Indian stock indices look to start trading on a positive note on Monday even as several key Asian markets opened weak during morning trades.

SGX Nifty futures index, which represents Indian stocks, are holding ground on the Singapore Stock Exchange, up 0.15%, bucking emerging trends elsewhere in Asia.

Hong Kong and Japan opened with minor losses on Monday morning following Wall Street cues, which closed lower amidst high volatility.

The US equities, however, had some respite from technology counters with Nasdaq moving to another record high on better corporate performance from big technology stocks.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
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 and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
