Have you always wanted to trade shares or simply tired of trading Spot Forex currencies and wish to take advantage of the available CFDs on the Dukascopy Bank's online trading platform but don't know much about them? If your answer is a Yes, then please continue reading.
In layman's terms, just as in Spot Forex trading a currency pair equates to an actual purchase of one of the two underlying currency assets and selling the second currency of the pair against it, Contract for Difference (CFD) is the opposite in comparison to Spot trading and works on merely speculating on the price change in the exchange rate of an underlying asset; without entitling us to the ownership of such an underlying physical asset. Therefore, since CFDs are not an actual acquisition or selloff of real assets; liquidity is never an issue and will not impact a trade as it does when trading physical assets on an exchange market.
There are CFDs for many types of markets but the most common ones are as following:
  • Global stock CFDs, such as blue chip shares of a public company.
  • Stock index CFDs, such as NASDAQ, FTSE, DAX and other stock market indices.
  • Forex CFDs

From the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to the ticks of automatic trading on the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations - commonly known as NASDAQ and even the buzzing of the blue chip stocks of Deutscher Aktienindex (DAX) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, one thing is evident that the major stock markets around the globe has seen a major rally and setting new record highs in the first quarter of 2017.
While argumentatively, all along many persisting bearish factors were and are still present to halt and possibly even more strongly favour the short positions taken in stocks and a major decline of stock market indexes around the globe. Just to list a few of such reasons are:-

When the year 2016 began, one of the first major news items to hit the airwaves was the sudden decline that was noticed in the Chinese stock markets. Stock market circuit breakers were put in place to prevent the Chinese stock market from declining more than 7% in a single trading day; within the first two weeks of the year, these circuit breakers were triggered several times. This stock market decline rapidly spread to other global markets, creating bearish stock markets worldwide.
In the summer of 2015, the Chinese stock market experienced a major stock market crash.
Within three weeks, the Chinese stock markets went down by approximately 30%.
All the major Chinese stock market indexes nose-dived, and yet it took several weeks of selling in the Chinese stock markets before the selloff spread to other global markets. So what was different about this particular 2016 selloff?
Why the panic? The answer is relatively simple, investors were dumping their Chinese shares because there was evidence of the Chinese economy was contracting, and that it’s Government was weakening its currency through its severe interest rate cuts. That is an investor’s answer, the other answer is the fact t…
