CFD Trading on Shares

Stay one step ahead of the stocks of your favourite companies.


What is a CFD?

CFD stands for ‘Contract for Difference’. It is a contract between two parties, typically known as the ‘buyer’ and the ‘seller’, over the price movement of a specific product.

Simply put, the seller pays the buyer the difference between the present value of a share, commodity, index or currency and its value at the precise time that the contract was made. So, when you trade CFDs on shares, you are aiming to profit from the price movement of the shares – instead of investing in the stock itself.

Getting Started with CFDs

Before diving into things, newcomers should familiarise themselves with the proper terminology of CFDs, and ensure they have a sufficient grasp of the concept.

You can gain knowledge through research, or by opening a demo account, through which you can make risk-free trades using virtual currency.


How a CFD works

With Vextrader, you can trade CFDs on gold, silver, platinum and palladium.

Paying the full value of the shares (1000 x the current market offer price of BP) plus a commission to the stockbroker.Selling shares through a CFD provider is easy. You just open your contract to go short rather than long, at our bid price. For this reason CFDs are often used by clients who want to hedge an existing investment portfolio.
