LEARN ABOUT CFD TRADING

How do CFDs work?

As a trader, you can invest money and take a price position in the market. If the price of the instrument (such as an FX pair) changes according to your prediction, you profit. Otherwise you lose.

What are the benefits of CFDs?

Brokers provide leverage to their clients through 'margin trading' This means that traders might enter the market with greater holdings than their real stake. Furthermore, unlike other investing approaches, your possibilities of success are not dependent on asset valuation. You can profit from a price fall by taking a short position (selling). Finally, there are less constraints and barriers to market access.

What are the disadvantages of CFDs?

Margin trading is risky as the markets are volatile and require close monitoring. With sharp price movements, you might lose the margin necessary to keep a position open. FairMarkets offers stop loss mechanism and regularly warns clients to protect against such erratic movements.

What exactly is CFD trading?

It is an abbreviation for 'Contract for Difference.' The 'contract' in this case is between you, the investor, and the broker (us). The term "difference" refers to the fluctuating price of a trading tool.  You may speculate on the price movement of any market without holding any assets. You make profit if the price of the instrument (for example, an FX pair) moves as predicted. Otherwise, you're out.
