What is CFD Trading?
CFDs let you profit from markets rising or falling, trading on margin, without owning the asset. The video below introduces how CFDs work.
CFDs are derivative products. As such, you don’t own the asset you are trading. Rather, you simply trade on the change in the market prices of forex pairs, indices, shares, commodities or other assets.

Leveraged access to markets
CFDs are leveraged - or margined– products, meaning that you only need to deposit a small percentage of a larger position in the market. As your profit or loss can significantly outweigh your initial investment, you must fully understand the risks involved before trading CFDs.
We provide a suite of products, tools and policies to help you to manage and limit your risk. These let you know your risk up front and automatically close your positions if markets go against you.
CFDs are leveraged products. CFD trading may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your initial investment, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
