Advantages with CFD's

You can take both short and long positions with the same ease when trading CFDs. The margin requirements for taking a short position are the same as the ones for taking a long position and there are no additional selling rules if you want to go short.

  • Trading CFDs is far less costly than trading the underlying stock, index or futures contract and can still deliver the same gains.
  • High leverage is one of the main advantages of CFDs because it increases a trader's buying power and gives them the potential to make bigger trades by depositing a small initial amount.
  • Execution is instant so your trades are executed with no delay and there are no interferences in your transactions.
  • When trading CFDs you can profit even at times when the market is falling because you hold the great advantage of being able to take a short position.
