As far as I know you can't even be involved in a company that derives income from trading CFD's. I had a search for OTC regs on the SEC site but not surprisingly for a gov site it's a huge mess.

Chart should be the same as the underlying. A CFD is essentially a trade (bet!) with a market maker. So you can trade (bet on!) the ES CL EUR INTL whatever.

They are actually structured a little differently to a bet so there are tax implications.

CFD trading allows you to trade commodities and metals without the expenses of trading in the real commodities market. However, many brokers who offer CFD trading makes it really expensive (wide spreads) and lose the advantage of the CFD. To avoid such brokers, I would suggest only ECN brokers such as etoro, sunbirdfx or alpari UK. These brokers welcome CFD traders and do not have any restrictions…maybe you should try a demo account first before you open a live account for CFD trading
