Hi guys,

One basic question: when you buy a share (for any company, in US, Canada or Europe) you buy a real share (and you own it)? Or do you buy "on leverage" without owning (like in forex)? For example, if I buy Amazon or Apple or Coca-Cola, will i own those share and be entitled to have dividends?

Thanks a lot!

This would depend on the account type you are referring to. Are you talking about leveraged accounts like CFD (or spread betting for the UK) or a share dealing account? 

On the leveraged offering you hold a contract on the price action.
On share dealing you own the stock, but via a custodian account model type. 

Let me know if you would like a further clarification.

Hi James, thanks a lot for these details.

If I understood this correctly, it means all shares are "dealing", right? Because CFDs are mostly about Forex or commodities, not shares. But I am 99% sure about this, not 100% :)

so let's say you choose Microsoft, or Coca-Cola, for example. You buy shares, you own them; correct?

And it there a ticker/sign/mark/whatever, to tell you when you select a share if it's 'dealing' or 'leverage'(contract)?

Hi @Britcoin,  the type of trade will depend on the account you are using to trade on, so trading shares on a share dealing account you will be buying/selling shares without leverage. To use leverage to buy/sell shares you will need a spread betting account or a CFD account.

Here is a 20 min video on leveraged accounts and the difference between them and non leveraged accounts.

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
