What is CFD trading ?

A Contract for Difference, or CFD, is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference in value of a particular market, between the time at which the contract is opened and the time at which it is closed.

CFDs can be traded on UK, US, European and far-east stocks, indices, commodities and bonds.

To make a CFD trade, you must decide whether the market will rise or fall. If you place a trade and predict correctly, you will make a profit of your CFD size multiplied by each point that the market moves. If you are wrong, you will make a loss related to the CFD size, multiplied by each point that the market moves against you.

With CFDs you do not actually own the underlying asset that you are trading as a derivative instrument but prices are derived from the underlying asset value and prices move in conjunction with the underlying asset.

Margin Products carry a high degree of risk to your capital. Losses can quickly exceed your initial investment. Margin Products are not suitable for all investors who should fully understand the risks and seek independent advice if necessary.
