Ejemplos de operaciones con CFD

La mejor forma de comprender cómo funcionan los CFD es seguir algunos ejemplos.

Ejemplo de CFD: compra de Vodafone

Assume you want to buy 1000 Vodafone CFDs and the exchange price stands at 214.9-215.0p. Your CFD position will be opened at the upper price of 215.0p. The full contract value of this position is 1000 x 215.0p or £2150, but to open the contract you need only put down a margin deposit.

Precio de COMPRA250.0
Precio de VENTA268.3
N.º de CFD1000
Beneficio bruto£183

While your position is open we will adjust your account for overnight financing and any dividends should Vodafone go ex-dividend. (For more information on these adjustments see CFD Trading Costs.)

Suppose a fortnight later Vodafone shares have risen steadily and the market price now stands at 233.3-233.4p. You can now close your CFD position by selling at the bid price of 233.3p. Your commission to close this position will be 0.1% x £2333 = £2.33.

To calculate your net profit you should add or subtract any overnight financing and dividend adjustments.

Ejemplo de CFD: vender en Wall Street

Supongamos que quiere ir corto en Wall Street. Nuestra cotización para el índice al contado tiene un spread de negociación de 1 punto, y sería 17463-17464. Significa que puede vender a 17463, el límite inferior de nuestra cotización. Un contrato de CFD en Wall Street vale 1 $ por punto sobre el índice. Si quiere arriesgar 3 $ por punto, deberá vender 3 CFD a 17463.

Precio de VENTA
Precio de COMPRA17339
Diferencia124 puntos
Riesgo por punto
Beneficio bruto2

Assume our Wall Street price falls to 22137.4-22139.0 and you decide to close your CFD position by buying at the ask price. Again, there is no commission to pay. To calculate your net profit you should also add or subtract your accumulated overnight financing and any dividend adjustments. For examples of how overnight financing is calculated please see the FAQs.
