An instrument to trade – the CFD

Why trade CFD’s?


  • Because CFD’s is a leveraged product, you have greater exposure to the market with a smaller amount of capital
  • CFD’s can be traded long or short, thereby profiting off rising or falling markets
  • Stop orders and take profit orders can be used when trading CFD’s which helps you manage your risk/profits
  • You can stay in a CFD trade for as long as you wish as there is no expiry date
  • Usually you benefit from dividend payments (at the discretion of the brokerage)
  • If a trader holds a long CFD on a stock during a dividend payment period, they will receive payment for that dividend on the ex-dividend date, from the brokerage company
  • If a trader holds a short position on a stock, they will be charged for the dividend on the ex-dividend date


  • As CFD’s are leveraged, both profits and losses are magnified
  • You pay interest (swaps) for each day you hold the share overnight. Trading CFD’s is therefore not recommended for long term traders
  • You do not own the share, therefore you have no voting rights

Many people enjoy the leverage that trading a CFD offers. The capital outlay is less and the rewards amplified. If you know the risk involved and manage this risk, trading CFD’s can be very rewarding.

Your classes are so amazing, the energy, mindblowing info that forces us to think out of the box and to actually care about what’s happening out there, it’s truly amazing! This info is truly helping me to be able to set my trades right as I am still working on it but ay it’s much clearer now, and am from next week I’ll start to analyse 1 pair a day!!
