What is CFD?

Contract for Differences (CFD)
CFD is a tradable instrument that mirrors the movements of the asset underlying it. It allows for profits or losses to be realized when they move in relation to the position taken. Trading CFDs has several advantages:
Higher Leverage: CFDs provide much higher leverage than traditional trading. Lower margin requirements mean less capital outlay for the traders and greater potential returns. However, increased leverage can also magnify losses.
Global Market: Products are available to trade in all the world’s major markets. This means traders can easily trade in any market while that market is open.
No Shorting rules or Borrowing stocks: Certain markets have rules that prohibit shorting or require the trader to borrow the instrument before shorting or have different margin requirements. With CFD trading traders can be shorted and there is no borrowing or shorting costs.
Professional Execution: CFD trading include order types as traditional brokers such stops loss, take profit.
No Fees: To buy a trader will pay the asking price and sell at bid price. No fees or commissions are charged for trading a CFD.
No Day Trading Requirements. Certain markets require a minimum capital amount to day trade, or place limits on the amount of day trading. The CFD market is not bound by these restrictions.
Variety of Trading Assets: There are stock, index, currency and commodity CFDs.
A few modifications were made in our CFD and FX in order to meet European regulatory requirements:
The contract is now based on asset currency, meaning when a position is opened it is based on the asset pair and not on the account currency.
Bid/Ask are built-in the prices.
Forex balance meaning the trader cannot take position on his entire balance if it includes bonuses as well (because of the leverage) We added a pop-up that will be displayed every time a trader tries to take a position and his balance is not sufficient.
Advantages to CFD trading include lower margin requirements, easy access to global markets, no shorting or day trading rules and no fees. However, high leverage magnifies losses when they occur. CFDs provide an excellent native for traders and these have increased the popularity of these instruments over the last years.
