CFD trading — get access to major stock markets online

Potential profit with stocks of major companies that you use every day

Imagine yourself being a shareholder of Facebook or Gazprom. Each day of holding a CFD brings you tangible earnings from asset growth; moreover, with CFDs on US stocks you can earn dividends! There are no costs arising from acquisition and ownership of the assets. You can hold your assets for many years without any fees and with no need to perform any additional transactions. When the market is highly liquid, you can sell the assets and withdraw the accumulated earnings.

You can earn income on the difference between the share prices of major international companies such as Apple, Facebook, Google, or Microsoft. You also have the opportunity to benefit from CFDs for shares of VTB, Gazprom, Lukoil, Sberbank, and many other core companies of the Russian economy with high growth potential. In addition, CFDs on commodity market products, including oil, gold, silver, copper and major stock indices, such as Dow Jones, DAX, NASDAQ, S&P, as well as other dynamic instruments are at your disposal. Contracts for Difference (CFD) provide an investment opportunity for amounts starting at $100 by using leverage of 1:20 from Alfa-Forex.

Example of CFD deal for BRENT oil

Oil prices are extremely sensitive to the news: data on reserves in the U.S., statistics of world consumption, geopolitics in the middle East and OPEC actions always cause high volatility.

Consider the profit potential for Brent oil: on March 22, the oil reserves in the U.S. were significantly higher than analysts had expected. Increasing the reserves means a decrease in demand and the price of oil logically reacted with a decrease to the level at 49.67 – at least for the last few months. But then the tensions in Syria and the fear of supply restriction began to push the market up and, by April 12, the price reached $ 56.61 per barrel.

Potential profit of 135% for less than a month

Let us assume that you bought 2 lots of Brent oil for $9 934 when the oil price dropped to $49.67 (1 lot is equal to 100 barrels). When the asset price rose to $56.61 per barrel, your lots were worth $11 322. If you had closed the position, you could have received $1 388 from that deal. However, if the prices dropped below $49.67, the deal could have resulted in losses.
