How does forex trading work?

Forex, also known as foreign exchange or FX trading, is the conversion of one currency into another. It is one of the most actively traded markets in the world, with an average daily trading volume of $5 trillion. Take a closer look at everything you’ll need to know about forex, including what it is, how you trade it and how leverage in forex works.

Three types of forex pairs:

Major pairs – seven currencies that makeup 80% of global forex trading. Includes EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD and USD/CHF
Minor pairs – less frequently traded, these often feature major currencies against each other instead of the US dollar. Includes: EUR/GBP, EUR/CHF, GBP/JPY
Exotic pairs- a major currency against one from a small or emerging economy. Includes: USD/PLN, GBP/MXN, EUR/CZK

Institutional forex trading takes place directly between two parties in an over-the-counter (OTC) market. Meaning there are no centralized exchanges (like the stock market), and the institutional forex market is instead run by a global network of banks and other organizations.Four types of forex pairs:

How does Indices trading work?

Indices are a measurement of the price performance of a group of shares from an exchange. For example, the FTSE 100 tracks the 100 largest companies on the London Stock Exchange. Trading indices enables you to get exposure to an entire economy or sector at once, while only having to open a single position.

Most stock market indices are calculated according to the market capitalisation of their component companies. This method gives greater weighting to larger cap companies, which means their performance will affect an index’s value more than lower cap companies.

The most traded indices :

DJIA (Wall Street) – measures the value of the 30 largest blue-chip stocks in the US
DAX (Germany 30) – tracks the performance of the 30 largest companies listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange
NASDAQ 100 (US Tech 100) – reports the market value of the 100 largest non-financial companies in the US

Why Indices?

Go long or short

Going long means you are buying a market because you expect the price to rise. Going short means you are selling a market because you expect the price to fall.

Trade with leverage

CFDs are leveraged products. This means you only need to commit a small initial deposit – known as margin – to open a position that gives you much larger market exposure.

Hedge your positions

An investor with a collection of different shares might short an index to protect themselves from losses in their portfolio.

Lower margin

Indices include lower margin, as it a combination of stocks and hence offering a natural diversification.

How does Stocks trading work?

CFDs are a leveraged product, meaning you can gain full exposure to shares while only putting down a small deposit. While this magnifies possible profits, it does the same for losses.

They also enable you to buy and sell shares online without ever owning the underlying asset. An additional benefit is you can trade both rising and falling markets.

Types of stocks:

When you own common stock, you own a share in the company’s profits as well as the right to vote. Common stock owners may also earn dividends, but those dividends are typically variable and not guaranteed.
Preferred stock prices are less volatile than common stock prices, which means shares are less prone to losing value, but they’re also less prone to gaining value. It typically pays investors a fixed dividend. In general, preferred stock is best for investors who prioritize income over long-term growth.
Common and preferred are the two main forms of stock, however, it’s also possible for companies to customize different classes of stock in any way they want. The most common reason for this is the company wanting the voting power to remain with a certain group; hence, different classes of shares are given different voting rights.

Our share dealing service enables you to invest in company shares with a view to selling them for a profit at a later date. When you buy shares, you can also earn an income from any dividend payments and gain shareholder rights.

Why Stocks?

Pay no tax on spread bets and offset losses against profits for tax purposes with CFDs.

How does Commodities trading work?

Commodities are raw materials that are used to produce finished goods. Commodities include agricultural products, mineral ores and fossil fuels—they’re basically any kind of natural resource that is consumed by companies and individuals. Commodities are physical goods that are bought, sold and traded in markets, distinct from securities such as stocks and bonds that exist only as financial contracts.

The main types of commodities:

Energy. The energy market includes oil, natural gas, coal and ethanol—even uranium. Energy also includes forms of renewable energy, like wind power and solar power.
Metals. Commodity metals include precious metals, like gold, silver, palladium and platinum, as well as industrial metals, like iron ore, tin, copper, aluminum and zinc.
Agriculture. Agriculture covers edible goods, such as cocoa, grain, sugar and wheat, as well as nonedible products, such as cotton, palm oil and rubber.

Commodity trading is the exchange of different assets, typically futures contracts, that are based on the price of an underlying physical commodity.
With the buying or selling of these futures contracts, investors make bets on the expected future value of a given commodity. If they think the price of a commodity will go up, they buy certain futures—or go long—and if they think price the commodity will fall, they sell off other futures—or go short.
