OTC US Stocks

When talking about equities we're specifically talking about the trading of stocks or shares of publicly-traded companies from around the world such as Microsoft, Boeing or Pfizer. When individuals buy stocks or shares in these companies it defines the amount of interest a person holds in ownership in a corporation. Equity can also be defined as the monetary value of a property or business beyond any amounts owed on it in mortgages, claims or liens. One will find that the terms stocks and shares are used interchangeably when talking about the topic and this is because they have very similar meanings – simply put a stock in a corporation is represented by shares. The way these terms are used comes down to syntax rather than a financial or legal definition.

Unlike traditional stock trading, at ICM Capital we provide our clients with the opportunity to trade equities though the price movements of CFD trading (contract for difference). A CFD is merely a contract between two entities, such as a buyer and a seller. When applied to equities, such as the ones below this type of contract allows traders to speculate on the movement of a specific share price, without actually having ownership of the share in question.

ICM Capital offers the following major US Stocks for trading:

  • 3M Company 
  • American International Group
  • Apple
  • Boeing Corp
  • Caterpillar Inc.
  • Citigroup Inc.
  • General Electric Co
  • Google
  • International Business Machines
  • Microsoft Corporation
  • Pfizer Inc.
  • Walt Disney Company

CFD trading with ICM Capital is speedy and straightforward but most importantly it removes the need to trade through a stock broker. With a CFD contract unlike with Spot Forex, you are not trading per pip movement of the share price but you are buying or selling a fixed amount of CFDs which is comparable to a number of shares. It is important to remember no physical share transaction takes place during this process.

CFDs are available to trade in following countries: United Kingdom, Hong Kong, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Singapore, South Africa, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, France, Ireland, Japan and Spain. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission do not permit CFD trading in the United States.

While using higher leverage can significantly increase your profits, it equally can work against you as it involves greater risks to your capital. If the currency underlying one of your trades moves in leverage will greatly amplify your potential losses. It is possible for you to lose more than your initial deposit so please ensure CFD trading meets your investment objectives and seek independence advice and trading style that includes the use of stop and limit orders.
