“Hello Timon Rossolimos, I would like to know when trading CFD stocks, can we generate capital on the Bull side and the Bear side of the market?”
~ Lindo


Absolutely, that is the main beauty about trading CFDs…

Buy low – Sell high – PROFIT

You’ll either buy the CFD based on the share you’re trading at a LOWER price, with the speculation that you’ll sell it at a HIGHER price for a profit.

This is also known as buying or “going long” a market.

Sell high – Buy low – PROFIT

The other method is where you’ll sell a CFD based on the share you’re trading at a HIGHER price, with the idea that the price will drop, where you’ll re-buy it at a LOWER price for a profit.

This method is also known as selling or “going short” a market.

Technical answer further explained

When you sell “go short” a market, you’ll basically sell securities that you don’t own and hope to buy them back at a lower price where you’ll bank a profit.

There is a three step process when you go short.

Step #1: Borrow them

First you’ll choose the market to short and the amount of shares you’d like to borrow from someone who owns them.

Step #2: Sell them

Next you’ll sell the borrowed shares at a higher price, as you expect the price to drop.

Step #3: Buy them back for a profit

Hopefully the share price will drop where you’ll then be able to rebuy them back at a lower price for a profit.

There are two scenarios that can occur:

Scenario 1: Good

If the market drops, you will buy the shares back at lower price than what you sold them at and make a gross profit after you include costs, interest, dividends,

Scenario 2: Bad

If the market rises and you buy the shares back at a higher price that what you sold them, you will make a gross loss after you include costs, interest and dividends.
