Contracts for difference have a collateral requirement which means that open positions are ‘marked to market’, and should the position move against you this will reduce your cash balance. If there is insufficient collateral on account to support the open position losses, the trader will be subject to a ‘margin call’ which means that you will have to deposit additional funds into the account (or close the position).
