How do CFDs on shares work?
When you start trading CFDs on shares, you actually trade the price movements of company shares without owning them. This is the way a CFD works: they are derivative instruments that allow you to trade on the price difference of an asset, in this case, a company share, between the opening and closing price of the contract.
You don’t own the asset itself; you sell or buy this financial instrument depending on whether you believe the price for the underlying asset will fall or rise.
Among other specifications, CFDs on shares are financial instruments that make use of trading leverage.
Leverage allows you to start trading CFDs on shares with a smaller investment than you’d actually need when owning shares - increasing how much you can trade but also increasing the potential risk of loss.
