Shares are a popular investment product largely due to the amount of information available when trading them. Companies release quarterly earnings and news outlets cover company news closely. Shares also tend to be less volatile than other CFD markets, making them a good option for more risk-averse traders. CFD Shares traders aren’t obligated to own the underlying asset, meaning they can benefit from both the upwards and downwards movement of the asset’s price.

What our Traders say about us

When can you trade CFDs?

CFD trading hours differ greatly from instrument class to instrument class – the opening, closing and times markets take breaks can greatly affect the price of your favorite instrument. This is why it is extremely important to know those times. Find out when your preferred markets are open, closed or just taking a break at our Trading Hours Page.

4 Advantages of Trading CFDs

  • Unlike stock trading, there is always a buyer and a seller meaning you are never left holding an asset.
  • There are opportunities to earn under any market conditions – whether they’re rising or falling.
  • Flexibility allows traders to take a more diverse approach to their trading so they may take advantage of whichever market is trending at any one moment.
  • Leveraged trading means you may aim for higher returns with a smaller investment. However, leverage magnifies potential loss as well as returns.
Risk Management Tools

Like all financial products, CFD trading does involve risks of losing your invested funds. The markets can be volatile and make unexpected moves. And where leverage may magnify profit-potential it may also magnify losses. At easyMarkets we recommend you familiarize yourself with the risks of trading CFDs and we’ve also developed some tools to help you manage them.
