Financial derivatives

What is a derivative financial instrument? A derivative is a contract that derives its value from the performance of an underlying asset. Derivatives include, but are not limited to, futures, swaps and contracts for difference.

CFD trading on financial instruments

A contract for difference (CFD) is a popular type of derivative that allows you to trade on margin, providing you with greater exposure to the financial markets. CFDs are a type of derivative, so you do not buy the underlying asset itself. Instead, you buy or sell units for a given financial instrument depending on whether you think the underlying price will rise or fall.

Why trade CFDs?

Trading CFDs come with many advantages. Due to CFDs being a leveraged product, they carry the advantage of only needing to deposit a fraction of the whole trade value, providing greater access to financial markets. CFDs are also exempt from any stamp duty because it is a derivative product.
