A contract for difference (CFD) is derivative trading. Specifically, CFD trading enables you to speculate on the rising or falling prices of fast-moving global financial markets, such as forex, indices, commodities, shares and treasuries. You trade a contract based on prices derived from these underlying markets. A financial spread bet (spread betting) allows you to speculate on the financial markets; you are not trading the markets, you’re betting on a range of potential outcomes based on the underlying data. All spread bets have a fixed expiry date.
