What are CFDs ?
A CFD, or Contract for Difference, is an agreement between a buyer and a seller stating that the seller will pay the buyer the difference between the value of an asset at the time the agreement was made and its value at present time. CFDs have become extremely popular among traders due to the numerous advantages they offer.
