US Stocks

OTC US Stocks: CFDs on US Stocks

The trading of stocks or equities involves buying and selling the shares of publicly-traded companies from around the world. This includes the likes of corporations like Microsoft, Boeing and Pfizer, but in principle also relates to any public company listed on the stock exchange. At ICM we offer US stock trading on a targeted selection of companies to enhance our customer’s financial opportunities.

Unlike contract for difference (CFDs) trades, stocks are financial instruments that allow traders to invest and take advantage of prices moving up (going long) or down (going short) without having to pay for ownership of the stock itself. Trades are performed over the counter (OTC) similar to FX, which means the trading is conducted directly between the two involved parties and not via a central exchange market.

  

 

Advantages of CFDs on stocks:

  • No middlemen
  • Efficient use of capital
  • Hedging other investments
  • No expiry dates

  • Profit potential in falling/raising market
  • High leverage
  • Free demo account
  • Free news, charts and analysis
