    CFD Trading Explained

    A Contract for Difference (or CFD) is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract.

    Unlike other more conventional forms of trading, i.e. physical shares trading , where you profit by buying when you expect prices to rise and selling when you expect prices to fall, CFDs enable you to potentially profit irrespective of whether market prices are moving up or down , meaning that you can potentially profit, even during falling markets.

    CFDs are also commonly used as a hedging tool to offset any losses incurred in your physical portfolio of shares.

    As CFDs are a leveraged product , you can take a position by depositing just a fraction of the full value of your position. This is also known as ‘margin’.

    At City Index, we offer low commissions, tight spreads and margins from 1% on over 10,000 financial markets, including indices, shares, currencies, commodities and more.

    Our range of trading platforms and Apps for iPhone™, Android, BlackBerry and Java and Windows Phones, enable you to instantly react to market prices at any time of the day and even when you’re on the move.

    CFDs can be tax efficient, depending on your circumstances. You can use any losses you incur to offset against your Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liabilities. For more information, we recommend that you seek independent investment advice.
