After bitcoin and the rest finished their record-setting month strong with the highest monthly close ever, cryptocurrencies are off to a solid start for “Moonvember” – as November is known in the crypto world.

The whole market advanced 2.6% and now accounts for $2.66trn (£1.9trn), data from CoinMarketCap shows. Three of the biggest cryptocurrencies added handsome gains on Tuesday in early London early trading. Polkadot resumed its record-breaking rally and reached a new all-time high of $53.25 in London mid-morning trading.

Shiba Inu and Dogecoin, on the other hand, appeared to have calmed down from their franctic rallies. Shiba Inu is set to be listed on cryptocurrency exchange Binance, but there is no sign of the coin’s listing on the US trading platform Robinhood. A petition calling on Robinhood to add Shiba Inu to its platform has now gathered more than 466,000 singatures.

Quote of the day 

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen commenting on stablecoin recommendations from the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets:

“Stablecoins that are well-designed and subject to appropriate oversight have the potential to support beneficial payments options. But the absence of appropriate oversight presents risks to users and the broader system. Current oversight is inconsistent and fragmented, with some stablecoins effectively falling outside the regulatory perimeter. Treasury and the agencies involved in this report look forward to working with Members of Congress from both parties on this issue. While Congress considers action, regulators will continue to operate within their mandates to address the risks of these assets.”

      The difference between stocks and CFDs

      The main difference between CFD trading and stock trading is that you don’t own the underlying stock when you trade on an individual stock CFD.

      With CFDs, you never actually buy or sell the underlying asset that you’ve chosen to trade. You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional stock trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares for money, and you own this equity.

      CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade to open a position. But with traditional stock trading, you buy the shares for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks.

      CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades, (unless you use 1-1 leverage) which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a stockbroker commission or fees when buying and selling stocks.
