CFD Trading

Trade on all major global equity and commodity markets in the UK, US, Europe and Asia with contracts for difference (CFDs). These leveraged products have margin rates as low as 10% and trade free of the UK Stamp Duty.* However, profits are subject to capital gains taxes. Place orders using any of our electronic execution platforms or by voice execution through our specialist desk.

A CFD is an agreement between two parties to exchange the difference between the opening price and closing price of a contract. CFD trading allows you to profit from falling as well as rising markets and trade free of Stamp Duty Tax.* The concept of leverage allows you to trade a CFD position by depositing just a fraction of the value of the position – this in turn will magnify your profits or losses (and can result in losses in excess of your initial deposit should the market move against you).

Whether you are hedging a portfolio to offset potential losses in your physical portfolio of shares or speculating on the price movements of the underlying equity, RJO can help you maximise your goals with our service, research and technology.
