Trade Stocks CFDs
Share CFDs (Contracts for Difference) have become increasingly popular over recent years.
When you enter into a CFD trade you don’t buy the stock itself but instead agree a contract with the broker to settle the difference in value between the entry and exit price of the Stock. That means when you trade Stocks CFDs with ECNOptions you get a flexibility that stock market rules often make impossible.
With CFDs you can sell shares as easily as buying them, allowing you to take advantage of price moves even in a falling market. More importantly, because you aren’t actually purchasing the underlying asset you can get leverage of up to 20:1, allowing you to take a large position with a small investment. Leverage of course can significantly increase your losses as well as your gains.

What are Treasuries?
Government treasuries – bonds issued by national governments – are considered among the safest long-term investments.
When an investor purchases a government bond they are, in effect, lending money to the government for a set number of years. In return they receive interest payments on the amount of the loan. The face value of the bond does not change.
Bonds do not have to be held until they mature. There is a thriving secondary market for government bonds.
There are a number of factors to consider when calculating the likely future value of a government bond, including political stability, the value of its currency and the risk of inflation.
Trading Bond CFDs
ECNOptions allows you to speculate on the shifting value of common government bond futures, such as the US 10-Year T-Note, through CFD trading.
A CFD (contract-for-difference) is a type of derivative that allows you to speculate on the price of an underlying asset – in this case a government bond future contract – without actually owning the asset itself.
The advantage of CFD trading is that you can trade long (buy) or short (sell) easily, trade with leverage in order to take a bigger position, all from a common online trading platform such as MetaTrader 5.
