MAKING MONEY IN 2023 – learn about market outlook, trends & expectations
8 February @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Looking to start your trading journey but not sure where to start? This talk might just be for you!
The past decade has seen a huge increase in popularity of different online trading platforms providing easy access to people looking to trade the markets. One of these forms of retail trading is Contracts for Difference (or CFD) trading, which allows you to speculate on the price movement of stocks, currencies, indices or commodities without having to take ownership of the assets. Instead of buying stocks in a company, hoping its price will rise so you can sell for a profit, CFD traders take advantage of rising and falling market prices. This can be beneficial in today’s highly volatile markets – think of the rise and fall of companies such as Meta and Tesla off the back of a global pandemic, the war in Ukraine and fears of recessions)-provided traders manage risk effectively. Continuing uncertainty creates opportunities for traders to capitalise on.
In this talk, City Index will provide a market outlook for 2023, including expectations and trends, and also introduce CFD trading, explaining how it works and using real examples on their online trading platform. There’ll be a Q&A session too!
