How to Buy Apple Shares
Buy and sell CFDs on Apple shares USA without commission when you open an account with one of the following brokers.
Understand how to buy or sell Apple stocks with this step-by-step guide.
Step 1: Get started
Before you place your first trade, you'll need to decide what it is that you are buying. You can either buy shares outright, in which case you'll become a registered shareholder, or simply profit from changes in Apple's share price through instruments known as CFDs (or Contracts for Difference). In this article, we discuss the difference between stocks and CFDs in detail.
CFDs are popular with investors like you because they allow you to trade on margin. You could buy a CFD on Apple's stock currently valued around $320 with a low US$ 100 deposit through AvaTrade.com by borrowing the difference. Leverage can increase your profits because you stand to benefit from changes in the price of the share, even though you deposited a fraction of the share price.
Most CFD brokers charge no commission, helping you save substantial amounts of money upfront. Instead, they earn a living through the bid-ask spread: the difference between the price at which you can buy and sell securities from them. Some brokers, such as FxPro, charge a low fixed spread at all times, whilst others, such as AvaTrade, charge a variable spread based on market conditions.
Step 2: Open an account online
Compare brokers through our service to find an account that meets your requirements. You should consider their trading conditions - including spreads, leverage and execution methods - as well as security of funds. If you are in a hurry to trade, we suggest funding your account through a debit card, credit card or an e-wallet (such as PayPal, Skrill or NETELLER). Bank wire transfers can be particularly slow and costly to complete. Importantly, the funding method you choose should be in your own name for compliance purposes.
Step 3: Place your first trade
Placing your first trade may seem daunting, but it need not be. All brokers in our panel allow you to trade directly from their website or a smartphone app. Click a button to 'buy' and another to 'sell' (or 'short') Apple shares directly from the charts. Nowadays, you no longer need to pick up the phone to trade through a dealing desk. Visit AvaTrade.com and FxPro.com to start trading.
