What is share trading?

When you buy a share, you’re buying a small unit of ownership in a company. Trading shares as CFDs means you do not own the underlying, but you can still speculate on the price of that company. Therefore, before trading shares as CFDs, it’s really important to research both the company and the industry it’s in.

An added benefit of trading shares as CFDs is that you’ll still receive 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 is reinvested back into the business.

Share prices are affected by many factors, including supply and demand, the company’s earnings, and expectations of the company’s future performance (based on a wide variety of things such as industry legislation, the company’s management team and the health of the economy).

MeritFin executes Equity and CFD orders via SORs (Smart Order Routers), which are sophisticated algorithms placing orders across multiple venues in order to achieve the best result. To minimise market impact and improve quality of execution, SORs execute across regulated markets (Exchanges), MTFs and other liquidity venues.


Algorithmic Orders are especially useful for larger or more advanced stock orders. They used algorithmic equations to independently execute order transactions most efficiently, according to the client’s chosen strategy. They can also break down an order into smaller parts to avoid showing the full size of the order.


If you also trade Forex, CFDs or Futures, you’ve already got collateral with which to act on the next great opportunity. Use a percentage of your Stocks value as margin collateral and increase your market exposure.


MeritFin offers a wide range of Equities for all types of traders and market strategies.
