We set a price for a contract based on the underlying market, which you can buy or sell. With each market you are given a ‘buy’ and ‘sell’ price either side of the underlying market price. You can trade on a market to go up (known as ‘buying’ or ‘going long’), or you can trade on it to go down (known as ‘selling’ or ‘going short’). Learn more about trading CFDs

Furthermore, the FCA noted that charges in the space tend to be “significantly higher” than for other CFD products. Fees can include the spread (the difference between the prices at which a firm offers to buy or sell a CFD position), funding charges and commissions. While such fees many vary significantly between firms, they can impact the likelihood of making a profit or not.

It depends on the market you choose. Generally you only pay a commission charge for share CFDs, or a spread (the difference between the buy and sell prices) for all other markets. There is a small charge to fund positions overnight, a small premium for guaranteed stops, and other fees.

Commodities can be related to food, energy, metals which makes them the basics for the building blocks of the global economy. There are 2 types of commodities, soft and hard. Hard commodities are for example gold, silver and platinum, they tend to have a longer shelf life. Whereas soft commodities such as rice, soybean and corn have a limited shelf life and are agricultural goods. Therefore, the commodity from one country will be available in exact quantity and amounts of another.

Professionals prefer future contracts for indices and interest rate trading over CFDs as they are a mature product and are exchange traded. The main advantages of CFDs, compared to futures, is that contract sizes are smaller making it more accessible for small trader and pricing is more transparent. Futures contracts tend to only converge near to the expiry date compared to the price of the underlying instrument which does not occur on the CFD as it never expires and simply mirrors the underlying instrument.[citation needed]
