Hi. I'm a total beginner on stock trading or stock exchange or whatever it is. I'm planning to invest money to it. I'm starting to read some of the books and articles about it. But I'm kinda confuse if trading stocks using apps on phone wo

Answers:

nah

oh totally

it is your money if you want to invest in other countries that is up to you, the point is many of the money managers already invest in foreign stocks, it has been done all the time

I invested in foreign companies via an "Emerging Market Fund" from Vanguard

A person who does not know a lot about stocks should not be trading stocks and should not even be buying individual stocks. You are going to lose your money. If you want to invest for retirement, buy a mutual fund with good long term results (3, 5, and 10 years). Study them at Morningstar.com.

you cant just "trade stocks" - you have to trade via a "stock broker", and that would be in your own country

Depends on the broker if they will let you trade on foreign stock exchanges in their currency but very unlikely

But they will let you trade in foreign companies quoted on your local stock exchange, and that would be in your local currency

(for you that would probably be the new york stock exchange (NYSE)

but since you are around 15 you cannot trade at all, not until you are 18

(This could actually be a very big benefit for you
you have 3 years to learn more about stock trading and can do it virtually while building up your savings until you can do it for real
think there are some sites that will let you do virtual trading - its the same as real trading except you aint investing real money so cant profit or lose any

If not then it dont take much to set up a spreadsheet and do it yourself
All you gotta do is look up the actual buying/selling prices for the stock you wanna buy/sell + the number you are gonna buy/sell and enter them of the spreadsheet to calculate how much they cost you or how much they sold for
Then just add in the trading costs and you can see how much profit/loss you made

Hope so I have a bunch, both ADRs and foreign ordinaries. That said start with domestic stocks, there are whole levels of risk you need to familiarize yourself with before buying foreign companies... currency exchange, varying accounting rules, etc.

There is a difference between what stock exchange a company trades on and what country(countries) they do business with.

The NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) hosts companies from not just the USA, but also Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia/Pacific and Canada.

If you are a beginner, you might want to consider a mutual fund or ETF as a core/first holding so that you are diversified without having to invest a ton of money.
