Contract For Difference

A Contract designed to make a profit or avoid a loss by reference to movements in the price of an underlying item. The underlying item is not bought or sold itself. Similar to spread betting. Increasingly popular as an alternative to actual share trading as it allows margin deposit trading and legally avoids stamp duties or similar taxes. Typically, a Quoted CFD price will track the underlying share price quite closely.
