CFD stands for Contract for Difference — a kind of financial bet, which allows traders to earn or lose money based on the underlying asset’s price/rate difference. Although most retail brokers offer Forex trading services via CFDs, the main usage of CFD is to offer easy access to commodities (gold, silver, oil, etc.), equities, indices, bonds, and cryptocurrencies. Absent CFDs, traders would have to resort to futures and options to get exposure to those assets. It is important to note that CFD trading is banned in the United States. The posts below offer general information on trading in Contracts for Difference and also mentions of the specific CFD brokerages.
