Frequently asked questions


What is the difference between trading physical shares and CFD shares?

Put simply, CFD shares carry leverage whereas physical shares don’t. By trading a CFD share you are speculating on the price of the underlying asset, you are not taking ownership of it. The leverage you get with CFD shares will amplify both profits and losses. With physical shares you can only lose the amount you spent to acquire them. This is why buying physical shares is more of a long-term strategy, where you are looking to cash in years down the line, not in a week or two, as would be typical of trading CFD shares.


How can I start trading share CFDs?

If you’re just starting out as a trader in your spare time, it pays to study and practice trading stocks on a demo account before jumping in feet first. As with any asset, there are many ways to trade stocks. Others will opt to trade over a few days or weeks. A lot depends on how much time you want to invest in trading and analysing your charts.

How can I trade share CFDs using the fxTrade app?

Once you have downloaded and installed our user-friendly mobile app, you can log into your account(s) using a single login. From there you can trade shares. If you have more than one MT5 account, you can switch from one account to the next without having to log out and log in again.


How do corporate actions impact CFDs?

Corporate actions are events such as dividends and bonus issues of shares carried out by a publicly-traded company that impact its shareholders and, similarly, the price of share CFDs.
