ICM trading now provides detailed information on CDF leverage and margins. Leverage trading or trading on margin, means a trader is not required to put up the full value of the position. However, there are some important distinctions between trading stocks on margin and trading CFDs on margin.
CFD trading offers more leverage than stocks and futures-up to 200 times the value of the deposited funds in the trading account. Therefore, at 200:1 leverage, a trader needs only to put up $50 to trade $10,000 worth of an index or commodity. However, unlike trading in stocks, CFD traders do not need credit approval to trade on margin. If the value of the CFD position falls to a certain level, ICM will close out all positions so a trader will never owe more than what the trader initially deposited.
A CFD (contact for difference) takes the form of an agreement to exchange the difference between the opening and closing prices of a particular instrument. Unlike a share trader or a commodity trader who makes a profit by buying and selling the underlying stock or commodity being traded, a CFD never owns the instrument being traded.
