CFD stands for Contract For Difference. This type of financial instrument allows you trade an underlying index, share or commodity contract without actually having to own it. The CFD price is the price of the underlying asset. So if the price of the underlying asset goes up, so will the price of the CFD. Similarly, if the price of the underlying asset goes down, so will the price of the CFD. It is important to us to emphasize that you don’t own the asset you trade. SGTMarkets offers CFD trading, giving individual traders access to a large range of markets which were not accessible to them before.
