Contracts for difference (CFDs) are derivative trading instruments that allow you to trade on the price movements of a number of financial markets.
There’s a variety of reasons our clients love CFD trading – let’s look at some of these reasons below.
The diversity of the CFD markets allows you to trade a wide range of financial instruments and markets to expand your trading portfolio.
With access to forex (such as EUR/USD), indices (including FTSE100), energies (such as WTI oil), precious metals (like Spot Gold) and much more, CFD trading is a fantastic way to broaden your trading horizons and expand your portfolio.
Unlike traditional share dealing, CFDs allow you to go either short (sell) as well as go long (buy).
Should you believe the market you’re trading is about to fall (or depreciate), you can open a short position, and if the market does indeed depreciate then you can aim to close the position at a lower price to make a profit.
However, if the market rises (appreciates) after you open a short position, closing the position at a higher price will result in a loss.
Don’t forget that because you’re trading with leverage potential losses can exceed your initial deposits.
By capitalising on the ability to go short on CFDs, you can use CFD trading to hedge your physical trading portfolio. ‘Hedging’ is the act of decreasing your risk. In trading, if you believe your assets are at risk due to a market movement, you can offset the potential losses by placing a trade in the opposite direction – this is what’s known as hedging.To put this into practice, if you start to see the value of your share portfolio falling, you can open a CFD short position to hedge the loss. Although the value of your portfolio may fall, this could be offset by the profit gained by your CFD short position.
As with most financial trading, there are costs associated with CFD trading. The costs of CFD trading with us are:
If you have any open positions remaining at the close of market (5pm New York time) you may incur a holding cost – a charge to keep the position open. This holding cost on your positions can be either positive or negative, based on the movement of the market between close and opening times. Please note: depending on your account type commissions may be charged on trades.
A spread is the difference between the current ‘bid’ and ‘ask’ price of a particular instrument. Whenever you open a CFD trade, you will only start to make a profit once the market has passed the ‘bid’ price if you go long, or passed the ‘ask’ price if you go short..
Start CFD trading on either our very own ThinkTrader platform or the ever-popular MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and discover the world of forex trading for yourself.
