CFDs are traded on leverage, meaning you pay only a small fraction of the total trade value to open your position rather than paying for it in full, this is known as margin.
CFD trading in the UK is free from stamp duty, with the exception of Irish stocks, which are charged 1% of the notional trade value.
At City Index, we provide CFDs on thousands of individual markets including shares, indices, currencies, commodities, interest rates and sectors. So if you believe that a company or market will experience a loss of value in the short term, you can use CFDs to sell it today, and your profits will rise in line with any fall in that price. You can use CFDs to gain instant exposure on all major global markets including the UK, US, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Furthermore, we run a number of our markets 24 hours a day, including major indices such as the UK 100 and Wall Street, meaning you can trade CFDs even if the underlying markets are closed.
Our margins for the UK 100 and Wall Street start at just 1.5%, while margins for our major currency CFDs start from just 1%.
CFDs are therefore a flexible alternative to trading the movements of market prices as they enable you to benefit from any move, regardless of whether the markets are rising or falling. Should Vodafone share prices fall by 5% in the underlying market, the loss in value of your share portfolio would be offset by a gain in your short sell CFD trade.
