ATFX Launches CFD Trading of 3M Shares

Today’s announcement is part of ATFX’s long-term strategy to make it easier for traders and investors to invest in the global financial markets by providing a wide selection of tradeable assets to its clients

ATFX today announced that they have added 3M Co. shares (NYSE:MMM) to the list of over 100 stock CFDs that investors can trade on its platform.
3M shares have been battered by the coronavirus outbreak, which has affected most companies with significant exposure to Asia.

This situation could present an excellent trading opportunity for traders depending on their future outlook on the coronavirus outbreak.

Trading CFDs on stocks allows investors to open both long and short positions on a stock without taking on the risk of owning the actual stock.

Trading CFDs with ATFX also allows traders to buy and sell these products 24/5 as opposed to trading the actual stock, which trades on a centralised exchange for a few hours each day. However, all investment involves risks; we would like to remind our clients to closely monitor their positions and ensure they have robust risk management strategies in place during this uncertain period.

Today’s announcement is part of ATFX’s long-term strategy to make it easier for traders and investors to invest in the global financial markets by providing a wide selection of tradeable assets to its clients, the firm will continually add to its portfolio of products throughout the rest of 2020 as part of its vision to become the broker of choice for CFD traders globally.
