you can trade on falling markets (go short) as well as rising markets (go long)

Leveraged products

Use a small amount of money to control a much larger value position

A CFD, or Contract for Difference, is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract. CFDs can be traded on a wide range of + 4000 global markets.

What Is CFD Trading?

Your Capital is at Risk

CFD Trading 


Straightforward, CFD trading lets you 

speculate on the price movement of a variety of financial markets such as 

indices, shares, currencies, commodities

and bonds, regardless of whether prices 

are rising or falling. 


Because you are speculating on price movement rather than owning the underlying instrument, 

you will not pay UK Stamp Duty on any profits*. 

When you open a CFD position you select the amount of CFDs you would like to trade and your profit will rise in line with each point the market moves in your favor.


If you think the price of your chosen market will go up, you click buy and your profits will rise in line with any increase in that price.

However, if the price falls, then you will make a loss for every point it moves against you.


For example, if you think the price of oil is going to go up then you could place

a buy trade of 5 CFDs at the price of 5325.

If the market rose 30 points to 5355 and you closed out your position,

you would make a $150 profit, 30 times the 5 contracts that you bought.


However, if the market moves against you and the price of oil falls 30 points to 5295 then you would lose $150.


How does CFD trading work?

Trading On Falling Markets

If you believe a market will fall in value, you can sell a market – known as going short – and make a possible profit from falling prices. This is different from traditional Share dealing where you can only buy, or go long. 


The US 500 is trading at 2850. You believe the US 500 will fall as you expect the forthcoming US earning season to disappoint.

You open a sell position of 5 US 500 CFDs at 2850.

The US 500 falls by 65 points to 2785 and you decide to close your trade.



As CFDs allow you to short sell and therefore make a potential profit from falling market prices, they can be used as a tool by investors as ‘insurance’ to balance losses made in their physical portfolios. 

For example, if you hold £10,000 of Barclays shares and you concerned that they are due for an imminent sell-off, you can help protect your share portfolio by short selling £10,000 of Barclays CFDs.  Should Barclays share prices fall by 5% in the underlying market, the loss in value of your share portfolio would be balanced by a gain in your short sell CFD trade. In this way, you can protect yourself without going through the expense and tiresomeness of liquidating your stock holdings.


This means you trade by paying just a small fraction of the total value of the contract. 

Remember that with leveraged trading, there is a potential for your losses to exceed deposits.

In other words, you can put up a small amount of money to control a much larger amount potentially expanding your return on investment. Remember, however, that your losses will be magnified as well, so you should manage your risk accordingly.
