The question about the right choice of stock exchange for stock trading is actually fundamentally wrong. Investors' trading transactions are usually carried out either by banks, brokers, or broker platforms. These cooperate with the various stock exchanges and process their orders within the system. Therefore, the choice of the respective stock exchange is actually determined by the choice of the respective broker.

Of course, a trading platform can offer a far greater selection of shares for the user, the more stock exchanges it has access to.

For beginners, it is usually enough if a trading platform cooperates with the most common and largest exchanges. One of the indisputable advantages of this is the fact that you can get information about companies listed on the major international stock exchanges much faster and better than about those that are listed, for example, only on the stock exchange in Durban, South Africa.

The choice of the right trading platform will make decision-making easier because here the investor should be able to trust that payments are made efficiently and that appropriate advice or even suitable training measures are available.
