CFDs provide opportunity to derive profit not only from trading habitual currencies, but also from oil, gold, metals and stock indices. CFD or Contract for Difference allows a trader to derive profit from changing prices of securities, commodities or indices without possessing the underlying assets. A contract’s price precisely follows price of an asset it represents (underlying asset). If, for instance, stock index increased by 5% in a week, we can be sure that corresponding CFDs also increased by 5%. With the help of CFDs it’s equally easy to open both a short and a long position on an index. Trading Contracts for difference is a lot similar to trading stock or index futures, but you don’t have to open accounts on various markets, your account in AMarkets is enough.
