Advantages of CFD Trading

Make more efficient use of your capital with Contracts for Difference

Compared to traditional share trading, CFDs have a number of distinct advantages:

  • You can bet on the price of the asset rising or falling − if you predict correctly, you can profit. So even in times when share prices are falling, you can make money with CFDs.
  • No stamp duty* or broker fees − our fee is included in our spreads – which are among the lowest you’ll find.
  • You can manage your risk easily – Spread Co’s trading platforms contain useful features such as stop loss and limit orders, which let you limit your exposure by setting a maximum or minimum price beyond which you’re not prepared to take any more risk.
  • You don’t pay the full price to buy the asset – you don’t need to stake the full value of the trade, just a deposit, which can be as low as 0.5% or 1.0%. So the cost of entry is much lower but you’re still fully exposed to the same profit potential.

*Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and tax laws can change or may differ in a jurisdiction other than the UK.
