CFD trading

High-risk/high-return financial products for those seeking short-term opportunity, from the world’s No.1 provider.1

No need to own assets

CFDs are derivative products, so you can take a position without owning the assets your market’s price is based on. This gives you flexibility to trade across a huge range of markets.

Deal directly in-market

CFDs offer direct market access (DMA), which many traders find useful for hedging strategies. DMA with IG gives you increased visibility of the underlying market for forex and shares. 

Make your capital go further

You needn’t put up the full value of your position when you open, as CFDs are leveraged . However, you may have to pay that value if the market moves against you.

Go long or short

Unlike traditional investing, CFDs allow you to take advantage of both falling and rising market prices – increasing your opportunities to trade.
