The definition of a CFD (or Contract For Difference) is an agreement to exchange the difference in value of a particular market between the time at which the contract is opened and the time at which it is closed.
CFDs are one of many forms of investing and trading the global financial markets, regulated by the UK’s Financial Services Authority (FSA).  From one trading account you have access to UK, European, US and Asian stocks, indices, currencies, commodities and bonds. Via your account you have the ability to back your judgment as to whether any of our markets will rise or fall in value, similar to buying a share via a traditional stock broker in the hope that it will rise in value, so that you can sell it for a profit at a later date.
With CFD trading, you can choose to decide that the market will rise, or alternatively, you might decide that it will fall.  If you are correct and the market moves in your favour, you will make a profit of your CFD size multiplied by each point that the market moves in your favour.  If you are wrong you will make a loss of your CFD size multiplied by each point that the market moves against you.
With CFDs you do not actually own the underlying asset that you are trading because it is a derived instrument.  The prices that we provide you are derived from the underlying asset and these prices move in conjunction with that underlying asset.
