A Contract for Difference, or CFD, is a contract between two players to exchange the difference in the value of an asset. To understand CFDs and how to trade them, the best place to start is with traditional investing. If you wanted to invest in a company, you would buy some shares at the current share price. If you wanted to invest in gold or oil, you could buy a bar of gold or a barrel of oil. Then you would wait for the price (hopefully) to increase, and you would sell the asset at a higher price, and make a profit on the difference. Trading CFDs works in a similar way - you open a trade on an asset at a certain price, wait for the price to increase or decrease, and then make a profit (or a loss) on the difference. One of the biggest differences between trading CFDs and traditional investing is that you do not own the asset. Instead, a CFD reflects the price of the underlying asset, and rather than buying that asset, you can speculate on how the price of that asset might change.
