Trade Contracts for Difference (CFDs) on the world’s major indices, oil, natural gas and metal markets.

A CFD is a derivative financial instrument that mirrors the movements of the underlying asset such as an index, energy or a metal. As it is a derivative, traders do not actually own the underlying asset, they just use it to speculate on the price movement.

CFDs are traded on ECN accounts via the MetaTrader 4 platform in the same way as FX markets and are available to all ECN account holders. CFDs allow you to diversify your portfolio by trading a wide range of financial markets on one account with all the benefits of the ECN trading model:

Trading CFDs is very similar to FX and the examples below show the commission you will pay and how to calculate your profit and loss. 

Example 1
UK100
Buy 1 lot at 6100 and sell at 6105 (a 5-tick move)
Profit = £50 (5 ticks * £10 per tick)
Commission = £4.6

Example 2
UK Brent
Buy 1 Lot at 48.20 and sell at 48.40 (a 20-tick move)
Profit = $200 (20 ticks * $10 per tick)
Commission on an ECN account = $2.41 (48.20*1000*0.005%)
