How To Buy Zoom Shares Guide

Buying Zoom Stocks and CFDs

When investing in Zoom you have several options as to what type of investment you wish to conduct. You can buy traditional Zoom shares with one of our listed brokers or you can trade what is known as CFDs or contracts for difference.

We explain in detail the difference between buying Zoom shares with stock brokers and trading Zoom with CFDs below.

Zoom CFD Trading vs Traditional Share Dealing

CFD trading is quite much like stock trading except when you exchange a CFD you do not actually own any Zoom stock.

If you buy Zoom shares with a stock broker you actually own a share of Zoom. When you trade a contract for difference (CFD) you have an agreement with your CFD broker and are speculating that the Zoom price will change up or down.

Lets explain why you would buy Zoom as a CFD instead of as a share.

If you went and brought 100 Zoom shares at $100 a share with a stock broker you own $1000 of Zoom.

The main difference when trading Zoom as a CFD and buying Zoom as a share is contracts for difference offer increased leverage.

Contracts for difference are traded on margin which means to have $1000 invested in Zoom you would not need to invest the full amount as you would with a stock broker. You could invest a fraction of the amount ( known as the CFD margin ) with a CFD to hold a similar position in Zoom. Trading an Zoom CFD allows investors to hold larger positions than their invested amount. Be aware that although investing in an Zoom CFD like this amplifies any potential profit. It always exaggerates your potential losses which may exceed your amount invested.

If you invested in an Zoom share with a stock broker you would only lose the amount you invested as you pay the total cost of your position to your broker upfront. There is no leverage.

An Zoom CFD long would be hoping to profit from a rise in the Zoom share price. An Zoom CFD short would be aiming to profit from a fall in the Zoom stock price. Trading CFDs allows traders to profit from both directions of the Zoom price on the financial exchange. Giving traders greater chance to move with the financial markets.

With traditional Zoom shares you can only profit from a rise in the Zoom stock price.

Zoom CFD and Stock Market Times

When trading in traditional Zoom shares you are limited to when the stock exchange is open. You can only buy and sell with your broker when the market is open.

With CFD trading you can deal 24/7 around the clock.

Buying Zoom Shares with a Broker

Buying shares with a stock broker limits your risk to your initial investment as stock brokers require you to pay for the total amount of your investment. Stock brokers offer no leverage or loans when buying Zoom stock. This limits your risk to your initial amount invested in Zoom. You can only lose the amount invested with traditional Zoom shares. Another benefit of buying Zoom shares with a broker is that you may be eligible to receive Zoom company dividends if applicable.

If you Invest in Zoom via a CFD you have no shareholder privileges as you don't actually own any underlying assets in Zoom. If you buy Zoom stock with a broker you may receive shareholder perks and benefits. There are certain requirements to be eligible for some of these Zoom benefits as in owning a certain amount of stock for a set period.

If you own shares in Zoom you may be eligible to voting rights at Zoom shareholder general meetings.

Zoom Shares and CFDs and Tax

You should confirm with your local tax office but CFDs are free from stamp duty. When trading CFDs losses can be offset against profits when submitting your tax return.

Investment in Zoom Stocks and shares are only exempt from tax if the Zoom shares were brought through an ISA ( Individual Savings Accounts ) or SIPP ( Self Invested Personal Pensions ).

Should I trade Zoom Stocks and Shares or Zoom CFDs?

There are pros and cons to trading in both Zoom Stocks and CFDs. Which is better depends on each investor and a few factors.

Investing in Zoom stocks and shares is better suited for long term investments. Historically Zoom shares provide better returns over the long term, usually a 10 year period.

Zoom CFD trading is more suited to intra day and mid term traders. Wth intra day trading on an Zoom share investors aim to profit on the fluctuating highs and lows of the Zoom price throughout the day. Day trading as you can imagine focuses on profiting from the daily Zoom stock price change.

Both types of trading have different benefits and risks. Make sure you have a good understanding of what you are doing before you invest.

With CFD trading as you can short or long an Zoom stock you can hedge a trade against another trade.

A hedge is an investment that protects the money you have invested from risk. Traders hedge to minimize or offset a loss in value of an Zoom share price for example to a known amount.
