Contract For Difference (CFD) Trading

CFD trading provides an alternative way to go long or short on a huge variety of financial markets on margin. House of Borse provides access to a range of US and European indices and commodity CFDs with tight spreads and low commission.

CFD stands for Contract For Difference. Put simply, CFD trading lets you speculate on the price movement of a whole host of financial markets such as indices, shares, commodities and bonds, regardless of whether prices are rising or falling. You never actually own the asset you trade but instead are speculating on the asset’s price movement.

 

Key Features

  • Flexible – you can trade on rising as well as falling markets
  • No Exchange fees – You do not own the underlying asset and do not acquire any rights or obligations in relation to the underlying asset.
  • Leveraged product - Use a small amount of money to control a much larger value position. This has benefits and risks: your investment capital can go further, but you can also lose a lot more quickly.
  • Hedging tools - You can use CFDs to offset any potential loss in value of your physical investments by going short
