Financial Instruments


With AvaTrade you can trade currencies, stocks, commodities, indices and bonds.




The foreign exchange market is by far the largest financial market in the world with on average $5 trillion traded a day. The majority of currencies traded are the majors, namely, U.S. Dollar, Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound, Swiss Franc, Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar and New Zealand Dollar. There is also many other currencies traded with AvaTrade offering over 60 currency pairs.




These would include the buying and selling of shares in such companies as Coca Cola, Google, Apple, Microsoft, BP and Vodafone. While currencies trade 24 hours a day, the stock market opens and closes from Monday to Friday. The opening and closing times depend on which market the stock is traded. For instance BP is on the UK FTSE 100 at 8.00am to 4.30pm GMT. You can trade Apple shares on the U.S. NASDAQ at 9.30am to 4.00pm U.S. Eastern Standard Time.




Commodities include energies, metals and agricultural resources. The most commonly traded are oil, gold, silver, coffee, wheat and corn. The trading price comes from either the exchange they are traded on e.g. Crude Oil Barrel on the NYMEX or their spot price e.g. Gold. In recent times there has been explosive growth in commodities trading due to the market opportunities derived from global economic and political uncertainty.




Indices are the combined value of top traded stocks and shares in respective markets. For instance, in the UK the top 100 shares index is the FTSE 100. There are many other indices but the top are the most stable to trade. The top indices in the U.S. are the Dow Jones Industrial Average (Top 30 companies), the NASDAQ for technology shares and the S&P 500 for the top 500 companies. AvaTrade offers the top indices across the world which also includes smaller exchanges including Sweden, South Africa, India, Taiwan and Hong Kong.




The least traded instruments by retail traders are bonds. A bond is a formal contract to repay borrowed money with interest at fixed intervals. A government bond is a bond issued by a national government in its own currency. The Euro zone also offers its own Euro bond. When trading bonds you are taking a view on the interest rate rising or falling usually as a result of various factors such as current market interest rates, the length of the term and the creditworthiness of the issuer.
