How To Buy NU Stock

By now you're likely curious about how to participate in the market for Nu Holdings – be it to purchase shares, or even attempt to bet against the company.

Buying shares is typically done through a brokerage account. You can find a list of possible trading platforms here.

In the case of Nu Holdings, which is trading at $11.86 as of publishing time, $100 would buy you 8.43 shares of stock.

If you're looking to bet against a company, the process is more complex.
