The process of entering and closing out trades within the same day or trading session.

Dealing spread

The difference between the buying and selling price of a contract.

Deposit

The funds required to initiate and maintain an open spread betting or CFD trading position. Since spread bets and CFDs are traded on margin, the deposit is only a fraction of the full value of the trade and is not the total amount that can be lost on a trade.

Depreciation

A fall in the value of an asset.

Diversification

An investment strategy that aims to manage risk through variety within an investor's trading portfolio. Different components are chosen from a range of different industry sectors, so it’s unlikely that all of the investments will fluctuate in the same direction. The idea is that the portfolio as a whole will display more consistent, stable results than any of the individual components in the portfolio.

Dividend

That part of a company’s profit after tax that is distributed to its shareholders. Dividends are usually distributed in cash, but can also take the form of stocks. Also known as payouts.
