What is CFD trading?
CFD is one of the world’s most popular ways to trade on a wide range of instruments such as Shares, Commodities, Currencies, Indices or Treasuries.
A CFD (Contract for Difference) is a contract between a trader and a CFD broker; it reflects the difference between where a trader enters a trade and exits it. Traders Buy or Sell contracts in order to profit from falling or rising markets.
CFD – Contracts for Difference, is a financial instrument which allows trading index, share or commodity contracts without having to own the underlying asset itself. To buy shares of Boeing or sell shares of Yahoo a trader doesn’t need to be in London or New York. By trading with CFD broker a trader can conduct stock operations while staying at home and without actually owning the underlying asset itself.
In terms of financial language, a contract for difference (CFD) is an agreement between a seller and a buyer to pay the difference between the opening and closing price of the contract. The price of the contract is the price of the asset (a share, index or future).
For example, if a trader buys a CFD for 800 shares of Airbus at 50.00 US dollars for 1 share and sell it later at 55.00 US dollars, the contract buyer (CFD broker) undertakes to pay the price difference of 5.0 * 800 = 4000 US dollars to the trader. On the other hand, if the share price at the moment of closing the contract is lower than the purchase price a trader will be obligated to pay the price difference.
