How to buy and sell stocks online

You can speculate on share prices using CFDs.

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 and losses can exceed deposits.

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 CFD costs and details

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

Margin

CFDs are leveraged, so you can gain full exposure with just a small deposit, known as margin. The margin isn’t a cost to you, but it can make a big difference to the capital you require in opening a position. You wil need to ensure you have sufficient funds in your account to maintain this margin (taking into account any running profit and losses on your account) to keep your position open. Your profit and loss are based on the full value of the position – not just the margin – so be aware that leverage magnifies your profits, as well as your losses and your losses can exceed your deposits.

Market Retail Leverage equivalent
Apple Inc (All Sessions) 10% 1:10
Barclays PLC 10% 1:10
BHP Billiton PLC (LSE) 10% 1:10
GlaxoSmithKline PLC 10% 1:10
Vodafone Group PLC 10% 1:10

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 from Min charge (online) Min charge (phone)
Singapore 0.10% $10* $15*
UK 0.10% £10 £15
US 2 cents per share US$10 US$25

What is share trading?

As IG, you can trade share via CFDs, which allows you to speculate on share price movement without owning the shares themselves. Other traders may choose to invest in shares (‘Share dealing’), which means buying and taking ownership of a company’s shares. Find out more about trading shares below.
