CFD essentials

What is a CFD?

A flexible vehicle for trading long or short of shares and other underlying financial markets

Why trade CFDs?

Trade at tight spreads without making a physical purchase: no large initial outlay and no stamp duty*

No commission to trade equities

Leading UK and US shares just 0.08%

Instead of commission we add a small additional spread per side to the market spread for equities
