Trading Forex

Forex, or FX, short for foreign exchange, is the largest and most liquid financial market in the world. Currencies play a crucial role in global trade, and their values can fluctuate rapidly due to various economic, political, and geopolitical factors.

CFD trading allows you to speculate on the price movements of currency pairs without actually owning the underlying currencies. This opens up a world of opportunities to profit in both rising and falling markets.

CFD trading offers great opportunity for those looking to participate in the FX market. One of the key benefits is leverage, which allows you to control a larger position size with a smaller amount of capital. This magnifies potential profits, but it's important to remember that it can also increase the risk of losses.

CFD trading provides the flexibility to go long (buy) or short (sell) on currency pairs, allowing traders to capitalise on both upward and downward price movements. This can be particularly advantageous in a highly dynamic and fast-paced market like FX.

When you trade Forex, you own the currency itself. FX CFDs, on the other hand, allow you to speculate on the price movements of FX without ever owning the currency. A key advantage of CFDs is that you're able to enter contracts for prices falling (going short), as well as rising (going long).

All trading comes with risk and CFD trading is no different. We strongly encourage you to take your time, do your research, and practice good risk management. We have excellent analysis tools to help you.

Leverage is similar to a loan of sorts, based on ratios. For example, if leverage is 1:100, for every $1 you put down as capital on your trade, we'll give you $100. This means that you have access to larger trade sizes without the capital outlay. This can boost any potential profits exponentially, but it may also increase losses.

All our account types offer FX CFDs, but the contract specifications in terms of spreads, lot sizes, swap values and leverage may differ from account to account. Typically, the higher tiered accounts require larger deposits, but offer more favourable conditions.
