Tech Age and Business Investments: Top Digital Investing Trends to Follow

Technology has given investors many different choices when it comes to making investments. It has also made making investments significantly easier. All one needs is a mobile device and an internet connection, and financial independence through investing can be achieved.

If you consider yourself an investor (or want to get started) then you need to work on diversifying your portfolio and following new digital investing trends.

This post will explore this topic in more detail, telling you about some of the top digital investing trends that you need to follow.


Online Platforms

For some time now, traders have been using online platforms to buy stocks and shares. In the past, it was only possible to do this over the phone or in person. It is fair to say then, that the use of platforms is the biggest trend in digital trading that there is. There are a variety of different platforms that you can use, with Degiro being one of the most popular. If you have heard Degiro’s name before or want to learn more about it, then read a Degiro review first. To be completely honest, no matter what platform you use, you need to make sure that you read reviews. Not reading reviews about platforms can lead to you using one that’s not worth your time. A platform’s reviews will tell you about everything, from the quality of their customer support desk to the size of the fees they take.

Cryptocurrency Investment

Cryptocurrency investing is very popular at the moment because it can be very profitable. However, it is worth noting that it can also be very dangerous. People have lost fortunes trading crypto. One thing that you need to watch out for if you plan on investing in crypto is pump ‘n’ dump schemes, which are when traders artificially inflate a stock’s price, in order to convince people to buy it thinking that it’s about to take off, then the traders sell their holdings and cause the crypto’s value to plummet. Pump ‘n’  dump schemes can be a surefire way for you to lose your investment.

Freemium Trading

Freemium trading has gained a lot of traction recently.  Traders no longer want to have to pay large fees when they place or make trades. With freemium platforms, they don’t have to. Freemium trading is when you are able to make trades without paying any fees at all. However, it is worth noting that you have restricted access to stocks and shares on most platforms when you are freemium trading. Restricted access will mean that you aren’t able to access specific, popular stocks. However, you do get to keep all of the money that you make for yourself.

Social Investing

Social investing is one of the most popular trading trends ever. It involves groups and communities of traders coming together, and sharing information, making more effective trades. A good example of social investing was when Reddit’s WallStreetBets sub-forum began buying GameStop shares. These shares then increased in value exponentially, making some of the community’s users millionaires. Such communities persist today. If you want to learn to become a better trader, then becoming a member of one is a very good idea. However, be wary of any investment advice you get from strangers online.

Copying Trades

Some platforms give users the opportunity to copy other people’s trades. Copying more experienced investors’ trades can be a highly effective way of making money. After all, experienced investors are more likely to make profitable trades than inexperienced ones. Before making any kind of investment, regardless of whether it has been endorsed by a professional, make sure that you take some time to do your research and learn about the stock. Trading is not gambling. A lot of people, unfortunately, treat it as though it is. The more reckless you are, the more likely you will be to lose money.

Being Sensible

As mentioned in the previous section, it is very important that you are sensible when you are trading or investing in anything, really. You can lose money investing just as quickly as you can make it. If you don’t take care, do your research, and learn about the things that you are planning on investing in, then you will inevitably lose out. One of the best ways to learn how to make sensible investments is to employ somebody to help you or take a masterclass in it.

Investing can be a good way of making money, as long as you are sensible. One of the best ways to ensure that your investments are profitable is to follow digital trends. Digital trends become trends because of how effective they are, which makes them safe to follow. That said, do your research and learn as much about a trend as you can before you begin incorporating it into your strategy.
