Currency Trading (FOREX)

Forex (Foreign Exchange) is an international currency market, where all the national currencies are being traded. It is carried out globally, online, through licensed financial institutions, as the market is opened for 24 hours a day, 5 days a week with an average daily turnover of between $2 and $4 trillions.

Contracts for Differences Trading (CFD)

Trading with CFDs is speculative trading with the price change of a given asset. These instruments do not have a fixed maturity date and profitability, and allow for freedom of trade at any time.

Stocks Trading

Stocks are a share in the ownership of a company, and have the very same meaning as equities and shares. Owning stocks of a company gives you the right to receive a part of the company’s earnings, a vote upon the decisions that are made and the opportunity to claim on assets.

Bond Trading

A bond is a debt security. When you purchase a bond, you are lending money in return for which the issuer provides you with a security, in which it promises to pay an interest during the life of the bond, and to repay the principal when it matures, or comes due.

Futures and Forwards Trading

The futures are a financial contract obligating the buyer to purchase an asset (or the seller to sell an asset), at a predetermined future date and price. Forwards are much the same as Futures, as the main difference is that forwards are actually traded Over the Counter (OTC), and are exposed to both market and credit risks

Options Trading

An option, just like a stock or bond, is a security. Unlike them, however, the options are called derivatives, which means that they derive their value from something else. It establishes a specific price, at which the contract may be exercised, or acted on before a maturity date. There are two types of optionbs - Call and Put.

Margin Trading

Margin trading literally means trading with money that you do not have. This type of trading is basically an act of extending credit for the purposes of trading, thus requiring from the client only part of the total funds.
