When you trade shares CFDs, you do not buy and own the shares but agree to a contract with the broker to settle the difference in the value of shares between the entry and exit prices of your position for those shares.
Unlike buying stocks, where you can only benefit in a bullish market, with CFDs you can go both long and short and take the advantage of even a bearish market.
Moreover, due to leverage you can trade larger volumes with a very small investment. CFDs can also be used effectively to hedge against existing holdings.
It is important to understand that though CFD share trading has its advantages, you must always be prudent while trading.
