Contracts for difference (CFDs) are a derivative product that allow you to speculate on short-term price movements of financial assets. Instead of physically buying or selling the underlying share or commodity, for example, you buy or sell a number of units for that instrument, depending on whether you think its value will rise or fall.
At the end of the contract, you will either make a profit or loss from the difference in opening and closing prices, depending on which direction your chosen asset moved in. Watch our video for more information on how CFD trading works.

Is CFD trading better than investing?
Trading CFDs and investing both have their separate risks. An advantage of CFD trading is that you can trade on both sides of the market and go long or short, depending on whether you think the market will rise or fall. However, CFDs are most often used for short-term trading, meaning that there is more risk of volatility within the markets and the chance of losing your capital to sudden price movements.
