Equity Trading


Definition: Equity Trading is the activity of buying and selling company stock shares, typically through stock exchanges which serve as managed auctions for stock trades (in case of large publicly traded companies) or though over-the-counter (OTC) markets (in case of smaller public companies).
ET can be performed by the owner of the shares ('Proprietary Trading'), or by an agent authorized to buy and sell on behalf of the share's owner ('Agency Trading').
