  • What Is A CFD? – A Basic Overview. Every day, the global financial markets attract millions of investors and traders who seek to capitalise on the fluctuating value of assets in the market. Most methods involve a complicated registration and compliance process, require dedicating large amounts of capital, and offer little room for manoeuvre when the winds shift. CFDs are innovative investment instruments which enable anybody from any kind of background to trade in the markets, regardless of capital size or education level.
  • What Is CFD Trading? CFD stands for “Contract for Difference”. When trading the CFD of a financial asset, you don’t physically purchase the asset, but trade on the price difference. It allows you to open Buy (Long) positions when you predict the future price will be higher and Sell (Short) positions when you expect the future price will be lower. Any financial asset (e.g., commodities, stocks, indices, and Digital Currencies) can be traded in the form of CFDs.
  • How To Profit In CFD Trading? Your profitability is based on whether the asset price moved in the predicted direction, and how far it moved when you choose to close the position. CFDs typically don’t have an expiration date and allow you to hold on to the position as long as you wish.
  • How To Trade CFDs? CFD trading is possible through online brokers who offer this service. As a leading online broker, Captainmarkets offers CFD trading in forex currency pairs; commodities like metals, oil, and agriculture products, stocks and indices from the U.S., Europe, and Asia and Digital Currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Captainmarkets also provides leverage when trading CFDs, which allows you to open large positions while allocating only a small portion of the required capital.
  • Why Trade With CFDs? CFD trading gives you instant access to a wide range of financial markets and assets around the world. Most exchanges will require lengthy registration procedures, complicated trading processes, and frustrating limitations. CFDs enable anybody to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the financial markets without any discrimination.
