What is a CFD?

A CFD is a Contract for difference. This is an investment vehicle that is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract. You can use CFDs to trade and speculate on the price movements of thousands of financial markets regardless of whether prices are rising or falling, therefore hedging your positions. This is a geared investment and while you have the ability to make significant returns in a short time frame you have the ability to lose your initial capital invested.
