Forex Trading and CFDs Trading - Which Way to Invest?

I don't know who read yesterday's wisdom-filled blog post, but those who did would have had some food for thought on where to place a nice investment using their ISA allowance.

Today, I want to focus on investment trading - this is a whole new ball game and can be a great way to build up on your capital. It is no news that many people are now considering how best to grow their money and provide security for the future.

Two such ways are well-known in the trading and broking world - Forex trading and CFDs trading. Both of these can give you fantastic returns, yet both also carry risks. Whereas forex trading provides access to the largest liquid market in the world, and allows the investor to move money around foreign currencies, CFDs trading requires a lot of attention from the investor. Here, you can't buy and forget - you must keep an eye on your contract to ensure you don't make a loss. CFDs - or Contracts For Difference - allows the investor to trade shares without actually owning them.

Both of these can be exciting and rewarding, but as mentioned it isn't an easy way to invest - it requires thinking caps and some background knowledge, both of which your broker can assist with but are not responsible for.
