Stockhome CFD Trading

What are CFDs?

A CFD is a contract for difference. It is a form of financial instrument that allows you to invest on a global asset without purchasing the asset itself.

CFDs are a simple, flexible and transparent form of online trade. When you open a CFD trade on an asset, your goal is to profit from changes to its market price.

Your profits are calculated as the difference between the asset price when you open a position, and the asset’s price when you close the position.

Stockhome traders can boost their investments on individual assets by up to x200 using leverage.

The use of leverage allows you to increase your market exposure and potentially earn higher profits with a smaller initial investment. One of the big attractions of CFDs is their simplicity.

You can open a CFD trade on an underlying asset either as a Buy or a Sell position.

BUY - If you expect an asset price to rise open a BUY position.

SELL - If you expect an asset price to fall open a SELL position.


A Typical CFD Trade

You buy USD 250 with Euros. After a week, you exchange the dollars back to euros, making a profit of $75.

How is this possible?

When you first bought the $250 a week ago, the USD market price was 0.9 EUR. Now, the USD market price is 1.2 EUR. This 0.3 price movement earned you $75.

You profited by following the basic market principle of buying the dollars at a low rate and selling them back at a higher rate. If you had leveraged your initial investment your profits would have increased in direct proportion to the leverage that you used.

$250 x 200 leverage = $50,000.

$50,000 x 0.3 price movement = $15,000

If you correctly predicted the market performance of the asset, you may make substantial profits, particularly if your trade is leveraged. If your investment does not succeed, you may lose part or all of your invested capital.

You will never be subjected to any further debts or liabilities.
