Exposure is an amount you stand to lose if your investment or trade fails.
When holding an actual asset, you are risking that the value of this asset will go down. When you have a position that bets on price changes of an asset (as it is with CFDs), you do not need to hold an asset to have an exposure. In this case, your exposure comes from the price moving in a direction opposite to what you’ve planned for.
