When trading with CFDs (Contracts for Difference), traders can speculate on an instrument's price variation over time. In this case, an instrument's price can either fall or rise.
If you believe the price of a given instrument will fall, you can open a short position. If you speculate that the price will rise, you can open a long position.
Whenever you are placing a short or long position, you should make sure you are referring to the related price chart of the position. 📈
We can open a short position by 'Sell' -ing units at the current price of an instrument.
Respectively, we can open a long position by 'Buy' -ing units of a given instrument.
