What is Social Trading? — AAX Academy

Trading financial markets has become increasingly accessible to more people over the past decade. Whereas investing used to be reserved for the wealthy, anyone can now download a mobile brokerage app and start buying and selling securities at near-zero fees. This change is part of the ongoing shift towards digitalization, where information and services are brought online to reach more people at lower cost. Over the last 20 years, even the way we interact with other people has changed. We now use digital platforms to keep contact with friends and family, meet new people with similar interests, share information, attend classrooms, or even work in distributed and decentralized teams.
