What is the Difference
Between CFD trading
and Share Trading?


The principal difference between CFD trading and share trading is that you do not own the underlying asset i.e the physical share. As stated, CFD stands for "contract for difference" and with a CFD you never actually take ownership of the asset or instrument you are trading but you can still take benefit if the stock market moves in your favour or make a loss if the market moves in the other direction.

CFDs are also a leveraged product and the margin requirements mean that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the trade in order to open a CFD position whereas with share trading shares are usually purchased for the full amount owed.

Leverage also comes with suspential risk, so it is important to understand the risks that comes with leverage before trading.
