A Contract for Difference (CFD) is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract. CFDs allow you to profit from falling as well as rising markets and trade free of Stamp Duty Tax*. The concept of leverage allows you to trade a CFD position by depositing just a fraction of the value of the position – this in turn will magnify your profits or losses (and can result in losses in excess of your initial deposit should the market move against you). Equity CFDs are available on all major global markets including UK, US, EUROPE and ASIA. CFDs are also commonly used as a hedging tool to offset any losses incurred in your physical portfolio of shares.
