Types of CFDs

Here at ICM Capital, we continuously strive to bring to our clients the widest variety of tradable CFDs and futures available on the market, and as part of this progress, we bring to you Cash CFDs. We are delighted to announce the availability of Cash CFDs for ICM Capital clients, allowing for more trade capabilities and diversity, while maintaining optimal market execution.

Learn more about Cash CFDs

The advantage of trading cash CFDs is that Direct Market Access (DMA) mirrors the price of the underlying CFD price with only a very small variable spread added to each asset. The spread can vary depending on the instrument being traded as well as the volatility and liquidity of the financial market. ICM Capital has access to a range of major Tier1 banks meaning we can pass on the best bid and ask prices currently available on the market for a range of indices and commodities. Your choice of product and type of CFD all depends on your trading strategy. Future CFDs will have an end date linked to the contract which usually renews every 3 months, whereas Cash CFDs do not have a pre-defined expiry date.

Trading Example

The underlying instrument for one of Germany’s DAX CFDs is one share of the DAX30 Spot Index. If the DAX Index is traded at 11261.1 (sell price) / 11262.1 (buy price) for example, then the bid-ask quote would be linked to the underlying price and the spread would be $1. It is always the case that when you open a position that your trade will show a loss. This is because $1, in this example, is the amount the market has to move in your favour to make a profit and before you make back the charge from the spread in this example.

No swaps will be offered on any positions under ICM Standard accounts. ICM Capital reserves the right to discontinue an Islamic/SWAP-free account without warning. ICM Capital will invoke this right in case of suspicion of abuse, in which case ICM Capital may, at its sole discretion, decide to close all open positions in the account and deduct or add swaps for all transactions currently and/or previously made in the account and decline from accepting any further requests from the Client to be exempted from SWAP.

While using higher leverage can significantly increase your profits, it equally can work against you as it involves greater risks to your capital. If the currency underlying one of your trades moves in leverage will greatly amplify your potential losses. It is possible for you to lose more than your initial deposit so please ensure CFD trading meets your investment objectives and seek independence advice and trading style that includes the use of stop and limit orders.
