Online CFD Trading: Why It Is Growing

 

One of the current trends that’s growing right now is online CFD trading. Here are some of the reasons why this method of financial transaction and engagement is rapidly gaining traction in the world that we live in.

1) Online CFD Trading Allows Leverage and Margin

Probably the best thing about online CFD trading is that your established margin deposit gives you the capability to control and use an asset that’s many times higher than its actual value. When this happens, the impact of trading exponentially grows and the profit for it becomes significantly higher. With a minimal investment, traders can immediately multiply their capital and grow rich.

 

Of course, that comes with a caveat. The higher the gains are, the higher chances of large losses. However, instead of turning off traders, this has actually become appealing for them, since it requires them to be better prepared and to make better decisions.

2) Users Feel That it’s More Cost Efficient

One of the benefits of online CFD trading is that they are just agreements that were designed to mimic price movements. They are not actual assets. As such, the tax given to them is not that high, compared to real assets. Unlike the more traditional transactions, stamp taxes are not implemented, and since there are no physical assets that change hands, the relative tax is much smaller and the regulatory burdens are minimized.

In addition, there’s virtually no commission, so fixed prices and payments are taken out of consideration.

It is also important to note that since all of these are documents, there’s no transportation of the assets, which is in itself another minimized costs.

Never Trade Freedom for Debt

Never Trade Freedom for Debt

Is Money Tight Right Now? Stop adding New Debt.

Hello readers its that time to discuss again the trap that people place themselves in every time they sign a new contract involving debt. When you stop and think about past choices it really is simple, try to do your best to never borrow again unless you want to live indebted forever. Just the other day I read a blog post by Derek over at lifeandmyfinances and he is now living life completely debt free for over a year now. He is an inspiration and an example of a life we all should try to realize 1 day. I believe it’s necessary for my sanity to never trade freedom for debt.

Granted it might feel like a never ending battle in this modern society with a constant emphasis on living with payments and debt. I will tell you that it can be done and to never ever have a defeatist attitude towards your financial insecurities. When you expect failure from the beginning, I guess the path towards reaching  prosperity will not be possible. Getting into debt was a choice way back in a moment in time, so why can’t the choice today be made to reverse those bad actions. By not conforming to the norm you will elevate yourself to a term many people don’t use today.(Financially Responsible)

How Does Social Trading Affect Your Portfolio?

How Does Social Trading Affect Your Portfolio?

Social trading is one of the best things to happen to an investor. This growing trend combines the aspects of social media with that of a broker, making it much easier to buy, sell and trade. Using social trading, binary options can be an easy way for new investors to get started since it allows people to engage in an active community, rather than having to research on their own. Social trading can also help seasoned investors perfect their skills learn more about the market and eventually make more money.

Learn from the Best Investors
One of the biggest advantages to socially trading is transparency. Users can easily see what their more successful peers are doing and choose to copy their actions. This allows beginners to learn quickly from some of the best investors, rather than struggle to figure out which companies to invest in on their own.

Different Platforms, Different Features
Much like social media, there are a wide range of networks aimed at investors. Each on has its own advantages and disadvantages, so there is no perfect platform. The benefit of having so many choices is that it makes it easier for investors to find something that works for them and suits their needs. Most of the platforms available will offer one of these features:

What Can you Buy with Dividends

What Can you Buy with Dividends?

This post idea came to my mind as I was washing dishes, and I thought of at least 10 things I can buy with dividends. What can you buy with dividends? Well it depends if you actually are in a position to receive them. If you are like some people who believe the government will take all our investments, then you clearly don’t invest in the stock market. What can you buy with dividends is the topic of the hour and I love this topic.

Lets play a little game and think of the possibilities available for the investor who can successfully receive 5 thousand in dividends and doesn’t need the additional income to live off of. Now you can visualize all the fun you can have with an extra 5K annually.

MLK Day and Contentment

MLK day and contentment

As I think back when I was a young boy all the memories come back at random occasions, and a flashback is replaying itself in real time. Have you ever had one of these moments when you look back as if you had a Delorean that actually went back in time. The memories are the only thing we really need to recreate the past. On this special day we celebrate Martin Luther King Day and how content we all should really be. Could we improve every year of course, but at times let’s appreciate the present and how far we’ve come. Today is MLK day and contentment is something not spoken about often enough.

Every year I think about my dreams and how as a kid on this special day we were told stories about a man who wanted more for our society regarding equality. The we have a dream speech was replayed every year since I can remember and it has evolved every year. We all can and should do more to uplift one another in a positive way. Also we need more realistic communications about how to live life in a financially responsible manner. This is a personal finance site so I will now steer the topic back to finances and to make the final point.
