Share Trading Guide

💝Share trading is the most common form of trading. A share is simply a fractional holding of a company. This gives traders an opportunity to buy and sell a share of a company that is listed on a stock exchange. 

There is a wealth of information online which allows you to research a particular company and industry when trading shares. You can see upcoming earnings releases here.

☂Traditionally you would only be able to trade shares through a stockbroker. However, spread-betting allows you to trade the price of a share directly rather than holding actual shares. This means you don't have to pay Stamp Duty, Capital Gains Tax, accountant or stockbrokers fees*. You can also bet against companies that you believe will under-perform with ease.

When you own shares (and also with spread betting) you will be paid out a dividend which represents your share in the profit. The dividend paid to shareholders hinges on how much of the profits are reinvested and how much management distributes to shareholders. ☂Find out more about receiving dividends when spread betting here.
