IFC Markets has dramatically expanded the range of trading instruments that are now available for CFD trading. Traders now will have an opportunity to trade the CFDs on stocks listed on Hong Kong Stock Exchange, Asia's second largest stock exchange in terms of market capitalization and participate in new opportunities for trade provided by the launch of the Shanghai - Hong Kong Stock Connect on November 17.
The Shanghai - Hong Kong Stock Connect has allowed the investors worldwide to trade the mainland shares and opened the Hong-Kong Stock Exchange for mainland investors. As increasing number of foreign investors bought mainland shares the Shanghai Composite Index jumped 17 percent in three weeks since the link began on November 17. The rush to mainland stocks has also resulted in the increase of Hang Seng China Enterprises Index of mainland companies listed on Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Thus traders can profit from trading the uptrend on both exchanges.
The inflow of new investors has led also to a dramatic increase in mainland stock prices so that companies with equity listings in both cities are trading at a premium on the Shanghai stock exchange, providing an arbitrage opportunity for smart investors while it lasts.
At the same time, traders can profit from Hong Kong currency trading. The dynamic economic developments in China and Hong Kong attract increasing investments leading to Hong Kong dollar appreciation. And traders who monitor the economic tides can benefit from anticipating the currency fluctuations.
To conclude, IFC Markets has undergone an active process of introducing new Stock CFDs to its clients. Recall that recently the company had announced the release of new German Stock CFDs. The company will continue its work and will soon present new instruments to its customers.
