What are CFDs?

Contracts for Difference (CFDs)” means a contract that you enter into with the Company, for the Difference between the value of an

Instrument as specified on the Trading Platform at the time of opening a Transaction, and the value of such Instrument at the time of

closing the Transaction. A Contract for Difference (or CFD) is a type of derivative that gives exposure to the change in value of an underlying asset (such as an index or equity). It allows traders to leverage their capital (by trading notional amounts far higher than the money in their account) and provides all the benefits of trading securities, without actually owning the product.   If you still wish us to proceed on your behalf, we may do so,

but we shall not be able to determine whether trading in CFDs is appropriate / suitable for you.

Contracts for Difference (CFDs) on spot Forex, spot precious metals, futures, shares or any other commodities available for trading are

highly leveraged Financial Instruments and involve a high level of risk. It is possible that the Client loses all his/her invested Capital.

Therefore these products may not be suitable for all types of investors and the Client should ensure that he/ she has understood the risk

involved and if necessary the Client should seek independent expert advice.

In practical terms, if you buy a CFD at $10 then sell it at $11, you will receive the $1 difference. Conversely, if you went short on the trade and sold at $10 before buying back at $11, you would pay the $1 difference.
