Share CFDs

Thanks to a real-time feed straight from two of the biggest stock exchanges in the world – NASDAQ and NYSE – you gain access to the stock market and the shares of some of your favourite companies. Since you’re speculating on price movements, you’re not subject to ownership of the underlying asset.

What is a CFD?

CFD stands for ‘Contract for Difference’, which is an arrangement made between two parties, the buyer and the seller, over the price movement of a specific financial product. Essentially, the seller has to pay the buyer the difference between the present value of an asset and its value at the time the contract was made.

Why trade Share CFDs?

By trading Share CFDs, you gain access to the stock market of some of your favourite companies. As an investor, you’re trading on the price movements on shares of a corporation that is trading in the equity market.

In this sense, the trader is not subject to the ownership of the underlying asset, which is one of the most important aspects of trading CFDs. The trader is effectively stress-free of any negative corporate events, including bankruptcy.

Low Costs

Trading Share CFDs is a much cheaper option than buying and trading the underlying stock, you do not have the associated costs of accessing trading capabilities, because you are not buying the asset. CFDs offer the trader the same – sometimes even greater – profit opportunities as if they had bought the stock.

This is a double-edged sword however, as the trader can suffer the same amount of losses depending on the price movement of the underlying stock.

Leverage and Margin

With CFDs in general, identical margin requirements apply, regardless of whether you’re going short or long. What’s more, leverage is higher with CFDs than it is with traditional trading, and the margin requirement for Share CFDs often starts from just 3%. Traders will still need to apply proper risk management into their strategies however, because using leverage and margin can potentially amplify losses as well as profits.
