WHAT IS STOCK TRADING?

Equities, or shares and stocks as they are more known, are units of ownership in a publicly listed company.

Traditional stock traders can buy the stocks of well-performing companies, which tend to appreciate over time, in order to make a profit when they sell their stocks at a higher price in the future.

However, trading equities or stocks through CFDs (Contracts for Difference) provides investors with easier access to stock trading with lower entry requirements as well as lower trading costs and also offers the capability to sell a stock that isn’t performing well and therefore profit from the downward movement.

stock trading advantages

  • Trade the best-performing stocks around the world
  • Low barrier of entry compared to a traditional stock exchange
  • Buy or sell in order to profit regardless of market direction

What affects the value of stocks?

As is the case with all financial markets, stock prices heavily rely on investor demand. If there are more buyers of a stock compared to sellers then the high competition will push prices upward. Simply put, if a stock is in high demand, its price tends to skyrocket.  

Therefore, a proven method in predicting changes in stock prices is analysis of a company’s financials as well as monitoring geopolitical developments that may interfere with a company’s operations.

It all comes down to how investors perceive the company through its published financial records and surrounding political climate. Market sentiment can easily change depending on the news as positive outlook can easily provide an upswing in prices while negative news can affect expectations causing investor confidence in the stock to diminish.

Technical analysis of the historical price data is highly popular in stock trading as well, but traders aiming for consistent results are advised to utilize both fundamental and technical analysis in order to confirm their trading ideas before entering the market.

The Individual Equities Trading Conditions display the ‘Spread Over Market’ for Individual Equity Instruments unless otherwise stated. The ‘Spread Over Market’ is the Mark-up CMTrading adds to the Current Market Spread.

Spread Cost Formula: Spread x Trade Size = Spread Charge in Currency Instrument is denominated in.

Example

For a trade of 1 APPLE share, with a Spread of 12 pips (0.12), the calculation is as follows:

0.12 X 1 = $0.12*

CMTrading are compensated through the Bid-Ask spread, except when otherwise stated.

All Instruments are traded on Margin allowing you to Leverage your positions. The Individual Equities Trading Conditions display Margin Amounts as a Percentage (%).

Percentage Margin Formula: Position Size x Current Price x Margin (%) = Margin Required*

*Margin Required is calculated in the Currency the Instrument is Denominated in.

CMTrading may double margin requirements on specific stocks prior to earnings release. This is a preventative measure to avoid clients with large exposures in the said equity, falling into negative equity.

Example

For a trade of 1 APPLE share with a Market Price of $500 and a Margin Requirement of 5.00%, the calculation is as follows:

Percentage Margin Requirement: 1 x 500 x 0.05 = $25.00*

The Individual Equities Trading Conditions display the Over-Night Interest Rates Charged/Paid on a daily basis for holding a position open past the End of Day time. These are displayed in the “Overnight Interest – Buy” and “Overnight Interest – Sell” columns. End of Day is 22:00 GMT except during Daylight Savings when it changes to 21:00 GMT.

You can use the following formula to calculate your Daily Overnight Interest amount:

Swap calculation = No Of nights * Swap (buy or sell) *No of Lots*Point value

 

Example

For a 1 lot APPLE trade, with a Daily Swap Buy Rate of -20.34 and subject to charge for 1 day the calculation is as follows:

SWAP = 1x-20.34x1x1.5= -30.51 USD

Notes

  • Point value = Contract size *No of Decimals in the Pair.

For APPLE , the price is denominated in 2 decimals. Point value = 150 (contract size) * 0.01 (number of decimals) so the point value for is APPLE 1.5

  • Overnight Interest Charged/Paid is calculated in the Currency the Instrument is Denominated in.

 

Note:

Positions that are held open over Wednesday night will incur a triple swap charge. This is to account for the settlement of trades over the weekend, where no swap rates are charged since the market is closed.

Individual Equities may at some stage partake in a Corporate Action; these can include Dividends, Rights Issues, Stock/Reverse Splits, Mergers, Acquisitions, Takeovers etc.

Dividends: For any individual equity on the CMTrading trading platforms that declares a dividend, CMTrading will make an Adjustment to every account that holds said equity, at the end of the cum-dividend day. This will be one day before the ex-dividend day.

The adjustment made to accounts will be:

1. Long Positions will be Credited with 90% of the Gross dividend.

(Amount of Shares x Gross Dividend) x 0.90

2. Short Positions will be Debited with 100% of the Gross dividend.

(Amount of Shares x Gross Dividend) x -1

Note: There are no other costs to clients in relation to Dividends.

Example

For a trade of 1 APPLE share, with a GROSS Div. of $1.00, the calculation is as follows:

Long Position: (1 x 1.00) x 0.90 = 1.00 x 0.90 = +$0.90

Short Position: (1 x 1.00) x -1 = 1.00 x -1 = -$1.00

For ALL other Corporate Actions: Rights Issue, Stock/Reverse Splits, Mergers, Acquisitions, Takeovers etc, and as these actions can happen suddenly and without prior knowledge, Open Positions and Orders will be Closed/Removed at the end of the cum-action day at market price on the particular equity.

Note: There are no costs to clients in relation to these other Corporate Actions.
