Differences between Investing vs Trading

Snapchat is a popular messaging and photo sharing app that was founded in 2011 by Reggie Brown, Evan Spiegel, and Bobby Murphy. The app allows users to share photos and videos with friends, which disappear after a set amount of time. Snapchat has become extremely popular among young people, and as of 2019, it has over 190 million daily active users.

Snap Inc., the company behind Snapchat, went public in March of 2017. Since then, the company has faced various challenges, including slow user growth, competition from other social media apps, and controversies surrounding its redesign. Despite these challenges, Snapchat remains one of the most popular messaging apps in the world.

Since its inception, Snapchat has been one of the hottest social media platforms on the market. The company went public in March of 2017 and, since then, its stock price has been on a roller coaster ride. In the past year alone, the snap share price has seen some major ups and downs.

Looking at the snap share price trend over the past year, it is clear that the company's stock is volatile. However, despite the volatility, snap shares have generally trended upwards since going public. The stock hit an all-time high of $29.44 in February 2018, but then fell sharply after a poorly received redesign and allegations that the company had misled investors about its user growth. Since then, the stock has recovered somewhat but remains well below its highs from earlier this year. However, it's still early days for the company, and it remains to be seen whether it can sustain its growth and remain popular with users in the long term. Only time will tell.

When it comes to trading the Snapchat's stock (ticker: SNAP.US), there are two main approaches that investors can take: trading in a contract for difference (CFD), or investing directly in the shares. Both have their own risks and rewards, so it's important to understand the key differences before deciding which approach is right for you.

CFDs are derivative instruments that allow traders to speculate on the price movements of underlying assets without actually owning them. This means that CFDs can be used to trade both rising and falling markets, and they offer leverage, which can magnify profits (or losses). However, leverage also increases risk, so it's important to use it carefully.

Investing directly in shares, on the other hand, exposes investors to the full upside (or downside) of the underlying asset. This means that investors need to be confident about the direction of the market before taking a position. But for those who are correct, the rewards can be significant.

So, which approach is right for you? It depends on your trading style and objectives. If you're comfortable with taking on more risk in pursuit of higher potential rewards, trading CFDs may be a good option. However, if you're more conservative and prefer to limit your downside risk, investing directly in shares may be a better choice. Whichever approach you choose, make sure you understand the risks involved before making any trading decisions.
