The major difference between CFD and shares is that CFD’s are bought using leverage. This means that you can gain a larger exposure to the movement of the share for a relatively small outlay. Keep in mind however, that leverage will magnify a profit, or a loss, so it does carry significant risk.
Note: To simplify the scenario we have not included any fees, interest or dividend adjustments. These will vary between providers.
