When you trade CFDs you do so with leverage - meaning you can win, or lose, a significant amount more than your initial deposit - called your margin. Though not actually a cost to you, the margin you pay makes a big difference to the affordability of your forex trade.
Your key payment for trading CFDs on forex is the spread – the difference between the buy and the sell price – our charge for executing your trade. We work to keep our spreads among the lowest in the business.
