As such, product prices via this method may or may not reflect their actual prices in the market thus causing some reason for concern amongst its clients. The providers may also allow operations outside the normal market hours thus adding a further level of flexibility to its customers. Records of contracts purchased may also not be displayed in the open market as they are added into the provider’s own order books. The alternative method is the direct market access to address concerns in matching of prices between purchased contracts and market settings. As contracts are purchased from the CFD brokers, they are also reflected in the market’s order books for all to see.
Depending on the nature of contract taken up by the buyers, they are able to earn dividends or interests so long as the market behaves according to their CFD trading predictions. Since this form of trading exposes investors to risks of high losses, investors are recommended to take up options to limit a bad hammering in case of unexpected market movements. In the event accumulated losses reach a certain level, the contracts automatically end to arrest further deficit.
In the event the trading is carried out on margins, the buyer is given an opportunity for higher earnings. However, it may be offset by interest charges imposed by the broker as long as the contract is effective. This explains why the motto for CFD trading is to get in and out as quickly as possible with whatever profits earned in the contract’s lifespan.
