You can trade stocks on our platform in the form of Equities and in the form of CFDs.
Equities are marked with the label “EQ” whereas CFDs are marked with “CFD”.
Equities are real stocks which you can buy and sell directly on the London Stock Exchange, NYSE, NASDAQ and Deutsche Börse.
CFDs are derivatives based on the price of real stocks. When you buy a CFD you don’t buy the stock itself but you speculate with its price.
Equities are intended for long term investors and traders, whereas CFDs are aimed at experienced traders only.
The advantages of equities are:
- Real delivery
- Can be traded directly on the stock exchanges
- No interest swap
