For an exceptional CFD trading experience look no further than FP Markets. You can trade share CFDs in some of the largest companies found on stock exchanges across the globe. Unlike normal stock trading, CFDs provide additional trading opportunities as you can choose between taking both a long position and short position. As a result, the CFD market caters for short-term day trading with the added benefit of leverage.
Share CFDs work differently to other financial markets as you do not actually purchase the underlying share. Instead, you exchange the price difference of the underlying instrument through a Contract For Difference (CFD). Only the margin is required to execute the trade which allows traders to purchase a number of CFDs with a minimal outlay.
You can trade CFDs on the world's most famous companies across global markets and benefit from price movements in any direction. Speculating in falling markets is one of the major attractions of CFDs and a trading strategy that is becoming more common among South Africa traders.
Choose between our Iress and MetaTrader trading platforms. Traders in South Africa can access 10,000+ Share CFDs on our Iress trading platform which provides optimal trading conditions courtesy of transparent pricing and precise execution. MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 are ideal for trading forex such as currency pairs but also offer a range of Share CFDs.
