Contracts for difference (CFDs) are derivative products which enable you to trade on the price movement of underlying financial assets (such as indices, shares and commodities).
A CFD is an agreement to exchange the difference in the value of an asset from the time the contract is opened until the time at which it's closed. With a CFD you never actually own the asset or instrument you have chosen to trade, but you can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss should the market move against you.
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’. While trading on margin allows you to magnify your returns, 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.
Our award-winning CFD trading platform provides access to over 10,000 global instruments, at competitive spreads and margin rates. Trade CFDs on major forex pairs from 0.7 points and popular indices from 0.3 points.

1When trading share CFDs a commission is charged upon execution of any order. Commissions start from 0.10%, or 1 cent per share for US- and Canadian-listed shares.
Our extensive range of risk management tools include regular and trailing stop-loss orders. These tools enable you to manage risk, helping to secure potential profits and minimise losses.
Your approach to risk management and how long you hold a position for can affect your potential CFD trading costs. There's a charge to hold a position overnight and for share CFD trading, there is also a market data fee and commission charge.
We offer competitive monthly cash rebates for clients who trade CFDs in high volumes. If you meet our requirements for one asset class, for example on indices, you automatically qualify for monthly rebates on FX and commodities as well. Conditions apply.
