Product Overview

CFD stands for Contracts For Difference – a contractual agreement between two parties to settle the difference between the closing and opening price at the close of contract. Simply put it as an over-the-counter trading instrument that allows you to participate in the price movement of an underlying share or index, without the need or rights to ownership.

It is a simple and flexible trading tool that provides you the ability to trade with lesser capital than required in traditional investing, while giving them the ability to long and short the market with ease.
