What are CFDs​

CFD is an agreement between two parties to settle the difference between the opening and closing prices of the contract. CFDs allow customers to participate in the price movement of an underlying product, such as indices, commodities and shares, without actually owning the asset.


  • Trade in both the bull and the bear markets
    The ability to enter a long and/or short position allow traders to take advantage of both rising and falling markets.
  • Smaller barrier to entry
    CFDs typically have flexible and smaller contract sizes. This means that traders will be able to enter into a CFD contract with a modest amount of capital.
  • No expiration date or risk of delivery
    Unlike futures which commonly have a fixed expiration date, CFDs allow traders to perpetually hold the position(s). CFDs are cash settled, no need to worry about the delivery of the underlying asset.
