What are the benefits of CFD trading?

CFD stands for ‘contract for difference’. It is a derivative which makes speculating with a small deposit easy. CFDs are directly negotiated financial instruments. As unregulated derivatives they allow traders to take advantage of prices moving up or down on underlying financial assets. Investors can use CFDs to take a position on underlying assets without actually owning any asset, which is why they are called derivatives. CFDs are traded in real time and at identical rates: profit and losses are credited to or debited from the client’s account and follow every market move.
