What are CFDs?

A CFD, or Contract for Difference, is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract. CFDs can be traded on a wide range of over 4000 global markets.

CFD trading lets you speculate on the price movement of a whole host of financial markets such as indices, shares, currencies, commodities and bonds, regardless of whether prices are rising or falling.

CFDs are a leveraged product, which means that you only need to deposit a small percentage of the full value of the trade in order to open a position. This is called ‘trading on margin’. While trading on margin allows you to magnify your returns, losses will also be magnified as they are based on the full value of the position, meaning you could lose more than any capital deposited.

Our award-winning CFD trading platform provides access to over 500 global instruments, at competitive spreads and margin rates. Trade CFDs on major forex pairs from 0.7 points and popular indices from 1 point.

Risk management

Our extensive range of risk management tools include regular, trailing and guaranteed stop-loss orders (GSLOs). These tools enable you to manage risk, helping to secure potential profits and minimise losses. Unlike other stop-loss order types, for a premium, GSLOs offer 100% certainty that a trade will close at an exact price.

Potential CFD trading costs

Your approach to risk management and how long you hold a position for can affect your potential CFD trading costs. There's a charge to hold a position overnight and for placing a GSLO. For share CFD trading, there is also a market data fee and commission charge.
