Equities Trading


As discussed in greater detail on our 'What are Equities' page, in the context of Spread Betting or CFD Trading, equities describe the stocks which can be traded publicly – all publicly traded companies offer shares which can be acquired on the open financial market. However, with both Spread Betting and CFDs, traders do not actually purchase the stock in question. Instead, they trade the movement of stock price, making a profit or loss depending on the subsequent movement of that price relating to the direction of the position taken.

Equities are more specifically focused than some other forms of trading. Unlike Indices (which are formed by aggregating a set of equities), Commodities (which look at global or regional yield and quality for a specific product) and Forex Pairs (based around national currencies) – each individual stock is based around a specific company, so traders have the chance to do far more specific research around the company in question.

Stocks with Multiple Listings

Although all publicly traded firms have stocks which are listed on the financial markets, some companies – multinational corporations are often a prime example of this - have different versions of their stocks on different indices. Take, for example, the Toyota car company in Japan. As one might expect, the firm’s stock can be purchased on the Nikkei (T7203), where at the time of writing the stock had closed at a level of 8377.0 Yen. However, the Tokyo stock price is also linked to the markets in Frankfurt, London and New York, all of which offer Toyota shares to traders. This means that even when the Nikkei is closed, Toyota stock is still available to trade, making things a lot easier for prospective traders in Toyota stock from elsewhere in the world. For example, European traders who prefer to trade the markets directly rather than rely on automated execution would otherwise be in the unenviable position of having to wake up in the middle of their night to trade the Nikkei, due to the time difference.

When companies have their stock listed on multiple exchanges, it gives brokerages the ability to offer an ADR – Average Daily Rate - version of the stock to trade, which takes into account all of the different listings of that company’s stock on worldwide indices.
