A Brand-New Way to Trade and Invest
What are CFDs?
CFDs (Contracts for Difference) are a type of a tradable instrument that allows you to speculate on live market price movements without actually owning the underlying asset on which the contract is based. This unique method lets you create an agreement to exchange the difference between the opening price and the closing price of the traded asset. The difference multiplied by the position size determines the profit or loss.
The overall idea is quite simple:
Select an asset and choose to go long (BUY), if you think the market price will rise or go short (SELL), if you think the market price will fall. You can make profit in the event that the market moves in your favor, regardless if it’s an up trend or a down trend.
As a rule, a “BUY” price (ask) will always be slightly higher than a “SELL” price (bid) , while the actual market price of the tradable asset will be somewhere in the middle. The difference between the “BUY” and “SELL” prices is called “spread”.
CFDs are considered as a leveraged product (up to x200 leverage with the Cmarket platform). What it means is that you are able to trade with only a small portion of the total value of your trade and still be able to maximize your returns.
The price of silver is rising, but you think it will soon drop.
You open a SELL position on silver (5 ounces) at $660 an ounce (the bid price).
5 x $660 = $3,300
The contract is leveraged on a 1:50 ratio:
$3,300 : 50 = $66
This means you need at least $66 in your trading account (initial margin) in order to open this position.
Silver then drops $20 in value. You manually close the position and earn:
$20 x 5 (ounces) = $100
Your profit is $100
At no point did you actually buy any silver. You simply invested on the commodity’s market performance.
Advantages of CFD trading
CFD trading allows you to open several trades simultaneously while using quite a small amount of capital. This trading method carries no hidden fees or commissions to a third party.
Unlike other traditional forms of trading, there is no requirement to actually own the traded asset. This eliminates the need for any paperwork or contractual agreements with brokerage firms/banks.
You can simply register by providing your info, make a minimum deposit in a segregated trading account and start trading.
Leverage gives you the ability to open a trading position while using only a fraction of its total value. Doing so, allows you to control larger trade sizes and to magnify your overall returns.
As a CFD trader, you get access to all 3 major markets – stocks, commodities and indices. The opportunity to trade on such a wide variety of markets and assets provides you with the foundation to build a balanced and strong trading portfolio.
You can set your exposure level by adjusting the “stop loss/take profit” parameters. This standard feature will automatically close any open positions if the price either drops or rises beyond a predetermined point, thus locking in profits and minimizing losses.
Trading in CFDs gives you the ability to produce profits, regardless of the asset’s market price direction. You can open a “SELL” position and profit as the asset drops in price.
