CFDs which are more commonly known as Derivatives, allow traders to gain exposure to markets without owning the underlying asset.

What is Forex?

The foreign exchange market, also known as the Forex Market, is a global marketplace for exchange-traded currencies.

Forex trading is the simultaneous act of buying one currency while selling another.

The Forex markets are open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week and trade over $7 Trillion per day.

Long & Short

By trading CFD’s you have the option to trade the financial markets whether they are falling or rising by placing Long or Short orders.

A Long, or a long position, refers to the purchase of an asset with the expectation it will increase in value, giving it a bullish attitude.

A Short, or a short position, refers to the purchase of an asset with the expectation it will decrease in value, giving it a bearish attitude.

Leverage allows traders to access more than their current balance by putting down a percentage of this which is represented as Used Margin. This allows traders to trade and access markets they simply would not have otherwise been able to.
