vary, so take time to compare their trading conditions. You may also be subject to foreign exchange fees as you are buying Netflix stock in US dollars.
2. Open an account
Once you've chosen a broker, you will need to open your account. This process usually involves providing some personal information, such as your name, address, and date of birth. You'll need to provide proof of identity and a recent proof of address in the form of a bank statement or utility bill. Most brokers will verify your account in 24 hours.
3. Fund your account
Once your account is open, you will need to fund it before you can trade. You can do this by linking your bank account or depositing funds using a credit card, debit card or an online wallet. Some brokers may also accept Bitcoin, Tether and other crypto-currency payments.
4. Search for Netflix stock
Once your account is funded, search for the Netflix stock (NFLX) through your broker's trading platform. You can do this by entering the ticker symbol in the platform's search bar. The ticker symbol uniquely identifies a financial instrument. Some companies have more than one ticker, but Netflix only has one.
5. Place a buy order
Once you've found Netflix stock, place a buy order. Your platform may allow you to chose between a market order or a limit order. A market order instructs your broker to buy a certain number of shares at any market price. Instead, we suggest using a limit to place a cap on the share price you're willing to pay.
Buying shares is a risky investment. The stock price can go up or down, and you could lose money. You'll be exposed to factors that affect Netflix and the broader stock market. That's why you should only invest money that you can genuinely afford to lose.
