What is CFD trading?
CFD Trading is a financial product that enables you to go long and short on a huge range of financial instruments. CFDs are popular with investors who want the opportunity to try to make a better return for their money.
However, CFDs contain significant risks to your capital and aren’t suitable for everyone. We strongly suggest doing your research and trading on a demo account before you try it with your own money.
