Why Trade CFDs?
A CFD, or contract for difference, is a security that allows two parties to exchange the difference between the opening and closing price of a contract. These agreements allow the two parties to settle the final contract using cash, instead of physical goods or securities. This approach frequently makes settlement easier.
By trading CFDs, investors can receive all the benefits associated with owning a security without actually possessing that security. Investors can harness these contracts to take long or short positions, speculating on the underlying asset's future price movements. Alternatively, they can use these contracts to hedge their portfolios, helping to manage different kinds of risk such as downside risk.
These contracts also provide leverage, allowing investors to potentially generate more robust returns. Investors who trade these contracts using leverage may only have to put up a small fraction of the contract's cost, so they can potentially generate a stronger return on investment. Harnessing leverage can also allow investors to trade CFDs with a much smaller capital outlay. VIG offers up to 400:1 leverage on forex and up to 200:1 on commodities and indices. Investors should keep in mind that leverage is a double-edged sword. While it can greatly amplify one's profits, it can also dramatically amplify their losses. Trading CFDs with any amount of leverage may not be suitable for all investors.
CFD trading comes with low fees. When buying, a trader pays the ask price. When selling or taking a short position, a trader pays the bid price. The spread between these two is generally fixed, and its size depends on the volatility of the underlying asset.
NO STAMP DUTY:
When trading CFDs, investors are not obligated to pay a stamp duty, because these contracts are a type of derivative. As a result, investors that opt to trade CFDs may avoid the generating the tax liability they would incur by trading other securities. Investors should keep in mind that tax laws can change. Because every trader has unique circumstances, they may want to speak with an appropriate tax professional to get clarity on any questions.
Another benefit of CFDs is that these securities trade 24 hours a day, five days a week. Even if an underlying markets is closed – the stock market, for example – an investor can still trade CFDs based on major stock market indices.
While CFDs offer investors all the benefit associated with owning a security without actually having to possess it, they also come with all the risk associated with holding that security. CFDs offer traders the ability to use significant amounts of leverage, but leverage can dramatically amplify losses.
