CFD Trading with SM-INVEST

Global trading opportunities

CFD trading can be a high risk activity and may be banned in your jurisdiction.

A CFD or Contract for Difference is an agreement between two parties to the trade (Seller and Buyer) to exchange the difference in value between the opening and closing price for a particular asset without owning the asset. The trade opening price is the current fair price when the trade is made, and similarly the trade’s closing price would be the current fair price for the asset on close.

Put simply, a CFD is a contract between you and the market price. You can choose the Symbol you want to trade and enter a sell or buy Trade. They work like any other Symbol for trading but require more markets knowledge on the Symbol you are trading to increase taking profits and to reduce losses. They are regarded as higher risk than Forex due to sudden price changes based on market activity, news, speculation, and more complex supply and demand participants in the market. When a Trade is opened the CFD Symbol traded is based on a product from a variety of regulated global exchanges (shares, commodities, indices, energies, commodities, etc). CFDs usually have specific session times for Trading just like the underlying symbol from the exchange and this should be noted. CFDs are leveraged products which allow you to take more profit by examining opportunities across global markets.

CFD rising market trade example

Let’s assume you buy 100 CFD contract on SM-INVEST for Microsoft (MSFTUS) shares at $98 per share. A CFD contract on Microsoft consists of 1 share. Now Microsoft shares go up to $100 and you close your position. Your profit is (100-98)*100 = $200.

CFD falling market trade example

Let’s assume you sell 100 CFD contact on SM-INVEST for Microsoft (MSFTUS) shares at $100 per share. The CFD contract is the same as previous example. Now Microsoft shares go down to $95 and you close your position. Your profit is (100-95)*100 = $500.

CFDs give you the opportunity to keep on taking profits no matter which way the global markets are heading.
