What are CFDs?

A CFD is a cash-settled leveraged product that tracks the price movement of a financial market, such as indices, forex, commodities, shares and treasuries. A key feature of trading leveraged products is that as you only have to put down a small deposit for a much larger market exposure, and as such it has the potential to magnify profits as well as losses, which can exceed deposits.

When you trade CFDs, you don’t buy or sell the underlying asset or product. Instead, you speculate on whether the price of that product will rise or fall. We offer CFDs on thousands of global instruments and you can buy or sell a number of units depending on whether you think prices will go up or down. 

For every point the price moves in your favour, you gain multiples of the number of units you have bought or sold. For every point the price moves against you, you make a loss.
