Traders that wish to invest in the price movements of instruments can buy a Contract for Difference, rather than purchasing physical assets.
CFD, short for Contract for Difference, is a derivative financial instrument that enables investors to gain exposure to financial markets without physical ownership of the underlying asset. It is an agreement between the trader and the provider to exchange the difference in value between the opening and the closing level of a particular contract.
It has no expiry date, meaning that the investor (in this case you) decides when to close down their position, at which point the difference in value would be exchanged (i.e. profits paid or losses deducted).
CFDs are usually leveraged so only a fraction of the total value of investment needs to be deposited in your account in order to trade and the remaining amount is financed by the provider, in this case, by VGG. Vgg Markets permits you to trade with less leverage through a variable margin offering.
