  • Speed and quality of execution - a miniCFD share transaction will typically be executed at the same speed and price as a simultaneous and identical actual share trade.
  • A miniCFD mirrors the underlying share the value of a share in a miniCFDs position is based on the market price of that same share.
  • Deal at the market price - miniCFDs will quote you a price and you can deal immediately; there is no delay in execution.


  • Trade world markets - miniCFDs are offered on most major UK, US and European stocks capitalised at over 50 million.
  • Hold your position for as long as you like - a miniCFD has no fixed settlement date. It is an open-ended contract allowing you to decide when to close your position, subject to your having sufficient funds in your account.
  • Profit from falling as well as rising markets - unlike physical assets or covered warrants, miniCFDs can be sold short.

Cost Effective:

  • Low minimum deposits and minisized CFDs
  • No Stamp Duty and no minimum commissions
  • Commission on miniCFDs is lower than normal stockbrokers commissions.
  • Magnify profit potential by only putting up a deposit or margin as initial collateral, normally 10% for blue chip companies. Bear in mind that losses can also be magnified.

Risk Management:

  • You can trade with Limited Risk by placing a Guaranteed Stop Loss. miniCFDs can guarantee, for a small charge, that your position will be closed at your chosen level, even if the market moves sharply against you.
  • Hedge your market exposure for example, in anticipation of a fall in the price of a share which you own, a short miniCFD position in the share can remove or reduce the risk.
