Top traders take advantage
of falling markets

Get the added flexibility of trading on rising or falling markets with CFDs.

In the same way that prices can rise, they can fall. In times of extreme volatility, traders can either profit in a down market or protect the downside of existing investments in their portfolio by hedging. Short-selling1 allows you to trade on a market even when the market is falling.

At IG, you can short-sell CFDs just as easily as you can buy them. When opening a trade, you simply click 'sell' instead of 'buy' if you are expecting an underlying security to fall.

1Short-selling is the practice of selling an asset that you don't actually own, in the hope that the price will decline and you can buy it back in the future at a lower level. You can keep the difference between the price at which you sold the assets and the lower price you paid to buy them back.
