Stocks of individual companies are still popular among traders, and many people believe this asset class is even better to trade as CFDs than as the actual underlying stock. One reason for this is that CFDs make it incredibly easy to short-sell and to boost one’s profits with high leverage. As such, many crypto & forex brokers offer their clients the chance to trade stocks in the form of CFDs.
The stocks that are offered by crypto & forex brokers are generally from the world’s biggest and best-known companies. This includes big American tech companies like Apple, Facebook, and Alphabet (Google), in addition to some major European and Asian companies.
