Trading on equity is the process of buying and selling of company stock indices, shares and sector CFDs. Shares of big public companies are bought and sold through the major stock exchanges such as New York Stock Exchange, London Stock Exchange, and Tokyo Stock Exchange which act 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. Two types of trading Proprietary trading, also called principal trading, and Agency trading. Proprietary trading is buying and selling for the trader's own profit or loss. The principal is the owner of the shares.
