In today's world being rich is not a big deal. But to invest and multiply that revenue is the main obstacle in today's world. There are several ways by which one can grow their wealth but the most effective way is stocks and real estate. Real estate is normal as we know, but what we don't know is the magic of stocks. To understand it assume that you own a business and it is a settled business. Now you want to grow it (as everyone wants to grow) you need money, and you don't have enough money to grow so what you do is list your company in the stock exchange where investors will give you money in exchange for some percentage of your business which is stocks.
In all this, the most profitable person is an investor who only invests in the business or company and gets profit. But one should invest in potential businesses and companies. In India, the number of people investing in stocks is very less due to misunderstanding and not having proper knowledge of investing. In the US almost 50% of people invest in stocks which makes the economy stronger. Although people want to invest every one cannot afford to get knowledge of the stock market. Here comes a broker who invests your money in the market and takes a percentage for it. The broker is a skilled person or firm which analyzes, researches, and chooses the best stocks to invest in.
We cannot directly invest in the stock market we would need a broker through which we will buy stocks. Here is the list of some best brokers which help you to invest with minimal charges.
