- Which financial markets are available?
On whotrades.com you have access to all US stocks and options, listed for example on the following exchanges:
NYSE — The stock exchange based in New York City, which is considered to be the largest equities-based exchange in the world, is based upon the total market capitalization of its listed securities. NYSE is home to the majority of the world’s largest and best-known companies. Also known as the "Big Board", the NYSE relied for many years on floor trading only, using the open outcry system. Today, more than half of all NYSE trades are conducted electronically.
NASDAQ — A computerized system that facilitates trading and provides price quotations on more than 5,000 of the most actively traded over the counter stocks. Established in 1971, the NASDAQ was the world's first electronic stock market. The NASDAQ is traditionally home to many high-tech stocks, such as Microsoft, Intel, Dell and Cisco.
FOREX — The foreign exchange market involves investing in different international currencies in order to turn a profit by trading when relative currency values shift. The FOREX market is the largest, most liquid market in the world with an average traded value that exceeds $1.9 trillion per day and any person, firm or country may participate in this market. FOREX investments have the potential to generate a profit in any economic climate, even during an economic collapse. There is no central marketplace for currency exchange; trade is conducted on an over-the-counter basis. The FOREX market is open 24 hours a day, five days a week and currencies are traded worldwide among the major financial centers of London, New York, Tokyo, Zurich, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore, Paris and Sydney.
What instruments can I trade?
WhoTrades offers clients a great variety of trading instruments:
Equity is a stock or any other security representing an ownership interest. A stock is a type of security that signifies ownership in a corporation and represents a claim on part of the corporation's assets and earnings.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
ETF is a security that tracks an index, a commodity or a basket of assets like an index fund, but trades like a stock on an exchange. ETFs experience price changes throughout the day as they are bought and sold.
ADR is a negotiable certificate issued by a US bank representing a specified number of shares (or one share) in a foreign stock that is traded on a US exchange. ADRs are denominated in US dollars, with the underlying security held by a US financial institution overseas.
An option is a contract to buy or sell a specific financial product officially known as the option's underlying instrument or underlying interest. For equity options, the underlying instrument is a stock, exchange-traded fund (ETF), or similar product.
