					CFD trading is the acronym for contract for difference which entails a
way of investing into financial markets. In comparison, CFD trading is
similar to spread betting, therefore if you are one of the people who
have experience with spread betting, then CFD's will seem somewhat
familiar. CDF involves the agreement made between the seller and the
buyer. It is the kind of trade that is best for short term investors,
although there is no expiration date on contracts for
difference.Investing with CFD's is quite simple. When you decide to
invest in it you are simply betting on the value of your resource asset.
That is, whether you think the commodity's value will go up or down. The
contract implies that if you think that the price is going up then you
will be the buyer (going long) and on the other hand if you think the
price will go down then you will be the seller (going short). Again, if
during the contract, the deal favors you then, the other party will have
to pay you the amount made during the agreement - the difference - and
vice versa.With CFD trading you have unlimited markets to work with. For
instance, stocks, equities, including indices such as FTSE and the Dow
Jones are available. In addition, are other commodities such as oils,
natural gas, interest rates and bonds. Your CFD broker can provide
further information and help you decide which investments are right for
you. There are a good number of CDF providers in the market so far, some
of the top most include: IG markets, EXT capital, Spreadco and City
Index. Depending on the market you decide to open the contract with then
the commissions varies. Interestingly, with CFD you area allowed leverage
your trades, meaning with a small amount of money you can control a large
investment.You may be asking yourself how much does it cost to trade with
CDF? To open a contract with CDF agent you are charged on commission,
which in most cases is around 2.5%. On top of this, you will be charged a

amount of money but generate huge profits. CFD's allow you to be long or
short on any given commodity, meaning you can benefit from both rising
