stock vs CFD

CFD is a derivative product and is an agreement or a contract for difference between the two parties involved to exchange the differences in the opening and closing price i.e. the client and the broker or dealer or agent in the primary market. In other words, it is a deal between two parties to exchange only when there is any difference in the opening and closing price. Derivates are the product that let the traders to trade in the live markets when there is price fluctuation and movement.

In past few years, it has become really famous among the common and regular traders and the demand for this derivative product has increased in the markets, this carries several advantages that cannot be ignored or neglected. 

How does it work?

It simply works on the principle of the difference in price of a stock in opening and closing price through direct access in the market, when the dealer place a trade and then parallel the brokers trade in the market.  . Where the traditional broker would add 50% margin and CFD brokers would only add 5% margin. For instance: A stock has a buying price of “x” and “y no. of shares” are bought at the “x” price then the CFD broker would add “5%” of the margin and  trade is done on “z” price.
