Contracts for Difference and CFD Trading in Italy
Contracts for difference (CFDs) are becoming popular in many countries. They started in London in the 1990s, and have expanded around the globe with the notable exception of the USA, where the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) do not permit them. It’s not surprising that they’re catching on so quickly, as they allow the astute trader to make profits much more quickly than trading in simple shares. They have been compared to trading shares but with largely borrowed money, and that is a fair assessment of the practical effect of trading CFDs.
