Besides forex, stocks are among the most popular assets to trade among independent traders. This is true both for traditional CFD traders and binary options traders. Many brokers on this list therefore offer stocks as underlying assets for binary options, while some offer them only in the form of CFDs. Lastly, some brokers may offer both options for their clients.
With new and innovative ways to trade stocks, as represented by contracts-for-difference (CFDs), making money from stock trading has become easier than ever before. The leverage that is built into CFDs means that traders no longer need to be millionaires to start with in order to make any meaningful profits in the stock market. With leveraged CFDs, even just a small trading account is enough for a trader with the right skills to make large profits from stocks. However, leverage requires strong discipline on the part of the trader in order to avoid big losses. As always, the key is to “cut your losses and let your profits run”.
