Prices for other tradeable assets available on request. We have a huge range of markets, including but not limited to soft commodities, base metals and precious metals, foreign shares (e.g. China, Scandinavia, Hong Kong, Canada, Australia etc.)

Overnight financing also applies. When you hold a position overnight, you’ll pay LIBOR + 2.5%. For example, let’s assume you hold a £10k position in Lloyds, and that LIBOR (usually close to the bank of England base rate) is 0.5%. This means that you’ll pay 3% (annually) of the total position size if you hold overnight. This mean you’ll pay just 82p per night.

Of course, your rate is negotiable depending on the volume and frequency of trading, as well as the service you require. The above is based on our standard CFD account. It does not apply to spreadbetting or share dealing accounts.

*We won’t provide advice, but we can help introduce you to different concepts.
