FAQs

What are stocks?

Stocks are shares of ownership in a company. Each share represents a partial stake in a business, and often entitles the holder to dividends, a regular payment made to shareholders. When we trade equities, we are dealing with the shares of publicly traded companies, listed on a stock exchange, and subject to scrutiny by investors, exchange officials, and analysts. Stocks form a dynamic and fast-trading market, with a mixture of institutional professionals, long-term investors, and speculators all contributing to liquidity.

Who trades stocks?

Stocks are popular with both speculators and long-term investors, and they are the focus of most mutual funds and investment funds. This is largely due to their favourable long-term growth prospects as an asset class, though individual stock performance varies. High volatility and a bias towards growth offers strong opportunities for skilled traders in this space. Stock traders with ADSS can benefit from fast execution, round-the-clock support, and access to the world’s major exchanges.

How does equity trading work?

Equity trading is the buying and selling of shares of publicly listed companies (or their derivatives) in the equity market. Traders can participate in equity trading in a few ways. By buying and selling stocks and funds directly on stock exchanges, or by speculating on the volatility of stocks through derivative trading via options and CFDs. The goal of equity trading is to profit from stock price fluctuations. A typical investment strategy is buying shares online at a lower price and selling them at a higher price. Learn more about how to start trading stocks with our guide.

What is the difference between stock trading and equity trading?

Stock trading and equity trading are often used interchangeably, as they both refer to the buying and selling of shares of companies in the same financial market. However, stock trading refers only to the exchange of shares. On the other hand, equity trading can involve the exchange of not only shares but other instruments that represent ownership in a company, such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs) or equity derivatives such as stock CFDs. Therefore, equity trading is a broader term than stock trading.

How much money do I need to start equity trading?

The amount of money you will need to start equity trading depends on the broker and the type of account you open. At ADSS, we offer three live account types: Classic, Elite, and Pro. You can open a Classic account with a minimum deposit of 100 USD, and an Elite or Pro account with a minimum deposit of 100,000 USD. Each account tier comes with its own benefits, such as leveraged trading and dedicated customer support. To learn more about our accounts and their opening requirements, you can check out our account tiers.

Can I practise trading equities online?

Yes! At ADSS, you can open a stocks demo account and speculate on price movements of equities with simulated funds. Demo trading is popular amongst traders of all levels, as it offers a risk-free way for traders to get to know an unfamiliar platform or instrument, or test out new strategies.

When does the stock market open and close?

Stock market hours depend on the stock exchange that traders participate in. Each exchange follows regular business hours in local time. For example, the New York Stock Exchange in the US is open from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time, Monday to Friday, excluding holidays. Different stock exchanges will have their own trading hours. You must check the operating hours of the specific instruments when you participate in stock trading in the UAE and beyond.

How can I trade equities with CFDs?

Contracts for Differences (CFDs) allow traders to speculate on the price movements of equities without having to own the underlying shares. When trading equities with CFDs, you enter a contract for difference on a stock based on your predictions of its price movements in the stock market. If you believe the price of a stock will increase, you will buy a contract going long. Conversely, if you believe the price of a stock will decrease, you will buy a contract going short. To learn more before you trade shares online, you can read our guide on CFD trading.

What moves the prices of equities?

Several factors influence the prices of equities. These include company-specific factors such as financial performance and management changes. Broader market factors like general economic health, geopolitical events, and market sentiment can also impact equity trading prices, as the latter can impact investor demand for certain stocks. Additionally, sector-specific factors can impact price movements in the stock market. Regardless of the equity market you have your eye on, ensure you do thorough research on market conditions and outlook to make informed decisions when you are stock trading online.

Investing in CFDs involves a high degree of risk that you will lose your money due to the use of leverage, particularly in fast moving markets, where a relatively small movement in the price can lead to a proportionately larger movement in the value of your investment. This can result in loses that exceed the funds in your account. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and you should seek independent advice if necessary.
