Direct Market Access (DMA) CFDs are derivative instruments that provide traders with fast and transparent access to the world’s global financial markets.
Contracts for Difference
Contracts for Difference (CFD) is a tradable instrument that mirrors the movements of the asset underlying it. It allows for profits or losses to be realised when the underlying asset moves in relation to the position taken, but the actual underlying asset is never owned. Essentially, it is a contract between the client and the broker.
CFDs provide much higher leverage than traditional trading. Standard leverage in the CFD market begins as low as 10%. With lower margin requirements, our client can input lesser capital outlay to gain greater potential returns.

Leverage means that the product is traded on a margin. The gains or losses on a leveraged product are magnified even though the price movement may be small.
Excessive price movement that is against your open position may expose you to losses greater than your initial margin deposit.
