What are CFDs?
CFDs (contracts for difference) are a flexible and highly convenient form of derivative investment that allows investors to trade on the rising or falling asset prices of fast-moving global financial markets – such as forex, stocks, commodities, indices and cryptocurrencies. The basic CFD trading principal is quite simple: Select any asset and choose to go long (BUY) if you predict the market price will rise, or go short (SELL) if you predict the market price will fall. Making a profit is possible either ways, whether it’s an up trend or a down trend movement.
With CFD trading, you don’t actually buy or sell any underlying assets. What you do is simply buy or sell a number of units for a particular financial instrument, depending on whether you think that its price will go up or down. When trading CFDs, you have the benefit of using leverage (up to x200 with the 4x.fm platform). Consequently, you can start your trading with a very small percentage of the total value of your trade and magnify your returns – no commissions or hidden fees involved.
As opposed to options or future contracts, CFDs do not have an expiry date and they are effectively renewed at the close of each trading day and rolled forward. Therefore, it is always a good idea to use a combination of fundamental analysis and technical analysis tools before deciding to enter a position. 4x.fm traders can enter into leveraged contracts on over 3,000 of the world’s top-class assets by opening a position at a specific price with complete transparency using our ground-breaking technology.
Why trade CFDs?
CFDs are the ideal option for many investors as you are not required to physically own the financial asset in question and therefore you can gain major investment exposure. CFDs are known to be quick and accessible, removing the need to trade through a stockbroker.
Because you are trading on margin, CFDs can enhance the return on your investment capital. What this means is that when you trade CFDs, you don’t have to put up the full value of the asset you are trading on.
Instead, you only need a small fraction of the total position value to open it and maintain the same level of exposure. By trading CFDs, you are able to gain access to all 5 major markets from the comfort of your home and significantly increase your profit opportunities when you open positions on various classes of financial assets.
