What is Equity CFD trading?
Equities trading is the buying and selling of fractional ownership of a company. On a stock exchange, trade prices and the pending volume at each price point are publicly available in what’s known as the order book. When a buy and a sell order match in price, the exchange facilities this trade and updates the last traded price. The deal is then typically settled with a broker for retail clients, or directly by a financial institution.
In Australia, the stock market has pre-open and pre-close phases where buying and selling orders are allowed to overlap. A computer algorithm then matches these orders and determines the opening and closing price where the most amount of stocks trade through.
Financial products exist to mimic the price movements of equity products. Contracts for Difference (CFDs) offer exposure on stock price movement without having ownership of the actual stock. Providers of CFDs typically offer cash payouts when a stock pays dividends but do not provide franking credits.
