CFD Trading: What can be traded with CFD

The best thing about CFD is that there are a wide range of products that can be traded from one single account. No more having different accounts for stock trading, FOREX trading, futures trading, international stock trading, and etc.

Here are some of the products that I’m able to trade on my trading platform:

– Domestic Shares
– International Shares
– FOREX (Spot and Futures)
– Metals (e.g. Gold, Silver)
– Energies (e.g. Crude Oil)
– Other Commodities (e.g. Coffee, Pot Belly, Orange Juice)
– Money Market Products (e.g. Interest rate products, Bonds)
– Stock Indices (Dow Jones, FTSE 100, S&P ASX200)
– Binary
– Options

Of course, I do not trade every single one of the above mentioned instruments but I still think that CFD is a wonder of the world.

Also, bear in mind that different CFD providers offer different products but usually, the basics are the same.

So, there you go. I enjoy trading CFDs 🙂

    Hi Nadlique, may I ask what broker you are with?

  2. You mean for CFD or just traditional broker?

  3. anatrader says:

    Sorry, yes for CFD trades. I was wondering who you used and whether they were direct-to-market or market-makers.


  4. Yup 🙂

    I’m using City Index and IG Markets at the moment. Both adopt the STP (straight through processing) model. STP is basically a market-maker model, except that prices are guaranteed to be of market prices, or usually based on the underlying markets. No requotes or additional spreads.

    Though, if I’m not mistaken, IG Markets does have the option of a true Direct Market Access.

    Which CFD broker are you using currently? Are they any good?

  5. anatrader says:

    I’m using Macquarie-CFD. They’re direct-to-market but they only offer the asx200 to trade. No indeces, no forex, etc. Still they are good with their orders but I am looking for a broker that offers OS stocks at good rates. I haven’t heard of City Index. I’ll have to check them out.

    Any reason for going with two brokers?

  6. I started with City Index before I discovered IG Markets. I now primarily trade with IG Markets because I felt that they were better in executing my orders. Plus, with IG, I could trade through my mobile phone if need be.

    Another reason why I have a second broker is for contingency. You know, just in case one fails or something. Who knows, I had to go on a trade and one of the online trading platforms is down and I can’t phone them as well. Had that problem once.

    Also, I’m implementing a new trading plan at the moment, so, I thought I might use that with the second broker.

  7. ohh hello nadlique,

    wat type of leverage r u using?

    1:10, 1:5 ?

  8. Hello csb 🙂

    The leverage for the each of the products differ.

    For stocks, it varies from 1:20 to 1:1 (i.e. no leverage).

    Forex, it’s 1:50.

    The rest, they vary greatly.

    Do you trade too?
