What is an Equity Trading
The term equity trading refers to the buying and selling of company shares, stock indices and sector CFDs.
Here, shares of big public companies are bought and sold through the
major stock exchanges like London Stock Exchange, New York Stock
Exchange, and Tokyo Stock Exchange. These exchanges serve as managed
auctions for stock trades. But, stock indices in small companies are
bought and sold in OTC (over-the-counter) markets.
Deals can be
performed by the owner of the stocks, or by an agent. There are two
types of trading - Proprietary trading (also called principal trading)
and Agency trading. First one is buying and selling for the trader's
own profit or loss. Here, the principal is the owner of the shares. In
the case of agency trading, an agent (usually a stock broker) buys and
sells stocks, on behalf of a client. Stock brokers are paid a commission
for performing the trade.

Benefits of CFD Trading over Stock Trading
Contract for Difference (CFDs) are considered as more flexible trading instruments than stock and indices. Here are some of the advantages of CFD trading over stock trading.

market stocks, CFD traders can trade products in all world markets.

platform. Click here to know the CFD range of products Orient Finance offer. Better Leverage: CFD trading involves higher leverage than stock trading. Generally stock trading involves 50% margin requirements, meaning you should have capital of 500 for trading a contract size of 1000.

Fore example with 5% margin, one can trade 1000 worth contract with just 50 as capital investment.

CFD trading has much relaxed rules and regulations than stock trading.

they want. At times stock markets can restrict traders going short; but
in CFD trading one can go short any time they want as there is no
ownership of underlying asset, no burrowing costs or shorting costs.Getting Trade Executions with No Fees: Like online forex trading, CFD trading does not involve any trading commissions. The difference in ask and bid spread is the broker's remuneration. This spread is often fixed and usually there are no hidden charges or additional fees. Moreover CFD brokers offer all order types as traditional stock brokers offer.And a Range of Products: Now CFDs are available on a wide range of underlying products. These include currency pairs, shares, stock indices, commodities, treasury products and more.
