At Stellar Finance, we are proud to bring traders a comprehensive list of assets across four asset classes. These are stocks, commodities, currencies and indices. In general, financial assets are traded during the daytime business hours of the country of origin. However, because we offer over 200 of the world’s most popular assets, there is always something to trade on our platform.
In addition to stocks, commodities like gold, oil and coffee are heavily traded on the financial markets. These are real-world resources changing hands so the trick to successful trading is to analyze the markets for strong trends. The value of a commodity is predominantly dictated by supply and demand levels.
It’s a well known fact that the foreign exchange market is the largest financial market in the world. After all, each day the market averages a trading volume of $3 trillion. This is a lot of money changing hands. To successfully trade with currencies, an understanding of the events that matter the most to the value of currency is needed.
Stocks like Tesla Inc, Vodafone and Amazon are amongst the most popularly traded financial assets in the world. This is because the value of individual company shares are always fluctuating in response to events such as quarterly earnings reports. This opens many trading opportunities for traders.
In contrast to stock trading, traders who speculate on the price movements of indices focus on a broader market perspective instead of analyzing separately quoted firms. The most popularly traded indices in the world include the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Nikkei 225 and S&P 500.
