I get many questions about CFDs and indeed CFD trading can be both exciting and rewarding, but the can appear complex at first sight. It democratises access to global financial markets and is one of the best ways to trade. But I have seen many would be traders fall at the first hurdles and struggle to understand where they went wrong. Knowledge is the key to success but good information is hard to find. There are many sales men peddling get rich quick schemes, which leave you with little knowledge and a lot light lighter wallet.
I have known both Ashley and Jeff for a long time having worked with both of them. Ashley is a fantastic educator who has taught many new traders when we worked together at CMC Markets. He always received great feedback and produced many of our best education tools when CMC Markets introduced CFDs to Australia.
Jeff has already produced one great book introducing CFDs, one of my favourites. We ran a number of education events around New Zealand and used to receive great feedback from the clients, I saw many of these traders use the techniques that Jeff talked about to become successful traders.
I was really pleased when I first heard that Jeff and Ashley were getting together to write ‘CFDs made Simple’ and it was no surprise to me to see a great result. This book is a must have for any CFD trader and great for both beginners and the experienced trader. I would highly recommend it to all traders as it covers everything you need to know yet is simple and easy to read. CFD trading can bring great rewards, but like all things in life you need to invest in learning the ropes and this book is a great way to get started.
