What A CFD Trader Should Expect In 2021

cfd trader expectations contracts for difference trading trends

With these new strains of Coronavirus, the lockdown is unlikely to stop in 2021. Making money online is even more in demand now. More and more people will enter the world of trading, and first of all, they will try it with derivatives – contracts that do not rely on physical assets or even on the real amount on the asset they’re dealing with. One of the most popular derivative options – CFD trading – was among the easiest to go online. So if you’re thinking about whether it’s worth to start trading CFDs in 2021, here are our thoughts on CFD (contracts for difference). 

Market Growth 

Blame it on the lockdown. As more people will wish to make money from homes, the CFD market will welcome more newcomers. They will invest their money but demand more platforms, more brokers, with mobile apps, educational resources, trading signal providers, and stuff. So along with amateurs, the market will offer more chances for pros. The same effect will be produced by the further introduction of 5G technologies, connecting more people and providing a faster response in technical terms. 

The rule will remain unchanged: most traders will lose their money within the first three months of trading and never go back. This means, though, that the successful ones will have more to share. 

State Policies 

In most countries. CFD trading is legal and probably will remain so. Still, there are some limitations. For example, U.S. citizens are not permitted to do CFDs. But it’s rather an exception. Even Islamic countries that could have considered CFD haram due to interest rates, do not completely ban it. 

Will there be any new regulation introduced to important markets like European Union? Probably. Even when some countries introduce new rules, they are just catching up with the rest of the world. Say, in Australia new rules come into effect from March 2021: they leverage ratio limits, regulate margin close-up application so the trader cannot go broke after it, or prohibit offering monetary and non-monetary inducements. These limitations, though, just echo those that were introduced in the UK in 2019 or in the EU in 2018. So hardly will there be any legal changes. 

The factor that draws the most attraction is Joe Biden’s potential actions. But, as we know, a small Chinese bat can make more noise than the POTUS. 

Knowledge Still Rules 

While some traders take CFDs as a sort of gambling, others apply knowledge and analysis, both of purely mathematical factors and of political or economical trends. The easiest one to predict in 2021 is the growth of the green energy market which means this type of asset will go up too. Another one already named is 5G. As for currency rates, nothing indicates any changes so far, though black swans never warn about their arrival. The key to success is still in combining the rational reasons (signals, analytic tools, news) and intuition.
