Who is a dealer?

Dealers are individuals or companies that buy and sell securities for their personal accounts. Just like ordinary traders, they buy securities at a lower bid price and sell them at a higher ask price. However, for dealers this is part of their regular business. They set these prices on their own even though the actual market price of assets may be quite different. Dealers are important for the trading market as they encourage its liquidity and keep the spread between bid prices and ask prices in check.

Regulating Dealers

Due to the nature of dealing activities, there’s a chance that some dealers may take advantage of traders by marking up ask prices. So in order to avoid this, many countries have agencies regulating dealing, such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Dealers vs Brokers

You can use the services of both parties in order to buy or sell assets on the trading market. The difference is that brokers don’t buy securities for their personal accounts. They arrange deals between sellers and buyers and get a commission from such deals.

Dealers, on the other hand, trade the securities they own. They make a profit from the difference between a bid price and an ask price. This means that their goal is to sell securities for a high price. Despite this, their services are useful when you need to sell or buy securities as soon as possible.
