Advantages of CFD trading

icon

Go Long or Go Short

CFD trading allows investors to trade with high flexibility, and the opportunity to make money in falling markets without having to invest a lot of capital, making it a more flexible way to invest. CFD trading is often used for speculative purposes, that is trades are based on predicted future market price changes. CFD trading can cause losses.

icon

Margin trading

CFD is typically used for margin trading, which means that traders only need to deposit a portion of the actual trading size in each transaction. For example, if you have a CFD transaction worth £1000 (whether short or long) and your supplier's margin requirement is 4%, that means you just need £40 to open a position.

icon

Flexible number of lots

In general, it is recommended that investors with less experience should trade with a smaller lot number until a successful trading strategy is developed, while experienced investors may choose to put more capital at risk so that they do not feel constrained by their trading structure

icon

Wide Market

Investors can trade CFD in the UK, the US, Europe and Asia.

icon

Leverage

CFD is a leveraged product that allows investors to trade for a fraction of the total value of the contract. When you trade leveraged products, leverage may amplify your return on investment. The potential rewards may be huge, but at the same time brings a greater risk. A higher leverage may lead to a substantial loss which exceed your initial savings.

icon

Position hedging

The way an investor used to limit the potential risk of market volatility is to implement "hedging" positions. For example, if you lose money on many of your CFD orders, you can keep your value by shorting

Index transaction

Trading CFDs on indices is an enduringly attractive proposition, allowing you to flex your trading strategy to market conditions. With HMLV you can trade the most popular CFDs on Indices, taking advantage of some of the tightest spreads in the market as well as an advanced, customisable MT4 platform and free, comprehensive market intelligence.

Go Long or Go Short

CFDs trading allows investors to make profit in a falling market without injection of huge capital, which makes them a more flexible way of investing (but investors can also incur losses). CFD trading is mainly used for speculative purposes, and that's why investors may trade it with future market price, no matter the original price of the product is up or down. If you believe the price is going to fall, you may go short and sell the CFD; if your prediction is correct, you will benefit from it. Here is an example of a CFD trading: If you believe that the UK 100 will rise in value, you may request a quote via the Hantec MT4 trading platform. You see a spread of 5293.5 - 5294.5 points, and you then buy at 5294.5 (the minimum amount with Hantec Markets is 1 CFD). This is an equivalent of £ 1 per point movement of the index. If the price moves up to 5394.5 - 5395.5 and you sell at 5394.5, you would realize a 100 point profit of (the price you sell for 5394.5) minus (price you bought for 5294.5). As you have placed 1 CFD trade, you would make a profit of £ 100 (£1 times 100 points). Please bear in mind that if the market fails, you would suffer a loss [(opening price - closing price) x CFD amount].

Leverage

CFDs are leveraged products that allow you to trade by only paying a fraction of the total value of the contract. Compared with spot trading of stock, trading a leveraged product will potentially magnify your return on investment, but will also come with a greater risk. The higher leverage can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit.

Range of Markets

Investors can trade CFD in the UK, the US, Europe and Asia.
