Equities

Saxo’s trading platform offers access to 40 stock exchanges worldwide.

Traditional equities trading offers investors units of stock in publicly traded companies whose value shifts with the company’s fortunes and which can be affected by corporate earnings releases, technical trends, cross-asset correlations, and other factors. Stock indices are weighted groupings of multiple firms – one example is the widely-traded US S&P 500 index – while exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, are marketable securities that trade in the same manner as equities while tracking the behaviour of an underlying asset such as an index, a commodity, bonds, and more.

Saxo Bank’s strategy team provide expert analysis of equity trends with a focus on corporate earnings, macro fundamentals, technical analysis, and cross-asset correlations. The SaxoTraderGO platform offers traders and investors access to a wide range of equities while our automated Trade Signals technology continually scans for potential equity trading opportunities based on chart patterns and success probability.

Equity trading is the exchange of company shares, derivatives, or broad stock indices, and is perhaps the highest-profile form of financial trading. Equities traders can trade instruments on major exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange, the London Stock Exchange, The Frankfurt Börse, the Tokyo Stock Exchange, or the Shanghai Stock Exchange, or on smaller exchanges like the Toronto Stock Exchange, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, or the Copenhagen Stock Exchange.
