What are the benefits to trading CFDs?

Leverage up to 200:1
  • Compared to physical shares, CFDs require considerably less capital to open a trade.
  • With Leverage up to 200:1 it provides many people access to markets they previously could not have traded due to funding requirements.
  • Not only are the capital requirements low but the transaction fee to open a trade (or the spread) is also very low.
 
Swap-free
  • If you trade forex you may have noticed something called Swaps, which is effectively interest. Although some pairs do pay swap many charge you swap to hold a position overnight, depending on the direction you are trading. With CFDs you do not have to worry about swaps… you will not be charged for holding a position overnight.
  • This is particularly good for position traders who tend to hold positions for weeks at a time.

 



What are the benefits to trading forex?


24-hour market
  • The advantage of a 24 hour market is it allows you to fit FX around your lifestyle, as opposed to trying to fit your lifestyle around your chosen market. If you work full time then you would probably not make a very good day-trader in the stock market. However by having access to multiple markets around the world and around the clock you can choose a market to suit you.
  • Due to FX being available 24hrs there is no period of time (other than over weekends) when the market is actually closed or unable to trade. This means gaps tend not to appear on higher timeframes (such as daily, weekly, monthly) during the weekdays as there are always participants trading. This is unlike the Stock Market which has an open and close every trading day, and often prices open at a completely different price to the previous close which will have an effect on your profit/loss if you hold a trade overnight.
 

Most liquid market
  • Liquidity basically refers to an ability to buy or sell a product. The least liquid asset you can buy or sell would be property, as it can take a long time to match a buyer and a seller. On the other end of the scale is the Forex market - it is the most liquid market available to trade. You can enter and exit an FX transaction in the matter of seconds (and sometimes milliseconds) and there will always be a buyer to sell to, or a seller to buy from.
 

Leverage up to 500:1
  • With leverage up to 500:1 it provides many people access to markets they previously could not have traded due to funding requirements.
  • Not only are the capital requirements low but the transaction fee to open a trade (or the spread) is also very low.
  • Without leverage you would not be able to open a trading account for 200 units because (to your typical retail trader) you would not be able to afford the deposit required to speculate on FX.
