The margin on CFDs on ETF’s is around 10% for most products. This allows you to control a larger position with a smaller amount of money and is useful as some ETFs can be quite expensive on an individual basis. CFI’s Standard Terms of Business states that margins may be changed at any time without prior notice.
Spreads on ETF CFDs are variable but highly competitive and are built around a strong liquidity model. Our charges are usually incorporated in the spread for most instruments that we offer
Swaps, also known as rollovers, are interest rate amounts charged or earned for holding a buy or sell position overnight. The calculation takes into consideration the interest rate differential between two financial instruments. Swaps are also applicable on CFDs on ETFs and vary for several reasons, including overnight interest rates. Swap free accounts are also available.
