Ownership of the asset
|When you invest in a financial instrument, such as stocks, bonds or ETF, you buy it and take full ownership of it
|With CFDs, you are speculating on the price movements of an underlying asset without taking ownership of the asset itself.
|With traditional investing, you pay the full price of the asset upfront.
|Because CFDs are derivatives traded on margin, often referred to as leverage, when you open a position, you put down only a fraction of the price of that asset
|When you invest in an asset, you add it to your portfolio. You can later on sell it and realize a profit or loss depending on the changes in the market
|CFD trading enables you to profit from both rising and falling markets. In other words, you can take a "long" position (buy) when you anticipate the price will increase or a "short" position (sell) when you expect the price to decline. Please note there is no guarantee that trading will result in profits or not result in losses.
Short/Long term strategy
|Investing on the other hand is considered a long-term strategy, aiming to generate returns over an extended period of time.
|CFD trading is often used as short-term strategy focused on taking advantage of both raising and falling markets
