Why trade ETF CFDs?

What we offer are contracts-for-difference (CFDs) on ETFs. In trading CFDs, you're not purchasing or selling your stake in an ETF on a particular exchange. Rather, you're expressing a view on the underlying price of the ETF. This means you can go long and short without restrictions, since there's no ownership interest. 

If you anticipate a particular market sector or region to experience a decline in growth and value, you can short an ETF CFD in the same, straight-forward manner as you would buy an ETF CFD were you to see it appreciating in value.

ETF CFDs also enable you to trade with leverage, which means you only need a portion of the notional value of your trade to enter it, reducing your capital requirements. This means you can trade more, and expose your capital to a wider array of opportunities.

There are a number of other advantages listed below, and like any financial asset, there are risks involved.

Advantages:

Trade any ETF long or short – potentially profiting from any direction of the ETF. Trade movement on core markets, interesting themes and often hard to access markets.

Trade on leverage – place a percentage of the notional USD face-value down, and make your capital go further.

Cost-effective – 2 cents a share allows for traders to be highly active in their trading approach.

Use automated trading strategies and apply a diverse range of risk management strategies on the powerful MT5 platform.

React real-time - Trade some of the most liquid ETFs in the pre-and post-market session.

Diversification - Rather than trading one specific stock, ETFs offer diversification to a market theme, as well as making that theme incredibly intuitive.

Risks:

Leveraged trading imposes additional risk of loss to your capital.

No ownership interest - you don’t own a share in the underlying ETF when you trade CFDs, so you are not entitled to some benefits that ordinary investors would be.

Spreads - while we provide exchange spreads for our ETF CFDs, like any market the underlying spread may widen during periods of volatility, increasing your costs.

ETF closures - the provider may cease managing the fund, resulting in liquidation and dispersion of funds.
