The article focuses on the various important trading issues involved in the use of contracts for difference (CFDs) in Australia. According to the author, it is important to determine whether the CFD provider uses a Direct Market Access (DMA) model or a Market Maker (MM) trading model. He adds that under the MM approach, the CFD provider creates its own share prices while a provider offering DMA gives access to the actual stock exchange trade prices. The advantages of the MM approach and the possible problem with the MM model are also discussed.
