CFDs open a world of trading opportunities. With fewer restrictions on what you can trade, which markets you can trade in and how much it will cost, you can literally trade 24 hours a day, – commission free for FX, index and commodity CFDs..
Foreign exchange (FX)
FX CFDs speculate on the performance of a simultaneous swap of one currency against another. Their appeal is the highly liquid and volatile nature of what is the largest global trading market – that offers greater control over your buy/sell timing, and the price at which you buy/sell, with more trading opportunities and greater profit potential.
Once only available to institutional investors, at City Index you can trade over 40 currency pairs with consistently competitive spreads.
Trade on a more macro economic level, diversify your portfolio and reduce your exposure to individual company risk by trading indices. Use readily available market information and trade the performance of indices such as the Australian 200, which directly reflects the movements of the top 200 ASX shares. City Index offers a comprehensive range of indices including the CMI 300, German 30 and the Dow S&P 500.
Commodity CFDs allow you to trade the performance of an entire sector. Trade a position on gold or oil without individual company risk exposure, with increased portfolio diversification and a bigger picture perspective. With City Index you can trade commodity CFDs including metals, energy, soft commodities and grains.
Whether you’re interested in multi national or small cap company performance you can trade thousands of share CFDs across exchanges such as the ASX, LSE, NASDAQ and HKSE – from a single City Index trading account. Go long or short with the potential to be paid financing and dividends, with lower trading costs than physical shares, at a fraction of the price.
The global possibilities of CFDs extend even further to less traditional instruments and exchanges such as treasuries and interest rate products, ETFs including Gold tracker and China tracker, and MTFs such as the Chi-X. Importantly for you, if we don’t offer an instrument that you want, just tell us and we’ll add it.
