What are Share CFDs?

Share CFDs, also called stock CFDs, are contracts for difference on individual shares. They allow traders to speculate or invest in both positive and negative price movements without actually having to buy or sell the underlying share.

A contract for difference is a derivative that allows a trader to participate in price movements without owning the underlying asset. With CFDs, traders can use leverage to increase their exposure, giving the trader flexibility to profit or lose from rising and falling prices.

Share CFDs give traders the opportunity to profit or lose from the volatility of individual stocks as prices rise and fall with changing market sentiment and news events.

Trading Share CFDs vs Index CFDs

An index reflects the average movements of all the stocks within an index, which can result in lower volatility.

Share CFDs reflect the price movements of individual shares which can be more volatile. While it’s rare for one news item to move an index more than a few percent, it is fairly common for a share price to move 5% or greater in a day.

Share CFD trading concentrates on a single company, while index CFD trading concentrates on overall market sentiment.

What is the difference between
share CFDs and share trading?

Share CFDs and share trading both allow you to benefit from the rise and fall of a particular stock price, but share CFDs offer advantages that traditional share trading does not.

A key benefit is that share CFDs allow you to trade with leverage, meaning you only need to put up a small percentage of the full value of the trade in order to open the position. You also gain the freedom to go long or short, meaning you have the potential to profit whether the price of the underlying stock rises or falls. And because Share CFDs mirror all the rights of the underlying share, you also receive cash dividends.
