Sectors trading

Take advantage of strength or weakness in a particular industry with a sector CFD. We offer more than 35 UK and Australian sectors, including banking, mining and general retailers.

Benefits

  • Protect against company-specific news that could see an individual stock buck the overall trend of the sector

  • Target gains within a specific sector rather than dilute profits with an overall index position

  • There tends to be less volatility across a whole sector than in individual shares

When might you trade on sectors?

  • To take a position based on knowledge or news about a particular sector
  • To hedge against weakness in a sector within a strong overall index
