How to buy and sell stocks online

Shares trading

CFDs are leveraged, meaning you can gain full exposure to shares while only putting down a small deposit. While this magnifies possible profits, it does the same for losses.

They also enable you to buy and sell shares online without ever owning the underlying asset. This means you can trade both rising and falling markets.

Shares trading costs and details

Take a look at the costs and charges of CFD trading in the tables below.

  • CFD trading costs

Margin

CFDs are leveraged, so you can gain full exposure with just a small deposit, known as margin. This deposit isn’t actually a cost to you, but it can make a big difference to the affordability of your position. Your profit and loss are based on the full value of the position – not just the margin – so leverage magnifies your profits, as well as your losses.

Market CFDs Leverage equivalent
Apple 5% 1:20
Barclays PLC 5% 1:20
BHP Billiton PLC (LSE) 5% 1:20
GlaxoSmithKline PLC 5% 1:20
Vodafone Group PLC 5% 1:20

Commission

If you trade shares using CFDs, you’ll be dealing at the real market price. Instead of being charged a spread, you’ll pay a small commission to open and close your position.

Market Commission per side Min charge (online) Min charge (phone)
UK 0.10% £10 £15
US 2 cents per share $15 $25
Euro 0.10% €10 €25
