When I was younger and did not have much capital, I did use margin accounts for long positions. If one uses CFDs for long positions, it is likely that the daily financing charges will be much higher. Hence, makes more sense to use the broker margin accounts than CFDs for long positions.
Nowadays though, I don't use margin accounts or CFDs. Borrowing money to bet on the market is very risky as one is exposed not only to the ups and downs of the market but also to daily financing charges which can mount up very quickly. If you use your own money to invest in the market, you can hold on to the stock as long as you wish without incurring daily financing charges. Then, it is only a matter of choosing the right stock rather than choosing the right stock and timing it correctly.
I always have the impression the use of CFDs in local context is for going short. For going long, I rather "take possession" (still true if scripless?) via stock broking firm. I think it aligns to what Dr. Leong prescribes in his book.
