Normally, when you make investments, you buy assets on the open market – for example, you might buy stocks, commodities or currency pairs. However, it is also possible to make investments without owning an asset at all – in fact, this is becoming an increasingly popular way of investing.
This type of investment is known as a contract for difference (CFD), and is essentially a contract between yourself and a CFD broker.
In my last lesson you learned about trading a long straddle, using the example of WTI crude oil. In this lesson, you will learn to use the power of an options strategy to execute more than one option at the same time for news announcements and major economic events. A popular strategy to take advantage of an expected increase in volatility is that very same long straddle.

Brownfield land developer Inland Homes (INL) has changed its strategy in the past year or so and it is building more homes rather than selling the land on to other developers. That is enabling it to generate additional profit from the land, yet the share price suggests the underlying value of the land is being largely undervalued by investors.
