Contracts for differences can be traded on a broad range of financial instruments, depending on

the access that your CFD broker has to various underlying market price feeds and the range of

markets available to trade is constantly expanding

The main CFD market types include:

What Markets do CFDs Cover?


Share CFDs

These contracts are the most commonly traded CFDs in the marketplace. In these types of contracts, the CFD price

comes from the price of the underlying stock that is the subject of the CFD.


Index CFDs

These types of CFDs are attached to the performance of a specific index. Traders prefer contracts-based on index

performance because of the high leverage possible, liquidity, and volatility these types of investments offer. Those

who trade indices believe that a specific market will rise as a whole. CFDs include the high trading volume, low

margin, high leverage, low trading costs, and access to international markets that would otherwise be difficult or



Commodity CFDs

Commodities are physical assets that are in demand. Investors divide commodities into two categories: hard

commodities and soft. Simply said, hard commodities are mined and soft are grown. These assets are typically

uniform in quality from one item to the next. CFDs with commodities as the underlying asset give traders the

opportunity to trade the futures market with the benefits of CFDs. While trading commodities on an exchange are

complicated due to varying lot sizes, different exchanges carrying different commodities, and expiry dates, the

advantage of CFDs is they reduce the complexity of trading.


Treasury CFDs

When a trader wants to speculate on the value of treasury notes, he or she would choose a treasury CFD. Treasury

notes that are commonly traded include Treasury Notes of varying years, Bonds, Euro-Bund, and Australian Treasury



Sector CFDs

CFDs allow you to profit wherever you find a growth area, regardless of where in the world it may be. As it is as easy

to go short as long, you can also profit from a declining economic sector. With sector CFDs you take an overall view

of the economy, choosing for example healthcare as a solid growth industry. They save you having to analyze the

individual companies, and you only need to see the big economic picture to select profitable areas to trade.



The advantage of leverage, due

to which you enhance your

potential return is high.
