Contract for difference (CFD) trading is a popular type of derivative trading. CFDs provide a way to take a position on the rising and falling prices of financial markets from all over the world, including indices, currency pairs, commodities, shares and treasuries.
CFD trading accounts allow 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.
