Share trading is the buying and selling of shares of a company listed on a stock exchange for capital gains. Generally, shares on a stock exchange can be traded via an online broker, or traded privately under specific circumstances.
With shares trading in the financial markets, you can trade the likes of top companies around the world such as Tesla, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Alibaba and more.
Share price movements are often attributed to demand and supply changes in the underlying market, driven by company earnings, dividend payouts and news or announcements that affect the company. Macroeconomic factors such as global news and geopolitical tension are also powerful market moving determinants.
To create trading opportunities from the volatility in share price movements, you can trade share CFDs via a CFD provider such as Vantage. Share CFD trading allows you to speculate on the price movement of shares, without having to own the underlying asset – in this case, shares. Combined with leveraged trading, you can create opportunities on the minimal initial margin required to start trading share CFDs. With leverage, you only need to pay up a portion of your total value of the trade; unlike traditional share trading, where the total cost of the underlying asset must be paid in full.
CFD traders can trade share CFDs as a way to manage risk and take advantage of underlying market opportunities, enabling them to exploit market opportunities, regardless of rising or falling markets.
