What is CFD trading

A Contracts for Difference (CFD) is a popular form of derivative trading. CFD trading enables you to trade on the rising or falling prices of fast-moving global financial markets (or instruments) such as shares, indices, commodities, currencies and treasuries.

CFD trading explained

Some of the benefits of CFD trading are that you can trade on margin, and you can go short (sell) if you think prices will go down or go long (buy) if you think prices will rise. CFDs are tax efficient, meaning there is no stamp duty to pay. You can also use CFD trades to hedge an existing physical portfolio.

    You can trade commodity CFDs by speculating on the changes in the prices of commodities. If a trader believes that the price of a commodity is expected to go up, s/he opts to go long on the instrument. If the trader considers that the price might go down, s/he can choose to short the instrument. If the prices change in line with expectations, the trader profits from the trade, otherwise, the trade results in a loss. Hence, trading carries risk, and stop loss is a must while placing an order.

Also, you should know how to use "stop loss" tools well or other risk management strategies. We offer up to 1:500 leverage on selected products including precious metals, gold, oil & natural gas commodity CFDs.
  • What is a 'pip'?
    A pip stands for a ‘point in percentage’, which is a very small measure of change in a currency pair in the forex market. It can be measured in terms of the quote or the underlying currency. A pip is a standardized unit for the smallest amount by which a currency quote can change. It is usually $0.0001 for USD-related currency pairs. A fractional pip or point is equivalent to 1/10 of a pip. There are 10 points to every 1 pip.
  • What are spreads?
    Spreads are measured in pips and show the difference between buy and sell prices. In trading, ‘ask price’ (or ‘offer price’) means the price you’d like to buy at, and ‘bid price is what you’d like to sell at. In practice, if EURUSD has a bid price of 1.55310 and an asking price of 1.55313, the spread would be 0.3 pips.
