What is share trading

Shares are one of the most popular and well-known financial instruments. When you buy a share, you’re buying a small part - or ‘unit of ownership’ - in a company. So if you’re considering trading shares, it’s extremely important to research both the company and the industry that it’s in.

An added benefit of trading shares is receiving dividends. They represent your share of the company’s profits and are usually paid out twice a year. The amount you receive depends on how much the management distributes to shareholders, and how much it reinvests back into the business.

Funding lightbox

How is funding on shares calculated?

Size for CFDs means number of shares.

Closing price means underlying market price when the market closes.

If your trade is in GBP

Size × closing price × LIBOR +/- 2.5% ÷ 365

Based on LIBOR one month overnight rate

If your trade is in USD

Size × closing price × US LIBOR +/–2.5% ÷ 360   

If your trade is in EUR

Size × closing price × EURIBOR +/–2.5% ÷ 365   

The formula uses a 365-day divisor for UK, Singapore and South African shares, and a 360-day divisor for shares in other markets.
