CFDs

The term ‘CFD’ stands for Contract for Difference. This is a contract between you and Capital Index to exchange the difference in value of a financial instrument between the price at which the contract is opened and the price it is closed.

CFD’s, Spread Bets and Spread Trades are leveraged products which allow you to take a position by depositing a small percentage of the notional value of your trade. As you can go long or short on any market these dealing products give you the ability to profit irrespective of whether the markets are rising or falling; this provides trading opportunities during volatile market conditions.

The Advantages of CFDs Trading

  • One of the main advantages of CFD trading, and the reason why it’s becoming so popular, is that you can gain profit if the market goes down and when it goes up. You can sell short and still make a profit.
  • CFD trading also allows you to use leverage, i.e. entering the market for only a fraction of the cost of the actual transaction.
  • Convenience and the lack of a fixed lot size also cause many traders to choose CFD trading. As you don’t own the actual commodity, the risk reduces immensely.
  • As with most financial strategies, CFD trading offers a good opportunity for portfolio diversification, which is always good.

All these dealing products are leveraged so it is possible to lose more than your initial deposit.

CFD trading is fairly similar to the Forex market, if you have experience in that arena. AZ trades,trading platforms also allow’s leveraged buying and selling for CFDs, a CFD strategy that can pay off very well if used correctly.

A CFD contract requires only a small percentage of the notional trade size to establish the position. A complete list of our products, markets and margin requirements can be found on AZtrades web trader.
