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.
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.
Instrument– The FX currency pair or underlying asset of the CFD product to be traded.
Country– The country that the equity or bond is based in.
Standard Contract size– The lot size traded on each platform (Note: CM Trading in MT4 represents the standard lot size).
Standard Spread– The difference between the BID & the ASK price quote for each instrument under normal market conditions.
Margin Per Lot– The required margin to open a single lot of each instrument (Note: It is shown in notional terms).
Overnight Interest Sell/Buy– The overnight interest debited/credited in daily % terms for each instrument.
Trading Hours– The time that trading is available for the specified instrument.
Exchange– The exchange of the underlying asset.
Trading CFD’s on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors.
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 CM Trading adds to the Current Market Spread.
Spread Cost Formula: Spread x Trade Size = Spread Charge in Currency Instrument is denominated in.
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*
CM Trading are compensated through the Bid-Ask spread, except when otherwise stated.
CM Trading do not charge commissions on any trade.
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.
CM Trading 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.
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 Overnight Interest amount:
Trade Size x End of Day Market Price x Daily Overnight Interest = Daily Overnight Interest Charged/Paid*
* Overnight Interest Charged/Paid is calculated in the Currency the Instrument is Denominated in.
For a trade of 1 APPLE share, with an End of Day Market Price of $140 and a Daily Overnight Interest Buy (or Sell) rate of -0.0080%, and subject to a charge for 1 day, the calculation is as follows:
1 x 170 x -0.000080 = -0.0136 = -$0.01* rounded.
Note: CM Trading platforms display overnight interest (swaps) in annualised terms.
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 CM Trading trading platforms that declares a dividend, CM Trading 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.
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.
