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.
Markets to trade
Trade Forex on a range of major, minor and exotic pairs using spread betting or CFDs. More 24 Hour markets available than any other platform.
Trade on low spreads across more than 17,000 markets, with some available 24/7.
What are the costs?
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.
