Buy-and-Hold Strategy

The whole idea is self-explanatory by its name, you have to buy some Index CFDs that you believe in and hold them for an extended period of time regardless of what is the current situation on the market. Your ally here is the time, the more you hold your assets, the higher the chance of huge profits.

‘Buy-Low, Sell-High’ Strategy

This strategy might look similar to the buy-and-hold tactic but it has a distinctive feature. The whole idea is to buy Index CFDs when they are depreciated and selling them when their price is at its pinnacle. In order to use this investment strategy, you must perform the market analysis to determine when the price is low enough (underrated) that it’s worth buying in. The same for exit points, the trader has to be well aware of the situation on the market to understand if it’s worth to sell the asset and exit the deal.

“Spending time in the market” means a long-term investment when the buyer keeps his assets for a decent period of time. It is proven that the buy-and-hold strategy has the biggest rate of return over time, which is displayed on the “FTSE 100 total return” chart.

To “time the market” is to predict when the price is low enough to buy the asset and then predict when it’s high enough to be worth selling it. As an example, lots of investors managed to cash in on the swift drop in the stock prices caused by Covid-19,  buying shares for a small fraction of the real prices and selling them the moment markets began to recover.

Here is a real example, below we can see the price chart of  Dow Jones. The price was dramatically affected by the global Covid-19 outbreak, achieving the all-time best in February 2020 and dropping by 33% in just a month.
