CFDs, or Contracts for Difference, allow you to invest in the performance of a vast range of securities and asset classes such as shares, indices like the the UK 100 and commodities such as gold – but without having to actually purchase or own the underlying asset.
CFD trading allows you to take a position on the future value of an asset whether you think it will go up or down. CFDs are a leveraged product meaning that you only have to put down a small deposit to gain much larger market exposure.
Leverage brings both significant benefits and risk - your money can go further but you can also lose more than your deposits.
