Short for contracts for differences, CFDs allow you to speculate on instruments and global markets that may otherwise be unavailable or difficult for the retail investor to trade.
Trade More Financial Instruments – More Than Just Forex
In addition to Forex, you also trade spot metals, Indexes, Global Equities and other CFDs all within our MetaTrader4 platform
Once an institutional product, CFD trading is now heavily traded by the retail market and is a flexible, cost-efficient alternative to traditional shares trading. Trading a CFD allows investors to benefit from the capital gains of a particular stock without having to actually physically own or pay for it.
Similar to trading Forex, CFDs allow investors to hold both "long" and "short" positions granting the retail trader with the opportunity to profit in either a rising or falling stock market. Additionally, investors have the convenience of limiting losses or claiming gains by using stop losses and limit orders.
Because CFDs are traded on margin rather than paying the full value of a transaction, you only needs to pay a percentage when placing a trade.
By offering CFDs, we allow you to indulge in instruments and markets that may otherwise be unavailable or difficult for you to trade.
