What is CFD Trading?

A Contract for Difference, also known as a CFD, is a simple way to trade many global financial instruments. A CFD is a derivative product, which means that it tracks the price movement of an underlying market.

Why Trade CFD?

CFDs are a flexible form of trading that allow you to participate in both rising and falling markets. 

By trading via a CFD, traders can get exposure to the price movements of an instrument without having to buy the underlying product, with all the complications and expense that this can involve.

When trading CFDs with ADSS, traders can gain access to multiple asset classes, including indices, metals, commodities, treasuries and equities.

What are the Main Advantages of Trading CFD?

  • Hold “long” or “short” positions – meaning you can capitalise on either a rising or falling market.
  • Flexibility – you’re no longer restricted to market trade sizes.
  • Leverage – you can trade “on the margin” to maximise potential profits, while reducing your initial outlay. It is important to remember leverage can also increase a loss on your position.
