Hi,

What's the difference between two tickers of the same company? For example, there's Kinross Gold Corp (CA) and Kinross Gold Corp.

"CA" stand for Canada, or California, or what? And is it the same company, not two separate ones, right? If so, which is the main one?

Thank you!

the same stock can be listed on different exchanges across the world. For example Apple has a main listing in America, but it also has a listing in germany and therefore will come up with Apple (DE). It's a way for investors to trade on the stock in their local currency, and although they are separate investment vehicles (i.e. priced independently) they are still highly correlated as they relate to the same company. 

In this instance CA refers to Canada. You can see the different listings by double checking in a third party search engine, for example Google Finance.  You'll see TSE, SWX and FRA.

Thank you, that's clear now. That means it's basically irrelevant which one you buy, as long as it's one company. The only thing to consider is the FX rate if you buy Apple in Eur, as you say, I guess.

One more: when you click to buy let's say Apple, you actually buy a share or a CFD?

I mean, really they are technically the same company but for absolute clarity it’s worth noting they are HIGHLY correlated - but not the same ;) semantics I know...

on a share dealing account you buy a share. On a CFD account you are buying a contract on the difference in price.

    • Charting the Markets - February 7, 2023 EUR/USD and GBP/USD drop back while USD/JPY bounce stalls. And WTI rallies while gold holds and aluminium slips. Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 07 February 2023                      This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.

    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD drop back while USD/JPY bounce stalls The dollar continues to recover following Friday’s non-farm payrolls, pushing down EUR/USD and GBP/USD while lifting USD/JPY.  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 07 February 2023 EUR/USD edges higher off 50-day SMA A revival of dollar strength has seen the uptrend in EUR/USD take a knock. The price has retreated swiftly over the past three sessions towards the rising 50-day simple moving average (SMA), setting up a possible higher low if a rebound develops. This then reinforces the bullish view and puts a move back to $1.10 into play. Continued losses below the 50-day SMA would then target the early January low around $1.05. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD decline slows Price action here with GBP/USD has seen the pair drop back below the 50-day SMA, and with a second failure to break the $1.24 level in two months now in a more bearish view may start to prevail. If the 200-day SMA is lost then the January low around $1.187 is possible support, followed up by $1.18 itself. Below this a more bearish view begins to take hold, and suggests a reversal of the gains made since the end of September. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY drops back from 50-day SMA The week began with fresh gains for USD/JPY after Friday’s recovery, pushing back to the 50-day SMA for the first time since November. The steady move lower since November has not seen much in the way of a rebound, so now sellers will wait to see how far this bounce goes. Moves higher in December stalled around ¥134.40, so if this can be cleared then the 200-day SMA comes into view. A reversal back below ¥131.00 could suggest that a lower high has been created, and that a move towards the January lows around ¥127.70 is now in progress. Source: ProRealTime
