Direct Equities:

Investors can invest by either going long or holding the stock by purchasing it in full. For the investor to purchase the stock they should first analyze the company’s risk and return as well as their own goals and overall financial health before investing in the long term. Another option is to swing trade by catching the trend either long or short to earn profit based on volumes. Further, another option while inviting in the equities is to intra-trade in the stock, here you will not be required to invest 100% of the stock price, the margin investment will be depending on the stock and the brokerage through which the investor is investing. On average 30% of the stock price is the margin requirement either on the long or the short side of the trade. In this case, the trade needs to be settled with that trading session itself. The problem with investing directly through equities for swing trading and intraday is the cost I.e., the brokerage cost, taxes, and the leverage is lower as compared to other instruments.


It is a contract where two or more parties I.e., the buyer, the seller, and the value are derived from the value of the performance of the underlying asset or entity. It can be equity, asset, or an index. Derivatives include futures, options, forwards, and swaps. In these contracts, the margin required for trading is comparatively less than that of the equity intraday. But there is a minimum margin requirement for the contracts. These are leveraged products where traders can earn profits based on the trend and volumes as well as news. In futures and options contracts, the loss is not necessarily limited to the initial investment and there is no embedded stop-loss mechanism to curb the loss if the price goes in the opposite direction of the expected trade. Since derivatives are leveraged, investments there is some inherent risk involved while investing. Investors must analyze the market trends as well as technical before trading through derivatives.

Leverage ETPs:

It is like derivatives that attempts to multiply the returns using the underlying index and single stocks. Leveraged and inverse ETPs mark returns based on the daily performance of the underlying index as well as single stocks. Leveraged ETPs usually have a multiplier in their name on the contract like 3x or words such as ‘ultra’ or ‘daily’. These ETPs attempt to deliver the multiples of the index or stock’s return daily (positive or negative). The 3x are the multiplier of returns on both the upside and the downside based on the underlying asset. Inverse ETPs are negative numbers like -3x or the term like short or inverse in their names. These ETPs move in the opposite direction of the underlying index. People can also invest in a basket of popular single stocks called FANG, GAFAM, and FATANG
Leveraged ETPs have a minimum investment of just one share and in terms of transparency as well as risk it is less compared to the derivatives contract. Investors trading on indexes or some single stocks can opt for ETP trading to earn returns for short-term trading. The ETPs also have an embedded stop-loss option to curb the losses if the trend goes south.

Investors can choose various investment options to earn profits on the Apple stock based on the trends and technical analysis as well as global macro-economic factors affecting the stock prices. Apple has been one of the top names in the technology sector and it plays a huge role in the broader markets.
