Contracts for difference (CFDs) are a popular type of derivative trading that enables you to take a position on the rising and falling prices of financial markets (such as forex, indices, commodities, shares and treasuries). CFDs is a leveraged product, which allows you to ‘trade on margin’ using leverage, so you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of your position to enter the trade. While trading on margin allows you to magnify your returns, losses will also be magnified as they are based on the full value of the position.
Contracts for difference are a speculative product that come with many risks. Trading with leverage can lead to profits but it can also come with equal losses if the market moves against you; the stock and forex markets are particularly well-known for their unpredictability.
As well as spreads and margins, there are some other trading costs to consider. These depend on how long you hold positions open for (overnight fees), which products you trade (commissions on share trading) and your approach to risk-management.
