CFDs; Such as stocks, bonds, indices or commodities. The sources of CFD contracts, which can be processed more easily and with lower capital, can be various financial assets.
It is an investment instrument that allows you to invest in future expectations of the underlying product without having a financial product with low collateral, by connecting lower collateral than the underlying product.
At the same time, CFDs, which are an easy investment tool, are also preferred and fast because of the need for fewer collateral, allowing investors to benefit from small price changes.
CFD products are divided into futures and demand. There are no maturities in underlying assets in demand contracts. In some demand CFD products, although the underlying asset is futures, the product may be traded on demand. The difference in the CFD products in this case will be reflected to the investor as transportation cost.
WHAT IS CFD BASED ON SHARES?
Futures CFD contracts are term contracts with a starting and ending date of which is known. You can trade as much as you want in the maturity. If your position is still open when the due date is reached, it is automatically closed by the system.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF CFD?
It enables you to gain access to all indexes, precious metals and commodities on a single platform, easily and profitably from both the rise and fall of the market.
We can explain it in two ways.
In addition to trading a profit or a return, foreign exchange trading can be used to hedge a stock portfolio. For example, if you set up a portfolio of shares in a country with a potential to raise the value of a share, but a risk of insolvency in currency, such as in the recent US, then a trader may own the share. Create a portfolio and shorten the Swiss franc or euro To sell futures. In this way, the portfolio value will increase and the negative impact of the falling dollar will be significant. This is true for investors outside the United States who take their earnings back to their own currency.
A second approach to transaction currencies is to understand baselines and long-term benefits when a currency advances in a particular direction and provides a positive interest rate differential that provides a value in the currency value of the return of the investment. This type of trade is known as “transport trade”.
For example, a trader can take the Australian Dollar against the Japanese Yen. When the original of this article is published, the Japanese interest rate is 0.05%, the most recently reported Australian interest rate is 4.75%, so a trader can earn 4% in this trade.
Nevertheless, such a positive interest should be seen in the real exchange rate context of the AUD / JPY before the decision of interest is given. If the Australian dollar is strengthening against the yen, it would be appropriate to hold the AUD / JPY to gain both the appreciation of the currency and the yield of interest.
