  • GFD's


    CFDs or contracts for difference offer an alternative way of trading shares and a host of other tradable financial investments with a much lower outlay and lower cost than investing in them directly.

    Popular CFD tradable investments include gold and oil, foreign currencies, managed funds listed on share markets and CFD versions of special contracts that trade movements in popular market indexes like the American Dow Jones Industrial shares index and the S&P500 indices, the London Financial Times index and the Japanese Nikkei 225 Index. Index CFDs allow you to trade movements in markets as distinct from price movement of individual investments like shares.

    Geared products like CFDs can help you make the most effective use of your investment capital, but it is important to appreciate that the amount you could lose relative to your initial investment is greater for geared products than for non-geared products.

    Go Long or Short

    With CFDs you can buy or sell at the quoted price, to profit from rising or falling markets. Other methods of shorting shares are often inconvenient and expensive.

    Wide Access

    CFDs can be used to trade an extremely wide range of financial products and this means they offer a way to easily start trading across a large cross-section of the market. For example, if you have an interest in shares, the level of Wall Street, the price of oil and the exchange rate of the Euro against US dollar, you can trade all of these markets with one CFD provider on one account.
