Hello all,

My background is futures trading (prop firms for 2+ years and energy futures for 2+ years) executing through CQG and TT X_Trader pro direct to the exchange. I understand trading, markets and risk but I do not understand CFDs, are they real markets? Can you trade them and make money in the long term or are they rigged in some way for the house? I have searched all over the internet but have struggled to find credible information; it all looks very much like a scam. Can someone point me in the right direction please?
