PlusMarkets adds ETF CFDs to its broad array of offerings
Leading global brokerage
firm, PlusMarkets, has added yet another tradable asset to its already vast
offerings. The firm now offers ETF CFDs, along with over 300 other trading
instruments. The NDD STP broker has earned the trust of traders across the
world with spreads starting as low as 0.1 pips and initial deposit of as little
already offers CFDs on a variety of tradable assets, including forex, global
indices, stocks and commodities. However, the brokerage realised that by
including Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in this list, they would give traders an
opportunity to diversify their portfolios seamlessly. Being investment funds
that track the performance of a group of instruments in a single market or a
group of markets, ETFs offer an effortless way to gain exposure to multiple assets
with a single investment.
Characteristics that Make ETFs Popular
institutional and retail traders have increasingly been turning to ETFs, not
just because they are incredibly easy to access, but also because the cost of
trading is low. For example, to buy shares in a particular company, traders
would need to invest huge capital to gain exposure to just one stock. Whereas
with ETFs, they gain exposure to an entire segment, such as technology stocks.
ETFs, traded as
contracts for difference (CFDs), allow traders to maximise their exposure
through the availability of leverage. They can choose to scale their market
exposure, without having to worry about funding the entire investment with the
capital in their trading account. While leverage can magnify profits, it can
also magnify losses and should be used responsibly. Also, since traders are
speculating only on price direction, rather than taking ownership of the
underlying assets, they can trade both rising and falling markets.
characteristic that sets ETFs apart is that they tend to be very liquid. This
means that traders will find a counter-party to their trades whenever they wish
to enter or exit a position.
