Do you know that Indian investors looking to invest abroad are getting a lot of attention these days. In addition to the existing foreign funds, several international mutual fund schemes have been launched recently. Through these schemes, domestic investors have been given the option to bring diversification in their portfolio. Some of these international funds are ‘funds of funds’ while some may be feeder funds. Among them are several passive index funds, which track most of the major global indices.
Invest in Facebook, Apple or Amazon
Buying foreign stocks is not as difficult a task as it sounds. It is possible for Indian investors to invest in some of the top US stocks such as Facebook, Apple or Amazon, including recent top movers such as Salesforce, Visa, American Express Company, Costco Wholesale Corp, Expedia Group, Zivo Bioscience, Paltalk. You can buy these shares in the same way as you buy shares in the Indian stock market like Zomato, Reliance, Tata Motors etc.
What is the process of investment
The process of investing in US stocks begins with opening a foreign trading account through an international brokerage firm. On completing other formalities including KYC and LRS norms of RBI, which the brokerage firm helps in completing, you can start trading in US stocks. This process is enough.
trade in rupees
If you’re wondering whether you need to buy US stocks in dollars, the answer is no. There is good news for you. To invest in US stocks one can start buying US shares with an amount as low as Rs 100. Unlike the Indian stock exchanges, the price is not a constraint on the US stock market. Just decide how much you want to invest and the number of shares will be automatically calculated for you.
what would be the right way
A better approach might be to buy some of the top US stocks on a regular basis with a fixed amount of Rs 50000 or Rs 1 lakh. The US stock market presents an opportunity for investors to invest in some of the leading global blue-chips stocks and make gains over the long term. Global equity markets are currently trading at almost all-time highs. But that shouldn’t deter investors from looking for long-term opportunities across sectors.
what to do in the beginning
Investors need to benefit over the long term from the capacity being pumped by domestic companies in the US. Keep an eye on the major stocks in the beginning and use any major or minor declines as an opportunity to accumulate stocks for the long term. Financial market experts say that all investments should not be in one place. This should be done in many places. In such a situation, if there is no good profit in one place, then good profit can be made from another place.
