Shares trading in FBS
It is important to understand how we can trade stocks on FBS. Unlike other brokers, such as eToro, FBS does not offer the direct buying and selling of shares on the stock market. What it offers are CFDs (Contracts For Difference) on shares. CFDs are OTC derivative instruments that allow the trader to speculate on the rise and fall of the price of different underlying assets or markets, like stocks, but without investing directly in them.
The following is a definition of CFDs:
A Contract For Difference (CFD) can be defined as a contract between two parties to exchange the difference between the purchase price and the sale price of any financial asset, including currency pairs, commodities, stocks and commodities, for example. More information on: What are CFDs
In CFD trades with FBS, the trader can not only earn from price fluctuations, but also obtain dividends on the shares that pay these on the corresponding dates.
More instruments mean more opportunities to diversify and make money in different markets. The full list of stocks offered by FBS, as well as the dividend schedule and instrument specifications, are available on its website via the following link:
