A CFD is a versatile product that allows you to trade an underlying share, index or commodity contract without having to own the asset itself. It is a contract between two entities; the “buyer” and the “seller”.
You can buy or sell CFDs, allowing you to book profits by speculating on the price movements of the underlying market, whether it is rising or falling.
CFD trading doesn’t involve exchange fees and is perceived as being more efficient than buying and selling the underlying products upon which the contracts are based. CFDs are traded on margin, using leverage to maximize your trading capital.

Representing a virtual basket of shares, an index provides an indication of the performance of an overall market rather than just an individual share. Indices react to macroeconomic indicators, aiding the anticipation of future market movement. Trading in index CFDs may enable traders to capitalise on wider market movements and take advantage of potential lucrative returns on their investments.
