Introduction To CFD Trading
This CFD Trading Guide has been developed to assist daytraders.
CFDs are a method of making profits from financial assets price movements without owning the assets themselves.
You merely trade a contract which you buy at one price and sell at another, making the difference – hence the name, Contracts for Differences.
You don’t need to have the total value of the shares in the first place – you only need to pay
a portion of the deal, known as margin
requirements starts at 10%. That means you could take a £10,000 position, and you just need to provide £100 initially.
Margin requirements vary from asset to asset and can be changed at any time to reflect market conditions.
