​CFD trading using margin allows you to open a position by only depositing a percentage of the full value of the position. Profits and losses are relative to the full value of your position. ​CFD trading using margin is not necessarily for everyone and you should ensure you understand the risks involved and if necessary seek independent professional advice before placing any trades.
