What is CFD trading?

It stands for ‘Contract for Difference’. The ‘contract’ here is between the investor (you) and the broker (us). The ‘difference’ part refers to the changing price of a trading instrument. Without owning any asset, you can speculate on the price change in any market. If the price of the instrument (such as an FX pair) changes according to your prediction, you profit. Otherwise you lose.
