Investors are increasingly looking to Contracts for Difference (CFDs) as a more flexible method of trading stocks online.

CFD trading is carried out on live prices on Alpha Capital International’s online trading platforms, without the delays of normal stock trading, such as waiting for fills from the stock exchange.

With Alpha Capital International, clients gain access to online CFD trading in all major US, European and Asia/Pacific Stocks, as well as Index-tracking CFDs that follow major global indices. Online CFD trading is a versatile method of trading in bull and bear markets, allowing hedging of current Stock investments and even the potential for profit in a falling market.
