The first thing to do is sign up with an online stock broker. Brokers are platforms that allow you to execute stock market trades. 

There are other ways to invest beyond simply buying or selling shares directly with a broker, though. Those ways include a mutual fund that holds shares of Alibaba or buying and selling exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The links below take you to individual pages which guide you through every step of the process.
