A contract for difference (CFD) is a contract between a buyer and a seller that stipulates that the buyer must pay the seller the difference between the current value of an asset and its value at contract time.
Simply put: CFDs enable trading on price differences. The nature of value for CFD contracts is not tied to the asset's underlying value but rather only to the price change between the trade opening and closing point in time. What this means is that traders can increase their equity by trading CFDs even if the price movement is net negative. Trading CFDs is characterized by enormous popularity in the past decade.
CFDs allow traders and investors an opportunity to profit from price movement without owning the underlying assets, which actually makes it more affordable for ordinary people to start trading when compared to conventional stock exchange brokers and their high barriers to entry.
