How much will I have to pay?
CFD trading is a form of leveraged trading. This means you can win, or lose, a significant amount more than you deposit. Though not actually a cost to you, the margin you pay makes a big difference to the affordability of your trade.
Your key payment for trading CFDs is the spread, the difference between the buy and the sell price – essentially our commission for executing your trade. We work to keep our spreads among the lowest in the business.
