If you think that is forthcoming increase in the price of the underlying instrument, you go “long” and buy. This allows you to make a profit on the future gain. If you think the price will fall, you go ‘short’, and when the price falls, you will still gain from the precise prediction.

CFD trading offers a different approach to trading, because you can sell unsecured securities - "short". The gains/ losses will depend on how reasonably and accurately you predict the movements, the of your lot (‘position’) and how considerable the market movement actually is.
