An Introduction to CFD trading by IG Markets http://www.contracts-for-difference.c... Contracts for Difference or CFDs for short are a flexible alternative to other forms of trading. CFDs allow you to trade on whether the price of a financial market will go up or down. CFDs can be used to trade a wide range of markets including shares, indices, forex, commodities and more.
What is a CFD? A CFD is an agreement to exchange the difference in value between the price of a contract when it is opened and the price when it is closed. This means that a CFD allows you to profit from the movement of a market when it moves up or down. And as opposed to futures the exposure size is adjustable. So if you want to trade the Dow Jones or forex pairs such as euro-dollar, there are also mini contracts available permitting the level of risk to be controlled at all times. These trading products are ideal for trading short to medium-term views in the markets.
