Default Forex or CFDs: What to Trade ?



Today, opening a Forex brokerage account is about much more than trading currencies. With more and more brokers offering an increasingly wide range of assets beyond currency pairs, it is easy to either feel like a kid in a candy store, or completely overwhelmed. These states of mind can be unhealthy for you and your trading account, so it pays to take a closer look at what your broker ? or your next Forex broker ? is putting on the table.

Similarities of CFDs and Forex
CFD trading and Forex trading have many similarities. First, both types of trading involve a similar trade execution process. Traders can easily enter or exit the market in both rising and falling markets. Second, both CFD trades and Forex trades are executed on the same platform, using similar looking charts and pricing methods. In both cases, trades are executed in the over-the-counter (OTC) market, which is run entirely electronically within a network of banks, with no physical location or central exchange. Another similarity between CFD trading and Forex trading is that the only cost of trading is the spread, as opposed to other types of trading instruments that charge commissions and other finance fees.

The primary similarity between CFD trading and forex trading is that neither entitles the trader to actual ownership of the underlying asset. When one buys EURAUD, for instance, one is not actually purchasing euros and selling Australian dollars; rather the trader is simply speculating on the exchange rate. Likewise, when a trader purchases a CFD contract on the FTSE 100, the trader is not actually owning the stocks in the FTSE index, but rather is speculating on its underlying price. In many ways, forex is simply another kind of CFD.

Difference between Forex and CFDs

Range of Markets
CFD trading spans a larger set of financial markets, as these contracts can involve various commodities or equity indices of several countries. Some brokers even offer CFDs on stocks traded in different exchanges, opening a very wide realm of trade opportunities!

Compared to spot forex trading which is limited to the currency market, CFD trading does seem to offer a much broader array of trading choices. Bear in mind though that some assets are often limited to their local denomination (ex: S&P 500 against USD or shares of Royal Dutch Petroleum against GBP).

Price Factors
Factors that affect price movement in CFD trading depends on the markets in which the asset is part of. For instance, crude oil CFD prices are mostly driven by supply and demand or by seasonality. Prices of equity CFDs can be determined by business factors or company-specific events, such as earnings or acquisitions.

Meanwhile, price movements in the spot forex market are mostly influenced by fundamental factors, such as economic growth and monetary policy expectations. Risk sentiment also plays a role in currency price action, along with geopolitical tension and to an extent, environmental factors.

Trade Execution
CFD and forex trades are generally executed in the same manner in an OTC market under a decentralized exchange. Both types of trading don?t involve the physical transfer of the assets, as profit or loss are calculated based on the opening and closing prices. Because of these similarities, several brokers actually offer platforms that cater to both CFD and spot forex trading.

Margin
Both spot forex trades and CFD trades make use of margin, with the former generally quoted through a leverage ratio (ex: 1:100 or 1:10) and the latter stated as a fixed percentage (ex: 1% or 5% margin factor).

Trade Costs
With forex trading, transaction costs are generally based on the bid-ask spread quoted by the broker. In CFD trading, transaction costs can involve commissions, which vary depending on the underlying asset. The costs of trading equity CFDs are still generally lower compared to purchasing actual shares while index-based CFDs don?t usually carry commission costs.

CFD positions held open overnight can also incur overnight financing costs, which consists of a daily charge based on the size of the contract and often linked to LIBOR or central bank benchmark rates. With that, trades kept open for much longer are subject to increasing interest charges, which can wind up eating a huge chunk of your trade returns. On the other hand, financing costs on short CFD positions are typically received by the trader.

Brokers offering commodity CFDs usually have the futures market as the basis for their contract pricing, which means that there may be expiry dates and settlement costs as well. The broker can arrange an automatic rollover when the settlement date of the associated futures contract is reached or deduct a cash settlement fee from the CFD position, which could also significantly reduce profits if you keep the trade open for a long time.

If you are considering trying your hand in CFD trading, it is recommended that you work with markets that you are more or less familiar with. As with forex trading, you might be better off playing with a demo account first before risking real money in a relatively unfamiliar territory.
