What is CFD trading?

 

Contracts for Difference (CFDs) are instruments which track the quoted price of an underlying asset such as a stock, commodities future, exchange index or fund index. Trading CFDs does not carry out an operation on the underlying asset itself, which means that trades can be made at any time and for any volume. CFDs offer you the opportunity to capitalize on both rising and falling prices in the underlying asset.

 

 

What do we offer?

 

 

Gold & Silver

 

Similar to Forex trading, spot metals trade on a 24-hour time frame. It represents volatile markets such as gold and Silver, that offer many trading opportunities in rising and falling markets. They are tradable commodities where investors take short or long positions of the metals’ prices. Trading gold and other spot metals create great opportunities for hedging in every liquid market.

 

Energies

 

The energies sector offers the trading of energy products, specifically crude oil and natural gas. Energies are innately volatile markets because of the direct impact world events can have on supply.

Indices

 

Equity indices, or stock indices as they are also commonly known, are actual stock market indexes, which measure the value of a specific section of a stock market. They are calculated based on a weighted average of the prices of selected stocks, which belong to the actual category that they represent. Stock indices can represent a specific stock market such as NASDAQ, or they can represent a specific set of the largest companies of a nation such as the American S&P 500, the British FTSE 100, or the Japanese Nikkei 225.

 

The purpose of the indices is to show the general direction of a specific stock market or of the general economy of a nation. However, since stock indices are composed of a basket of companies they can be very much affected by a big move of a specific company or by a big move of a specific sector of trade.

* Notional Value = Contract Size x Multiplier x Price

** Margin Requirement are converted to respective account currency

 

Below is an example:

 

Margin Requirement for 1 standard lot of USA30

Account leverage 1:100

 

Notional Value = Contract Size x Multiplier x Price

10 x 0.1 x 23,520.50 = 23,520.50

 

Margin Calculation = Notional Amount x Account margin requirement (1/100 = 0.01 or 1%)

23,520.05 x 1% = $235.20 margin requirement for 1.0 lot of USA 30
