What are CFDs?
A CFD, or Contract for Difference, is an agreement between a buyer and a seller stating that the seller will pay the buyer the difference between the value of an asset at the time the agreement was made and its value at present time. CFDs have become extremely popular among traders due to the numerous advantages they offer.

Advantages of CFDs on Commodity Futures
The same conditions apply to taking long and short positions. If you wish to go short, the same selling rules and margin requirements apply to the ones for going long.
It is far less costly to trade CFDs on Commodity Futures than to take part in the underlying exchange because margin requirements for CFDs are significantly lower.
Like forex, leverage in trading CFDs is higher. Margin requirements can be as low as 10% which means that you can trade bigger volumes, no matter what kind of trader you are.
The trading hours for CFDs for Commodity Futures reflect the exact trading hours of the original exchange (GLOBEX) that futures contracts are traded on.
