Learn about the differences between spread bets and CFDs

Leverage enables you to trade on the full market value, while only paying a deposit (known as margin). But bear in mind that while gaining full market exposure through leverage can increase your profits, it can also amplify your losses. So, taking measures to mitigate your risk is essential.

How to sell Kanabo shares: investing or trading

You can sell physical Kanabo shares via share dealing. If Kanabo’s share price has increased since you took a position to buy them, you can make a profit if you sell. Alternatively, you can sell if the share price is below what you paid for the stock – closing your position can mitigate the risk of losing more money. However, you might also miss out on a profit if the share price rises after you have closed your position.
