Equity trading is the buying and selling of company shares or stocks, also known as equities, on the financial market. There are a few ways in which you can invest in equities. Most equity trading refers to the buying and selling of public company shares through a stock exchange or as over-the-counter products.

Equity CFDs are a simpler way to short-sell stock, which, combined with leveraged trading, offers you the trading opportunities on falling stock prices.

Our Equity CFDs can be traded on leverage using MetaTrader 5. To add equity CFDs to your trading portfolio, open a MetaTrader 5 account and select Equity CFDs from your market watch. With faster processing times, the ability to hedge, advanced pending orders and the newest tools and indicators to help you take your trading to the next level, MT5 provides exceptional features to help you stay ahead of the markets.

Trading Equity CFDs means you trade on direct underlying exchange prices with no additional mark-ups added to the bid/offer spread. Instead, you’ll pay a small commission per trade placed.
