Speculate on the rising or falling prices of fast-moving global financial markets with CFDs or contracts for difference

What is a CFD?

Contracts for difference (CFDs) are a form of derivative trading that enable you to attempt to net a potential profit by speculating on the rising or falling prices of fast-moving global financial markets (or products) such as shares, indices, commodities, currencies and treasuries.

How do CFDs work?

There is no actual ownership of the underlying asset of reference. Since the product is not exchange traded, it is said to be traded over-the-counter (OTC). CFDs are traded on margin and can be sold short, making it possible to profit in falling markets. We offer CFDs on hunderds of global markets and you can buy or sell a number of units for a particular product or instrument depending on whether you think prices will go up or down. Our wide range of products includes, treasuries, currency pairs, commodities and stock indices, such as the DAX, which aggregates the price movements of all the stocks listed on the German respective stock index. For every point the price of the instrument moves in your favour, you gain multiples of the number of units you have bought or sold. For every point the price moves against you, you will make a loss. Please remember that losses can exceed your deposits

What is margin and leverage?

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’ (or margin requirement). While trading on margin allows you to magnify your returns, your 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
