What is a CFD?

Contracts for Differences ("CFDs") products were developed to allow customers to enjoy all the benefits of holding a Stock, Index, ETF, Forex, Option or Commodity position without having to physically own the underlying instrument. A customer enters into a CFD at a quoted price, the difference between that price and the price of the CFD when the position is closed is settled in cash, hence the term "Contract for Difference" or CFD.
