Trading is the act of buying and selling financial assets for the purpose of making profit. You predict the price movement of the underlying asset by going long if you think the price will rise, or short if you think that it’ll fall.
You’ll get exposure through buying or selling different markets like shares, forex, commodities, and indices without taking ownership of the underlying asset.
With us, you can trade using CFDs. This is a popular way to trade because it’s more accessible than trading derivative products that are listed on an exchange.
