An intelligent way to diversify your portfolio

A CFD is your agreement with CFDs to exchange the difference between opening and closing prices when the contract ends. You’re not buying / selling rights to the underlying assets, but speculating on the movement of a share, a sector or a market. Some points to note are:

  • Profits from CFDs are subject to UK capital gains tax and losses are off-settable against tax
  • CFD prices mirror the market price for the underlying holding with an explicit commission charge deducted from the account. You can even carry long positions overnight for a small additional charge
  • CFDs greatly amplify your profit potential because you deposit as little as 2% of the value of the underlying holding. Please remember though that potential losses can also be greater and you may need to deposit more funds to maintain your position. CFD trading can be High Risk and not suitable for every investor.
