Like all financial products, CFD trading carries risk. If the market moves against you, you lose money. However, as CFDs are a leveraged product, the risks can be greater – with the possibility of losses exceeding deposits.
With an IG CFD trading account, you can manage your exposure using a range of risk management tools, including stops and automated alerts. We’ll also help you learn the essentials of risk management, and you can practise your strategies using a demo account.
It's also important to read and understand our account information documents before you get started, including the PDS and Customer agreement (PDF).
