What is share trading?

Share trading allows you to obtain legal ownership in a specific company. Once you have shares in a company you own the underlying asset and can access company dividends and be able to vote in company meetings.  

Once you buy or sell shares, you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the shares for money. This exchange is called settlement and occurs two business days after the trade takes place.

You can purchase shares using individually-held electronic funds or leverage your share trading using a margin loan from a margin loan provider.
