OTC US Stocks: CFDs on US Stocks
Trading stocks or equities includes buying and selling the shares of publicly-traded companies from around the world such as Microsoft, Boeing or Pfizer. When individuals buy stocks or shares in these companies it defines the amount of interest a person holds in ownership in a corporation.
Unlike traditional stock trading, over the counter (OTC) trading on stocks, or contract for difference (CFDs) on stocks, are financial instruments that allow traders to invest and take advantage of both prices moving up (going long) or prices moving down (going short) without having to pay for owning the stock itself. The trade is performed over the counter (OTC) similar to trading FX, which means the trading is done directly between the two involved parties and not via central exchange market.
