What are CFDs?
Contracts for difference (CFDs) are derivative products which enable you to trade on the price movement of underlying financial assets (such as forex, indices, commodities, shares and treasuries).
A CFD is an agreement to exchange the difference in the value of an asset from the time the contract is opened until the time at which it's closed. With a CFD you never actually own the asset or instrument you have chosen to trade, but you can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss should the market move against you.
What’s the difference between trading CFDs and share trading?
The main difference between CFD trading and share trading is that you don't own the underlying share when you trade on a share CFD. With CFDs, you never actually buy or sell the underlying asset that you’ve chosen to trade, but you can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional share trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the shares for money, and you own this equity.
Why trade CFDs?
When trading CFDs, it’s important to understand the risks
associated with financial trading in general, as well as the risks that are specific
to trading CFDs. The main risks associated with trading CFDs relate to trading with
leverage, account close-out, market volatility and market gapping.
