Sometimes you will be unable to buy or sell a product on the platform. There could be a number of reasons for this, but typically, it's when the regulator imposes restrictions or there's a lack of liquidity in the market. To list CFD shares on our platform, a number of parameters need to be met. This includes the requirement for each company to have a market capitalisation of at least US$150m. If the parameters are not met, then we may not allow clients to buy/sell at that given time.
You can only deposit funds into your CFD account using the currency the account was originally opened in. If you wish to trade an alternative currency, a second account can be opened in either NZD, HKD or USD.
Please contact our Client Management Team for assistance on 0800 888 874 or via email at email@example.com.
Some stocks have restrictions placed on them, because of which you can only buy the stock but not short it.
Yes you can. Click on the 'Accounts' tab and then 'Positions' on the trading platform to see your separate position clusters, or an amalgamated total with your average entry price.
It is impossible to eliminate all your risk. To minimise your losses you can consider using Stop Losses so that trades are closed before your losses exceed a certain level. (Please remember that Stop Losses are not guaranteed). In addition, please bear in mind when trading with CFDs that the higher the optional financing rate you use for a transaction, the higher the risk.
The premium charged for GSLOs will vary by product and depend on your trade size. The estimated cost will be displayed on order tickets before you agree to apply a guaranteed stop-loss order to a position, and will automatically be deducted from your cash balance once you have confirmed the GSLO. The premium is refunded in full if the GSLO is not triggered. Learn how we calculate our GSLO premiums.

If you remove a guaranteed stop-loss order (GSLO) from an open position, convert it to a regular or trailing stop-loss order, or close out the position yourself, we will credit your account with 100% of the GSLO premium charge.
Please make sure you have taken into account any additional costs, such as overnight holding costs, the premium for guaranteed stop-loss orders, or commissions on share CFD trades. Profit and loss on CFD trading accounts is calculated in the currency where the product is domiciled and then converted into your account currency.
If you're currently long (with a buy position), make sure you're looking at a sell chart (you can change the chart type at the bottom of the chart itself). If you're short (with a sell position), make sure you're looking at a buy chart. If you still feel the stop loss should have been executed, please contact our Client Management team.
Our Risk Management team determines the minimum distance for GSLOs on specific products, depending on market volatility and risk preference of that product on the day.
We offer CFDs on a large number of FX pairs abd this can be traded on the same platform as other CFD products. We don't, however, offer physical FX trading.
Yes, but we don't call them OCO orders. You can set up Stop Loss and Take Profit orders for every trade, as all orders are automatically linked together. If you close your trade or the Stop Loss or Take Profit order is triggered all other linked orders will be cancelled.
If you have any queries relating to your trading account, for example you wish to contest something about your account, whether relating to an open or closed position, please call our Client Management team immediately so we can take action as quickly as possible.
