Margins

The leverage available on CFDs on equities is 1:10, meaning you only need to have 10% of the value of a position before entering it. This allows you to control a larger position with a smaller amount of money and is useful as some stocks can be quite expensive on a per share basis. As per CFI Standard Terms of Business, margin may be changed at any time without prior notice.

Spreads

Spreads on equities CFDs are variable but highly competitive and are built around a strong liquidity model that mimics the spreads of the actual exchange. Furthermore, it is not only the spreads that are identical but the entire trading environment is very similar to that of the exchange.

Competitive swaps

Swaps, also known as rollovers, are interest rate amounts charged or earned for holding a buy or sell position overnight. The calculation takes into consideration the interest rate differential between two currencies (each currency has its own interest rate).

Swaps are also applicable on Indices and vary for several reasons, including overnight interest rates.

Trading example

After recent news from Microsoft, you feel their latest product suite is likely to bring many advantages to end users and could make everyone’s lives easier. You decide to purchase 100 shares of Microsoft (Ticker: MSFT) at $139.00/share, with the total value of your trade $13,900 (139 x 100).

MSFT’s price moves higher over the next few weeks and is now trading at $144/share, you decide to sell at the mentioned price. Your total gains/losses amount to: $144 – $139 = $5/per share. Since you own 100 shares, your total gain is $5 x 100 = $500.

Please note the above example is hypothetical in nature and does not necessarily reflect real conditions.
