What are CFDs and how to trade on them?

CFD stands for a Contract for price Difference. The essence of trading on this type of instrument is to have an option to follow the price whenever it goes, up or down. 

The main peculiarity of CFDs is the ability not only to buy assets as classic investors do but also to initially sell them without ownership. When you open a position to Buy stocks, you do not obtain the rights of a shareholder, as well as when opening a trade to Sell gold, you will not have an obligation to physically send gold bars to anyone in the world.

Conotoxia Ltd. provides you with 5000+ CFDs to choose from. They are split by many asset classes: Currencies CFD, Energies CFD, Metals CFD (Commodities), Futures CFD, Indices CFD, Stocks CFD, ETFs CFD, Single Stocks CFD, Single ETFs CFD, and Cryptocurrencies CFD.

What is the trading leverage?

The leverage mechanism increases the possibilities to buy and sell financial instruments on a trading platform. The use of leverage could have the effect of increasing or decreasing the required margin for a given transaction. At the time a trade is opened, funds are designated as the margin, in addition to remaining 'frozen' on the trading platform for as long as the position is open and becoming available again when the trade is fully closed. For example, using a leverage of 1:30 means that your broker will increase the buying or selling power by 30 times, allowing you to open a higher volume trade.

At Conotoxia Ltd., you can choose your preferable trading leverage according to your experience and client’s category: Retail, Experienced, and Professional.
