LONDON, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
DF Markets offers traders easy access to a variety of financial markets through a professional yet user friendly CFD trading platform.
The following article presents the features and benefits of the DFTrader CFD trading platform provided by DF Markets.
CFD trading is an easy way to access the world markets. It has numerous advantages which include:
- The ability to access multiple markets with a single account Trade using margin. Contracts for Differences (CFDs) are traded on margin so you can enter the market with a fraction of the actual capital needed.
- You can benefit from both rising and falling markets.
CFD Trading Platform
The DFTrader desktop CFD trading platform offers unparalleled flexibility and a user-friendly interface for investors looking to trade on the world markets. Once installed on your PC, the platform can be further customized to ensure the best trading experience.
With this trading software you have access to a variety of trading instruments such as major and exotic currency pairs, CFDs on over 700 Shares, CFDs on Indices, CFDs on Futures and CFDs on Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).
With the DFTrader platform you can benefit from a variety of trading orders, which give both experienced and novice traders the opportunity to implement different trading strategies.
In addition to the usual Limit, Stop Loss, and Conditional orders, we have added a new order type called Good-After-Time. It can be used for trading the markets during trading hours which are inconvenient for you. For example, if you want to buy HSBC shares on the Hong Kong market, but the market opens during the night in your time zone. So instead of waiting to place the order yourself, you can simply use the Good-After-Time order by specifying the exact time at which you wish the order to be executed.
One of the major advantages of CFD Trading is the lower trading costs, as opposed to traditional Share trading. Not only are CFDs traded on margin, thus requiring a fraction of the actual cost to open a position, but also the minimum amount to open a CFD trading account is lower. For instance, DF Markets imposes no minimum requirements for opening a trading account. In fact, you can start trading with whatever amount you feel comfortable with. Hence, you can test your trading strategies without the need to invest a large amount of money. In any case, your funds are protected according to the rules imposed by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) – up to 50,000 GBP. DF Markets participates in this scheme in order to ensure the maximum protection of clients’ funds.
The commissions associated with CFD trading are lower than the commissions paid for trading on a stock exchange. For example, if you purchase CFDs based on Shares of Bank of America Corp. valued at, say, 1000 EUR, you would pay a commission of only 0.10% of the trade size for that particular trade. Because the margin requirement is 5%, you would be required to have 50 EUR in your account to open that position. Also, there is a rollover commission for holding positions overnight, which is based on the central bank’s interest rate.
DF Markets also offers CFDs traded on 100% margin, also called “cash CFDs”. By opening a cash CFD position, you pay the actual costs of the underlying asset. In addition, no rollover is charged for such positions. This type of trading is very close to trading actual shares, with the benefit of lower costs and minimum amounts required to enter the market because the minimum number of CFDs you can buy is one.
