Transaction mechanism similar to when we are looking for a house (property) via an agent. If we want to buy a home, the first step is to contact the property agent to do the order with the order type / specification is sought and the range of the purchase price.

Then the broker looking for a list of homes for sale or looking to fellow real estate agent to fulfill the order. Goods sold are items from other investors. Of course, other investors are already giving orders in advance.

The same also applies when transaction stock. Investors who want to buy shares, shall enter an order in advance through a broker, and his order was sought by investors sell orders through a system.

Where is the location of stock transactions?

Actually there are location-stock transaction. But that was then.  That’s where the order meet resulting transaction (done). In the early days of trade exchanges, the order written on the board and when there are met or done noted.

The same thing happens when I want to start investing in the stock exchange. After selecting a broker, we fill in the account opening form brokerage office (sometimes form can be delivered and picked up). Then open a securities account, we must deposit the initial deposit to be a capital transaction. After that then we can do a securities transaction.
