Stocks or shares are the main domain of all global stock exchanges. Even people who are not active traders may own shares in a company, which makes them a ‘shareholder’ and entitled to dividends, a share of the companies profits.

How stocks work?

There are a variety of shares and share classes – the most common being basic or ordinary shares which are integral to stock exchange trading.
Preferential shares guarantee their shareholders receive preferential payment of dividends and a share of a company’s liquidation balance. There are also ’employee shares’ which companies use a means of incentive for their employees.
Shares are found in two only two forms – paper and booked. There are also ‘bearer shares’ which are solely owned by whoever hold the physical stock certificate.

How to trade?

Getting started is quite simple. Create a trading account, deposit your funds, log in to your account, and start trading.
As a shareholder you are eligible to receive company dividends. However, the main risk is not knowing whether a company will make a profit. Also, trading stocks with CFDs does not require traders to purchase the stock itself.

Why invest?

Speculating on the stock market is a fairly popular method for investors because it is considered to be significantly safer that other markets.

To trade with stocks you can either invest directly in a company or your can trade CFDs on stocks of choice. The benefit of using CFDs to trade is that you do not have to own the actual stock.
