What Are CFDs

Contracts for difference (CFDs) let you buy and sell the price movements of financial markets, such as indices, commodities and oil. By trading CFDs you are opening contracts for the price differences of the assets until you close them. You do not own any assets since you are not physically trading in the underlying market.

How CFD Trading Works

There are two prices in CFD trading: the “buy” and “sell” prices. The “spread” is the difference between the two. By trading at the buy price, you will profit if the asset’s value increases. By trading at the sell price, you will profit if the asset’s value decreases. Because it is leverage-based, which comes with inherent benefits and risks, you can lose more than your initial deposit.


CFD Trading Example

You buy 3 contracts at 1960.50 on the SPX500. The market price later moves to 1980.7, and you decide to take your profit. The profit, therefore, is 1980.7 - 1960.5 = 20.2 points. With 3 contracts each point is worth USD30, so the final profit is 20.2 x 30 = USD606.
