If you believe that the value of Euro Bund futures (FGBL.f) will increase, buy (long) 1 CFD Euro Bund at the current market price, which we assume is 160 euros. Suppose that the price of the Euro Bund and the value of the CFD rise to EUR 165. If you close your long position of the Euro Bund that you previously purchased at the new current market price of EUR 165, this will result in a difference of EUR 5 and this corresponds to your profit. And vice versa.
