Ways to trade forex with IG
Flexible and accessible, CFDs (contracts for difference) allow you to go long or short on a range of currency pairs. When you trade a CFD, you’re agreeing to exchange the difference in the price of an asset from the point at which the contract is opened to when it is closed.
Spread betting allows you to take a position on whether you think a forex market will rise or fall, without having to buy or sell the underlying currency. Profits are tax-free2 and you won’t pay any commission – there’s only the dealing spread to pay.
If you are a professional trader, you can get access to our exclusive forex direct market access (DMA). This lets you trade on the physical market, without a middleman. Enjoy better pricing, higher liquidity, fast execution and greater control over your trades with DMA.
CFDs and spread bets are leveraged products, which means you can gain greater exposure to an underlying market while putting up a fraction of the full trade value. This can amplify profits but also magnify losses.
