CFD Trading in Australia

 

The CFDs market is healthy in Australia, with many excellent brokers offering high-tech platforms for retail and corporate investors.

A CFD (Contract for Difference) is an agreement between the investor / trader and the broker, to exchange the difference in value of a share, currency, index or other financial instrument between the time the contract is opened and the time it is closed:

Therefore, the investor / trader doesn’t buy the underlying instrument (i.e. the share); as such this type of trade falls in the category of ‘derivatives’.

Instruments you can trade:

 

-          Shares

-          Indices

-          Currencies

-          Commodities

-          Other

When you open a CFD position, you are not required to pay the full price of the share (or other instrument).  You merely pay a margin or deposit – typically this could be about 5%.  This allows you to trade much larger positions from your initial investment.

CFD trading is therefore high in risk; before you open a trading account it is wise to seek professional financial advice and do as much research as you can.
