    When trading you find the share price is 36.50 shillings per share lets say of Kcb group as listed on NSE Market. But when you want to buy on the platfoam its 37.20. Same thing with selling at NSE Market its 40.30 shillings per share but when you go to sell from the platfoam its 39.60 can someone explain to me why the difference from NSE Market n the platfoam and yet you will still be charged 2% broker fee

      Trading in ordinary shares on the stock market does not provide a fixed monthly income. You only get paid when the company whose shares you've acquired pays out dividends which is normally on an annual or semi-annual basis. If you want fixed payment, then you may want to look into preference shares of companies on the stock market. Otherwise, go to an investment bank to see their money market products such as fixed deposit, treasury bills and corporate bonds.
