Getting Started with CFDs

The most convenient way to trade the markets

For example:

Gold is quoted at $1160.00 (SELL) to $1160.50 (BUY). You predict that the price of gold will drop. You open a SELL position by selling 25 ounces (amount) at the offered price ($1160.00) and make a profit of $125.

How is that possible?

The price of gold plummeted and is now $1155.00. You close the position (i.e. you BUY back the gold) and your profit is the sum of pips dropped:

$1160.00 – $1155.00 = 5.00
+5.00 x 25 (amount) = $125 profit

    It is possible to profit from CFD trading in both rising and falling markets. You can either open a “SELL” position and profit as the asset price drops or open a “BUY” position and profit as the asset price rises. orders give you a high level of flexibility and control over every trade that you make.

  • Risk management

    Exercising smart money management is always possible thanks to the stop loss/take profit parameters. By automatically closing any open position in case the price either drops or rises beyond a predetermined point, you can continuously maintain your risk levels conservatively.

  • Leverage

    Leverage enables you to gain a large exposure to any financial market with only a small amount of your capital. By doing so, you are able to increase your overall profits only because they are based on the total investment amount of the position.

Generally speaking, everyone can trade CFDs. People who trade CFDs are looking to profit from all 5 major financial markets without having the need to rely on an actual financial institution, such as a bank or an investment company or buy actual shares and bonds.
