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.

Crude Oil: Progressing steadily on its upward trajectory, crude oil is set for further ascension.

    • The emergence of ICO and NFTs ushered in tokens as speculative assets. These were really attached with no use-cases beyond defi and collectibles. The next wave of tokenization seeks to bring forth experiences and token applications. These are set to be programmable and filled with user centric integration points. Smart tokens are set to usher in digital transformation, by bringing a paradigm shift from websites, to apps and to tokens. Tokenized services are set to transform user experience by rendering services where and when a consumer needs them. The core intent of the smart layer network is to bring real life use-cases to Web3, the project’s team firmly believes that, by infusing useable features into Web3 it will undoubtedly usher it mainstream. Critically looking at Smart Layer would expose that, after carefully and critically analyzing the existence of different token models, it is found that, there is truly no worthwhile use-case, thus the project seeks to curb the conundrum. In a bid to get a grasp of what smart tokens are, view it through the lens of how websites firstly started rendering digital services, then slowly evolving to apps. With Smart Layer, the focus is to empower tokens to do what websites and apps had hitherto done. The erstwhile services offered are set to be tokenized thus allowing them to be delivered when and where the consumer needs them and without requiring direct integrations. The Smart Layer Network native token $SLN is slated to be listed on bitget upon the satisfaction of certain criterion and prerequisite, deposit is however is currently opened. By depositing it on the CEX, the listing will be enabled and the token cast into further spotlight.
