CFD Trading FAQs:
What do CFDs mean?
CFDs, or Contracts for Difference, are financial derivatives that allow traders to speculate on the price movements of various underlying assets without actually owning the assets themselves.
Are CFDs leveraged?
Yes. CFDs are leveraged, meaning traders can trade a larger position with a relatively small amount of capital. While leverage can magnify gains, it can also amplify losses, depending on the price movements of the underlying asset. You can read more about leverage in our FAQ section under the “What does “Leverage” mean?” question.
How can I trade CFDs?
You can trade CFDs with a regulated provider like Plus500. To trade CFDs with Plus500, you need to open a trading account, click on the “Trade” tab, and open a buy or sell position depending on your goals.

Do CFDs have an expiration date?
Most CFDs do not have an expiration date. However, some markets, like Futures and options, may have an expiration date.
Are CFDs risky or safe?
Like other leveraged derivatives, CFDs are certainly risky due to the unexpected nature of the markets as well as their leverage. Accordingly, to mitigate these risks, traders can educate themselves on how CFDs work and use risk management tools to limit potential losses. In addition, traders may want to closely monitor market conditions, events, and news.
Are CFDs legal?
CFDs (Contracts for Difference) are legal financial instruments regulated by various frameworks for CFDs overseen by various regulatory bodies. For example, CFDs are regulated by the MiFID II Directive, which provides a regulatory framework for financial markets in the EU. Plus500 offers CFDs worldwide through its licenced subsidiaries in Australia (ASIC), the UK (FCA), Cyprus (CySEC), Singapore (MAS), Israel (ISA), Seychelles (FSA), Estonia (EFSA), and Dubai (DFSA).
How are Futures and CFDs different?
One of the main differences between Futures contracts and CFDs is that Futures have a predetermined date and price and traders get ownership of the underlying asset, whereas CFDs do not grant ownership of the underlying instrument. In addition, when trading CFDs you can buy or sell them at any time or price.
Can CFDs be traded overnight?
Yes, CFDs can be traded overnight. However, trading overnight is usually accompanied by a fee. You can read about the different types of CFD fees in our Fees & Charges section.
How do I calculate the margin in CFD trading?
The CFD initial margin is calculated as a percentage of the total value of the CFD position. You can learn more about calculating margin in our FAQ titled “How do I calculate my Margin requirements?”
How are CFDs and traditional investing different?
Traditional investing, such as buying shares or investing in a fund, gives the trader direct ownership of the underlying asset and is more suitable for long-term trading, whereas CFDs do not grant ownership of the underlying asset. Instead, when trading CFDs, traders are essentially speculating on the rising or falling prices of the underlying asset (depending on their position) without actually owning it. This makes CFDs more appropriate for short-term trading for purposes such as hedging and speculation.
What is a CFD issuer?
A CFD issuer is the entity that provides the platform needed to trade CFDs. Plus500, for example, is considered a CFD issuer.
What are CFDs’ trading hours?
CFD trading hours differ based on the underlying instrument. For example, Index, Commodities, and Forex CFDs are traded 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, while Share CFDs are traded based on the relevant stock exchange’s trading hours. Keep in mind that the trading hours are displayed under the instrument’s properties.
Who are CFDs suitable for?
CFDs may be suitable for certain knowledgeable traders with a high-risk tolerance who can afford to lose their money, such as day traders, traders who seek leveraged trading, and those seeking access to a wide variety of markets for less capital and without having to own the underlying assets.
What do long and short mean in CFD trading?
If you decide to "go long," it means that you are opening a position for buying a particular asset with the expectation that its value will increase in the future. On the other hand, if you choose to "go short," you are opening a position for selling an asset with the anticipation that its value will decrease over time.
What can affect CFD prices?
The price of a CFD is derived from the price of the underlying asset which can be affected by Monetary policies set by Central Banks, company and industry financial statements, news and current events, supply and demand, and other external factors.
