CFD trading, unlike traditional investment, is not about buying anything. With the old form of investment, money was made through the usual channels of buying something and then waiting until the time was right to sell it at a higher price, thus making a profit. With binary options trading, things are much more flexible. Rather than buying something to sell, a trade is made on the speculation of how the asset’s price will perform. So, rather than buying stocks at $20, hoping to sell them later, a binary options trader makes a call” trade stating that the price of the stock will go up by at least $2 during the trading period. If the price goes up to $22 or higher, the trader makes a profit.
Trading Foreign Exchange and Contracts for Difference (CFDs) is highly speculative and may not be suitable for all investors. JFD Brokers offers to trade on margin. The leverage created by trading on margin can work against you as well as for you. Only invest money you can afford to lose and ensure that you fully understand the risks involved. Seek independent advice if necessary and review our Risk Disclosure and Privacy Disclosure before opening an account.

However, a number of caveats apply. Firstly, ordinary traders may well make a profit in one particular quarter only to lose a lot more in another. Certainly, the study of Taiwanese day traders suggests only a tiny minority maintain their outperformance. Secondly, there is a survivorship bias. The US profitability stats only look at accounts that were active in a particular quarter, so those who deleted their accounts in a prior quarter will not appear in the figures.
