Step 2 - Choose the shares you want to buy
Preferably by the shares of companies you understand.
If you don't invest in a company you understand, it is akin to gambling just with less excitement.
If you understand banking buy banks, if you understand farming buy agriculture shares e.t.c.

Step 3 - Send funds to invest
Decide how many shares you want to invest.
Please note you can't buy less than 100 shares, and also factor in at last 2-3% for commissions and trading account fees.
Once you know how much money you want to invest, send it to the broker.
Funds to invest can be sent to the brokers by MTN Money or bank transfer.
