How to invest in the best wind power stocks
How to invest or trade wind energy stocks
There are two main ways for you to take a position in the wind industry: by investing in stocks and taking ownership directly, or by trading financial derivatives such as spread bets and CFDs.
To become a wind shareholder with voting rights, you must use our equity trading platform. By investing in physical stocks, you can profit from the higher price sale, as well as the dividends that a company could pay out to its investors. But if you sell your shares for less than the original purchase price, you will incur a loss.
While the potential for profits is technically unlimited as stock prices can continue to rise, your possible losses are capped at your initial down payment – the total amount of your investment (excluding additional fees).
Alternatively, if you prefer to speculate on the price of wind turbine stocks without having to own the underlying stocks, you can do so by betting on spreads and trading CFDs. You would use leverage, which allows you to get full exposure while committing only an initial deposit, called a margin. But keep in mind that leverage amplifies both possible profits and potential losses to the full value of your trade, and you may lose more than your initial deposit. It is therefore important to manage your risk well.

You would make a profit or a loss depending on how correct your prediction of the future price movement of an asset is. If you are short you will need the price of an asset to fall for this trade to be profitable and if you are long you will need the price to rise.
