CFD Trader We bring together lawyers of the highest calibre with technical knowledge, industry experience and regional know-how to create a bespoke team to best meet your needs. The commissions, if any, associated with CFD trading are lower than the commissions paid for trading on a stock exchange. For example, if you purchase CFDs on shares of HSBC Holdings valued at, say, £3,000, you would pay a commission of only 0.10%, or £3 (the commission for trades above €10,000 is 0.05% of the trade value). Because the margin requirement is 5%, you would be required to have only £150 in your account to open that position. Depending on whether you think the price of the CFD will go up or down, you can buy or sell a number of units of a particular instrument. For every point the price of the instrument moves in your favour, you will gain the point movement times the number of units you have traded long (up) or short (down). Likewise, for every point that the price moves against your position, you will lose the point movement times the number of units you have traded long (up) or short (down). Some trading networks (NASDAW, NYSE, CBSX, BATS, etc) offer rebates on certain types of trades. A rebate trader is less concerned with the actual amplitude of a price move than he is on cashing in on the offered rebates, and these will be where the majority of this strategy’s profits come from. It’s an interesting approach, though not one that sees terribly common use.
