CFD – Contracts for Difference – is an arrangement made in a futures contract whereby differences in settlement are made through cash payments, instead of delivering physical goods or securities. CFDs are considered as one of the easiest methods of settlement since losses and gains are paid by cash. CFDs are usually traded as OTC (over-the counter).

This type of trading gives you considerable benefits over conventional share dealing. CFDs offers investors to speculate with all the advantages and risks owning a security without actually owning it in the equity market, treasuries, commodities, etc. Major advantages also include Gearing, Immediate dealing, Interest and Dividend Adjustments, etc. To read more about benefits of CFDs click here
