What are CFDs?
Contract for Difference (CFD) is a leveraged financial instrument, which allows you to speculate on price movements of different markets, such as indices, commodities, currencies, shares and treasuries or its derivatives or value estimations.
Unlike traditional trading on those markets, you donít need large amount of capital to start trading Ė CFDs are traded on margin, similar to Forex.
CFDs can be used as to speculate on up and down movements, as to hedge or diversify your equities of commodities portfolio without the significant collateral requirements and lot sizes associated with classic Futures trading.
Although the price of the CFD usually reflects the price of the underlying asset, this isnít necessary the case. Please be advised, that youíre not buying or getting any ownership of the underlying asset itself.
