Joining Sharebuilder


Sharebuilder is something you might like to try if you are interested in buying stock. It was a few years ago when I came across the site. I had been thinking about joining the site and getting involved for a long time, but I didn’t know anything about stock. I came across the site again, and I decided to give it a try. I was very afraid. If you watch the videos from the site, they make it sound so easy to get started. The first step that I knew that I had to take was to sign up. After that, I was able to browse around the site and see what it was I had to do. Before your account is approved, you will have to send in some information. The second step was to try buying stock. I was skeptical about it because I did not want to add my bank account. They have an option where you can send a check also. If you decided to use the express funding, you would have to submit your account and router number from your check. The express funding is good to use when you do not have cash available. I did not have cash available. Sharebuilder allows you to choose from options. First, you type in and find the symbol that you would like to buy stock from. I typed in something that I was familiar with like Wal-mart. Luckily, I was able to buy 1 share from them using the share calculator to find out how much the amount of cash I would need. The good thing about it is you do not have to make a decision right away.
