CFDs – basic information

CFD stands for contract for difference. It comprises a buyer/seller agreement. The chief condition set out in this agreement is that the seller will provide the buyer with the difference between the asset value at agreement time, and the value at present. CFDs are becoming more and more attractive of late.

In GCC Exchange we have a range of CFDs you can select.

CFDs are used often as a way to hedge portfolios during short-term volatility times. By hedging one’s position through a CFD, one can mitigate short-term loss if a long-term portfolio enters an area of short-term risk.

If a portfolio decreases in value, revenue from CFD contracts can compensate for incurring losses. Like this traders can keep their portfolio from big value reductions.
