I haven't traded yet online but I wanted to try, just to see. I'm in Europe and I'd like to buy 4 shares of Apple (it's about $344 as I write this, so I would invest about $1376).
Can I just open up, say, a KeyTrade account, and send $1500 on my KeyTrade account and buy only 4 shares?
Would the fee be terribly bad if I were to buy such a small amount of shares?
I don't really care about the money: it's the principle that I'm interested in. I'd like to understand better how it works and I figured out buying a few stocks would be one way to "get it".
