Do you want to buy Great-West Lifeco (GWO.TO) shares in Toronto in Spain and through a regulated and reliable broker? Are you interested in being able to invest your bank savings and obtain capital gains on the stock market? In this tutorial I am going to show you how you can invest in DEGIRO , a reliable German investment bank with minimal commissions, and how you will be able to buy your first shares of Great-West Lifeco Inc. (GWO.TO) (GWO .TO) quickly and intuitively.
The process is very simple :
- The first step is that we will register in degiro, an interface where we will buy shares of Great-West Lifeco Inc. (GWO.TO), (GWO.TO).
- In this step we will enter euros to carry out our 1st investment.
- When we see the funds in our account we have to locate the company Great-West Lifeco through the TICKER, GWO.TO.
- To finish, we will only go on to indicate the number of shares that we want to buy, price and type of order.
The tutorial may have been a bit essential for you, so I am going to explain it step by step with images:
How to open an account with DEGIRO.
First we are going to register in DeGiro with the following link :
It will require an email, a username and a password to enter, and then we will continue from the link that they have sent us by email.
Now Degiro is going to ask us for some essential data with which they are going to verify our document . We must have our passport, DNI or driving license, your telephone number and the bank account number that we will use to proceed to make our first deposit. If you have no idea what this format is, you can check this simple post of instructions that we elaborated in Educacep .
Once our account is confirmed we can put money from the Deposit / Withdraw option. We have the possibility of carrying out a transaction that will take between one to two days, or make the deposit instantly using Sofort, a completely secure and 100% reliable payment gateway.
How to buy Great-West Lifeco (GWO.TO) shares via degiro
The moment we have the money we can get our 1st share. You can use the Place Order button that you will find in the right corner or use the DEGIRO search engine and paste the ticker. In the following screenshot you will find that I have put the Amazon Ticker but you should put (GWO.TO), the Great-West Lifeco ticker. As we are talking about an action, we will check that the related tickers are listed and there we will see to find Great-West Lifeco. The most fundamental thing is that the ticker, the name of the company and the market in which it is listed coincide. Amazon is listed on Nasdaq (NDQ) and in your case Great-West Lifeco Inc. (GWO.TO) is listed in Toronto. This step is very fundamental so make no mistake.
At the moment of placing the order we will have to pay special attention to what I am going to explain to you . We have the possibility of placing a limit or market order. Think you want to buy a share of Great-West Lifeco at 37.06, but its price today is more prominent. With a limit order we will adapt the value at which we want to make the purchase and until there are no shares selling at a certain price, the purchase operation of the share will not be executed. With a market order, you will buy the number of shares that we have indicated at the true selling price, which would be very close to the current trading price.
In both cases it is essential that you pay attention to the type of numbering: fixed or of the day . To give an example, in Spain, the stock market is in the morning and until 1 in the afternoon, and in the USA it corresponds to the afternoon schedule in Spain. If an order is fixed, it will continue until it reaches execution, but if you choose the “of the day” option, at the end of the day, if it has not been executed, it will be removed from your Activity file – Orders in process.
Hopefully this quick text has helped you buy stock in Great-West Lifeco. Until next time!
