Trade Equities CFD with Infinox

If you’ve ever lamented the day you passed over the opportunity to buy shares in Amazon, you can still get in on the action. Trading equities is a great way to speculate on the market value of familiar brands and companies. While investors would normally buy and sell shares, trading CFDs means you get to trade the market movement but without spending out the huge costs for company stocks. For example, single shares in Apple go for between $215 to $250. With Infinox you can trade them for as little as a third of their market value.  When it comes to buying individual stocks or trading equities CFDs, beginner investors should find the market much more accessible using contract for difference.
