A CFD is a tradable contract between two parties, usually a buyer and a seller, to exchange the difference between the opening and closing prices of the contract, at the close of the contract. Based on this, a share CFD is a financial instrument which is linked to the underlying share price. The holder of a share CFD has no shareholder rights, because he is just speculating if the price will go up or down.
