Trading CFDs on ETFs
Sell or Buy?
What happens if you believe the price of the ETF will decrease? In that case, you can open a ‘Sell’ deal. This is also known as ‘short trading’ or ‘going short’.
In a Sell deal, you essentially sell the instrument at a higher rate, hoping to buy it again when the price decreases. Many people find Sell deals confusing, but they are in fact just mirror image of standard Buy deals.
