CFDs: A Quick Introduction

CFDs (Contracts for Differences) allows online traders to speculate on the rising or falling prices of fast-moving global financial markets (or instruments) such as shares, indices, commodities, currencies and bonds. CFD involves the same trading practices as the actual ownership of the underlying assets, but when trading CFDs traders do not own those assets. Traders buy or sell a number of units of a particular instrument depending on whether they assume that prices will go up or down, and the difference between open price and closing price is the profit or loss of traders.

Trading CFD is associated with the risk of loss, this is a concept that is important to remember when you start trading on Forex.
