What is a CFD (Contract for Difference)?

A CFD is a derivative that allows you to trade on the price on thousands of financial instruments, without owning the underlying asset. You simply place a transaction based on the movement of the price of any given asset and profit if the market moves in your favor or make a loss if it moves against you.

CFDs are leveraged which means you only need a small deposit to control a much larger investment, this feature will magnify your profits and your losses.

What are the costs of CFD Trading?


Spread betting is a margined product. This means that you are only required to pay a deposit to control a much larger amount.

This will magnify profits and losses. 


This is the cost to trade. The spread is the difference between the buy and sell price. The spread is effectively a commission charged for executing the trade. The spreads we can offer are among the lowest in the industry.  You may also be charged overnight funding on some positions.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I could not more highly recommend Guardian Stockbrokers, everyone has been brilliant. The attentiveness, training and technical detail provided, has enabled a fast track learning and an ability to manage the portfolio in a way that would far exceed my own capabilities. It is almost as though they own the positions themselves; via their due-diligence and proactive manner of continuous monitoring. Above and Beyond.
