FAQs

How are Share CFDs different to cash equities?
In a standard share transaction, when buying a share or multiple shares, you will need to have 100% of the value of the shares immediately. Let’s say you want to buy 1 Alphabet (Google) share at $2000 USD. You will need the full $2000 upon entering the trade. In a Share CFD transaction, your margin requirement is 5%20%, meaning you only have a margin requirement of $100 (5%*$2000)$400 (20%*$2000). With a Share CFD, the costs are generally lower and your dollar can go further.

What are the commissions on US Share CFDs?
For a limited time, true to our mission of lowering your costs to trade, we've decided to waive all commissions on US Share CFDs.
Are there any other fees?
Each day, depending on whether you are long or short, you will need to pay overnight financing charges. These are updated daily and are available within your MetaTrader 5 platform.
Will I receive any dividends?
Yes, if you are holding shares on the long side, you will receive any dividends that are owed to you. Similarly, if you are shorting (selling) shares, you will be deducted the equivalent dividend.
Why can't I open a position?
If you see the message that "only position closing is allowed", please ensure you are aware of earnings report releases.

Earnings releases can be high-impact events, and usually take place while the market is closed for trading. To reduce the risk of negative balances occurring during these announcements, some trading instruments may change to close-only ahead of earnings releases, or other changes to margin requirements may occur.

This is only temporary and once earnings reports are released, you will be able to open trades on the instrument as normal.

If your issue is unrelated to earnings reports, please contact support to further investigate your issue.
