Great question for Investopedia!

You can certainly give the instruction to buy or sell a given stock on your behalf. Share of publicly traded companies are generally traded on exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Your cash and any shares you own are generally held by a custodian such as Charles Schwab, Scottrade, TD Ameritrade, etc.  ou simply give the instruction to buy or sell to the custodian. Visit one or more of those sites and open a practice account--no real money is needed! Try out the system for yourself. Once you become comfortable and after you do plenty of research, you may want to buy and sell. I hope that helps. Good luck!
