CFD Definition

A CFD, or a Contract for Difference, is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening and closing price of a CFD contract whose value is tied to an underlying asset.CFDs are financial instruments that provide the opportunity to trade leveraged indices, metals and commodities.

Why chose CFDs over Futures?

1 - CFDs have a smaller notional value than futures: a CFD is normally a fraction of a future contract. With Key to Markets, mini CFDs are available.This means that every time you buy 1 CFD contract you will execute only 1/10 the value of the underlying Index. Please refer to the below table for the details of each CFD.

- CFDs require less margin than futures: CFDs are very flexible as they allow investors to trade with less capital compared to futures thanks to the use of leverage.

Until a few years ago the Index Market was considered a privilege only for financial institutions and professional investors. Nowadays thanks to the use of CFDs even private investors have this opportunity.

 

Cash Index CFD Definition

These CFDs never expire. Every night financing charges will be applied to your account proportionally to your open positions. When dividend payments occur, Key to Markets will process an adjustment within your MT4 balance: a credit in case you hold a long position, a debit in case you hold a short position. Be aware that the spread applied on the Italian Index CFD includes the charge for the FTT tax (also known as "Tobin Tax").
