Flexibility: Trade on both rising and falling markets through long and short positions.
Accessibility: Trade anywhere 24/5 by connecting your Eightcap account to the TradingView app.
Diversification: Spread investments across various sectors and markets.
Cost: Speculate on the price of shares paying just the spread and a small commission, plus a swap rate for overnight positions.
Hedging: A particularly useful advantage during earnings seasons and other economic events; traders can use a second CFD to cover their initial position, before closing one of their positions as the momentum develops, aiming to take profit in the direction of the prevailing trend.
Stock CFDs vs. Traditional Stock Investing
