The participation of millennials in the investing game has increased, more so during the lockdown phase. Moreover, millennials are believed to be more tech-savvy investors as compared to the retail investors that lasted till around a decade ago.

The traditional way of stock trading that was employed at the time of inception was a very rowdy experience with lots of shouting and noise and required a lot of manual paperwork upon each trade to make it official.

However, modern-day trading has seen a tremendous transformation from being physically present at the stock exchange floor for trading, to doing everything from their own mobile phone as well as on the go. The governing role that technology has played in bringing about this transformation is remarkable and has laid the foundation for quicker order execution, minimised human error, and a better ability to research the up-to-date news or information related to companies.
