Familiarity with CFD trading

Generally in these transactions, you agree to exchange the difference in the price of an asset from the point the contract starts, until the expiry of the contract. One of the main advantages of CFD trading is that you can set the expiration time of the contract based on your guess about the prices. In this way, your profit or loss depends on the accuracy of your prediction.

Comparison of CFD trading with futures trading

In futures transactions, the contract is closed for a certain period, and at the maturity of the contract, it is necessary to pay the seller at the price of the day. In this type of transactions, if the stock or value purchased has increased in price, the buyer will loss.

In order to solve this problem that existed in futures trading, an amendment was made and CDF trading was introduced. In these transactions, the contract maturity was removed, and traders can manage short-term or long-term transactions whenever they like.

In this way, there is no more stress for the expiration time of the contract, and the more skilled the

trader is in guessing the prices, the more he or she can benefit from CFD transactions.

An example of CFD trading

Assume that you buy a company’s stock at a current buy price of $41 and a sell price of $40. But your prediction is that the price of this stock will reach $39 in the next few days. Therefore, you sell a part of your share, for example, about 100 shares for $40.

In the coming days, if your guess is correct, and the stock price drops to $39, you will buy 100 shares worth $39. In this case, despite the downward trend in the market price, you have made a profit.
