What is a Contract for Difference (CFD)

A Contract for Difference or a CFD is a contract between two parties that are willing to speculate on the price movement of a financial asset. A CFD contract exchanges the difference between the entry price and exit price of a particular financial asset. A CFD may be used for speculating stocks, stock indices, currencies, commodities or even other financial assets (volatility, inflation etc). A CFD consists of two prices, the price at the time that is opened, and the price at the time it is closed. If the underlying financial asset rises in price, the buyer of the contract is paid from the issuer of the contract. The CFDs do not have a specific expiry date like for example options contracts -CFDs are renewed at the close of each trading day, and depending on the trader decision, they are rolled forward or abandoned.
