Contract for difference (CFD)


In finance, a contract for difference (or CFD) is a contract between two parties, typically described as "buyer" and "seller", specifying that the buyer will pay to the seller the difference between the current value of an asset and its value at contract time. (If the difference is negative, then the buyer pays instead to the seller.) In effect CFDs are financial derivatives that allow traders to take advantage of prices moving up (long positions) or prices moving down (short positions) on underlying financial instruments and are often used to speculate on those markets.

The major benefit of trading a CFD is the fact that the client can trade on margin – meaning client can trade a full portfolio of CFDs without having to tie up large amounts of capital.

Below are the specifications of all the CFD contracts available for trading at Investa fps.
