What is a Share CFD?

A share CFD is a CFD where the underlying asset is the stock price of a public company.

A CFD, or Contract for Difference, offers you all the benefits of trading shares without having to physically own them. Simply put, it is a contract that mirrors the performance of an underlying instrument. It is traded on margin, and just like physical shares your profit or loss is determined by the difference between the price you buy and the price you sell.
