CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 65% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider (Saxo Bank). You should consider whether you understand how CFDs, FX or any of our other products work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Register your Interest

You should also understand that unlike share trading as you do not own the shares, you will not receive the same benefits accruing from that ownership. Instead a margin of the total value of the trade is used, which can be as little as 5%, allowing positions to be leveraged by up to 20 times.

Consequently, relatively small movements can lead to substantial gains or losses because of the increased leverage. Unlike share dealing there is no settlement date and as a result positions can be held indefinitely. However these are subject to financing on the entire position, which is calculated on a daily basis.
