CFD stands for ‘Contract For Difference.’ It is a financial derivative typically described as a contract between two parties the Investor and the CFD provider. You can trade on margin and it doesn’t require the buying or selling of any of the underlying assets. It also allows the investors to make speculations and take advantage of rising or falling markets.
CFDs on Indices are often called just ‘Indices’ by Brokerage Houses. They behave as a normal CFD (You can trade on margin and can buy or sell the index) but the underlying assets are Global Indices such as S&P500, Nasdaq, Euro Stoxx 50. When a CFD trade is placed on a particular index, the emphasis is on the overall performance of the market rather than investing in a single stock meaning that the risk is spread out.
