How much will I have to pay?

Margins

CFDs are leveraged, meaning you can win, or lose, a significant amount more than you deposit initially. This initial deposit is called margin.

Spreads and commissions

Your main payment for CFD trading is the spread – the difference between the buy and the sell price. This is our charge for executing your trade.

We charge a spread on every market except for share CFDs, which you’ll pay a commission on instead. We work to keep these charges among the lowest in the business.
