    CFD is a contract between a buyer and a seller in derivatives trading. It stipulates that the buyer will pay the seller the difference between the current value of an asset and its value at contract time.
    CFD is cash-settled and permits traders and investors a chance to profit from price movement without owning the underlying assets.
    The binary option is a type of option with a fixed payout in which an investor predicts the outcome from two possible results. If the prediction is correct, the investor receives the agreed payout. If not, the investor loses the initial stake.
