What is a Contract for Difference (CFD)?

A CFD or Contract for Difference is a specialised financial derivative product which allows one to trade on the price movement of an underlying asset. That means that the trader isn’t actually trading the asset itself but rather only buying or selling depending on the movement of the asset on the market. Profitability is determined by the type of position entered and the entry and exit prices of the position on the underlying asset.

Why Trade CFDs?

It goes without saying that with great reward comes great risk. So, CFD trading is not without its risks. Most of these potential negatives can be reduced with proper research and adherence to a structured trading plan.
