CFDs vs Options

Contracts For Difference vs Spread Betting
By far the greatest advantage of financial spread betting over CFDs is the tax treatment as spread trading involves no CGT on the profits you make from trading the financial markets. Both options are stamp duty exempt.

As most would guess, CFD trading started in the City of London in the early 1990's as a type of margined equity swaps. At first, they were only available to institutional traders and investors such as hedge funds.
Leverage and no UK stamp duty made it happen.
Late 1990's and Contracts For Difference were finally introduced to the retail traders, first in the UK and in early 2000's to all retail traders around the world.
Once again the leverage played a vital role in growing popularity.

Reason 1: Gambling. Gambling is probably the most common reason why so many CFD traders lose money. People get drawn into trading in a hope of making a quick buck and then end up losing money due to gambling and hoping for a lucky break.

Reason 2: Over-leveraging. Leverage is tricky as it is one of the pillars of CFD trading but at the same time most of the risks are associated with it. Try to keep the leverage in check and never put much of your capital at risk.

1. Leverage offers a great advantage for retail trader but it comes with its own benefits and risks. Leverage "technically" allows you to borrow money from your broker and thus you don't need to pay 100% value of the underlying instrument.

2. Range of market. With CFDs, you can "virtually" trade anything, you name it, but the most common products are: stocks (shares), forex, commodities, indices, and cryptocurrencies.
