Although not as popular as spread trading, it is gaining increasing prominence in the world of financial trading and is becoming more and more popular across the UK and Europe.
Contracts for Difference (often referred to as 'CFDs') allow traders to speculate on a large range of markets, including forex markets, commodities, interest rates and government bonds as well as stocks and shares.
Due to the increasing popularity of the derivative, financial trading website CFDs-Online.com, have launched a brand new set of broker trading tables. The tables, which cover a number of the leading brokers, compare prices, features and what markets are available to speculate on.
Frankie Lawson, Senior Editor at http://www.cfds-
"Consequently, we decided to launch these broker comparison tables; we wanted to assist the growing number of traders who are looking to use CFDs."
That is not to say, however, that the tables are only for investors who are new to trading CFDs; experienced traders will find many useful features such as whether CFD brokers like FinancialSpreads.com, http://www.cfds-
"Due to the fact that CFDs are leveraged," continued Lawson, "we wanted the broker tables to also focus on risk management, which is especially important at the moment due to the current volatility in the markets. That is why we compare areas such as what the minimum stake is, whether the broker offers trading orders such as guaranteed stop losses, and whether the company offers a demo account to allow users to practice trading risk free."

CFDs-Online.com is a London based financial trading website that focuses on Contracts for Difference.
The new broker comparison tables compare whether the company offers 24 hour CFD trading, stop loss orders, guaranteed stop loss orders, demo accounts and whether they are FSA regulated. They also contrast the commissions offered on popular forex rates, shares, stock markets and commodities.
CFD Trading and Spread Trading are both financially geared types of trading which involve high levels of risk and investors can lose more than their original stake or investment. Where necessary, investors should obtain independent advice and only speculate with money they can afford to lose.
