CFDs are a leveraged product and can result in losses that exceed deposits. Trading CFDs may not be suitable for everyone, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.

What are your charges for extra services like live data feeds?

For CFDs there are some extra services that we charge for.

Service Charge
Direct Market Access (DMA) There’s no charge for using DMA to trade CFDs on forex and shares, though in order to access live DMA prices for some shares you’ll need to pay a monthly exchange fee. 
Live price data feeds Obtaining live share prices from an exchange, whether that's to trade share CFDs, incurs a monthly fee.
ProRealTime Charts Subscribing to real-time charts costs R300 per month. This is refunded if you place four or more trade a month. We reserve the right to charge you for the service if your qualifying trades are of an extremely low value.
Inactivity fee We charge a R150 fee on the first of every month, if no dealing activity has occurred for two years or more. 
Account documentation fee We charge a $50 fee on accounts which have not supplied a mandatory W-8 or W-9 form prior to the dividend ex-date of a qualifying trade on a US-incorporated stock. We do not apply this fee to accounts with up-to-date documentation or accounts which have not entered into qualifying trades. We will notify you if you have entered into a qualifying trade and need to complete a form.
