Honestly, I don't think I could if you were to include synthetic CFDs etc. The movie The Big Short was based on the CFD's and the Financial Crises, if you haven't already watched it you should. It's very entertaining. They do a nice explainer on synthetic CFD's which I tried to find for you but I can't see it (in my 5 minute search )

If you need 10k to buy ten thousand shares that cost a euro each, with CFD, s, you only need one thousand euro to buy ten thousand of the same company shares, you are making a leveraged buy, trouble is, if the price goes down, you get a margin call and loose all your original grand

I have done some Forex trading before, I know a little bit about it. Is the leverage the only difference between them? I don't really understand it also. On MetaTrader, you could use leverage also. Does this mean that it automatically gives you the opportunity to trade CFDs? If yes, why should I use brokers like Investous that offer to trade CFDs? Why shouldn't I continue using MetaTrader? Is there something I don't understand?
It's best to invest in mutual funds with small initial investments or in the real estate market. If you think about it, these investment vehicles are much more reliable than stocks. The likelihood that you'll get something out of the deal is higher; in addition, you can now partially invest in real estate, which allows you to use smaller amounts.
