Contract for Difference (CFD) is yet another tradable instrument similar to Forex. The only difference is that instead of currency pairs, stock indices, stocks, treasury bonds, commodities, precious metals are being offered. Just like Forex, instead of owning the assets, traders only own speculative positions and would make profit or loss based on the difference between the entry price and exit price. In addition, traders can hold both long and short positions for these CFDs, which allows more flexibility than the underlying assets which can only be sold when you hold the long position in the first place and have limited time to buy back the position you sold. Furthermore, leverage can also be used in CFD trading.
