About CFDs

Contracts for Difference (CFDs) are an invaluable instrument for investors trading on the financial markets, magnifying the trader’s buying power. A CFD is a contract on an underlying asset (for example, a share price, commodity or currency) to pay or receive the difference between the opening price and the closing price of the underlying asset.

CFDs allow you to trade in the financial markets without actually owning the underlying asset on which the CFD is based.

You can make money from CFDs whether the market (e.g. a share price) moves up or down. This is known as ‘going long’ (making money when the market rises) and ‘going short’ (making money when the market falls). Of course, if the market moves against you (e.g. it goes down when you went long) you’ll make a loss, much like conventional types of trading (e.g. share trading). You can perfect your trading strategy with our CFD platform trial before committing funds.

In the UK, CFD trading is popular due to the pricing benefits it offers over spread betting and the flexibility it offers over traditional derivatives, like options and futures.

Unlike options and futures, CFDs have no contract expiry. You can hold the position for as long as you choose.

Under current UK tax law, no stamp duty is payable on CFD transactions.*

CFDs are leveraged products and can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit. Risk management tools are available such as stop-losses, which can limit your risk.

*Under current UK tax law. Tax laws may be subject to change.

I have been with Accendo now for about 4 years and I have found the Accendo personnel such as Charlie, Mark and Lee to be very helpful and polite. JL, Berkshire

CFDs, spreadbetting and spot FX are leveraged products & can result in losses exceeding your initial deposit. They are not suitable for everyone, so please ensure that you understand the risks.
The value of shares can go down as well as up, so you could get back less than you invest.

Telephone calls and online chat conversations may be monitored and recorded for regulatory and training purposes.

* We provide these as underlying assets to CFDs and Spreadbets.

Since I have been trading with Accendo Markets I have experienced much greater success than has been my experience with other trading companies mainly due to the help given by, what I consider to be my terminal with the trading floor, Mark, who has been most helpful in reminding me of the progress of my positions throughout the day and keeping me in touch with those positions so that I can more easily make successful trades when appropriate instead of missing out on opportunities through lack of attention. He draws my attention to the situations and enables me to make profitable trades. I am very happy with the situation at the moment and am enjoying the experience. Thomas Irving.

I have been trading with Accendo Markets and James Abbott my account manager for coming on 5 years now, James Abbott the senior trader of Accendo Markets provides me with up to minute information when I need it and find him very easy and professional to deal with. Whenever I need to trade or am not sure about anything James is always their to help with any queries I may have. The Accendo Platform I find very easy to use and navigate although it has been slightly changed over the years but definitely for the better. Personal when I do trade 90% of the time, I rather telephone call to place my trade dealings and if James is not there to take my call I find others at Accendo like Sam, Lee take my trades and are. All in all everyone at Accendo Markets are amazing to deal with and my relationship with Accendo is just as I like it. Peter Petrou

I have been with Accendo for a long time now, ten or twelve year's, probably more . As I told Sam (my trader) I thought that CFDs were better than sex . I stopped trading for a few years and only started back about a couple of months ago. But it is as if I had never been gone , so to speak. Sam has helped me every step of the way, at my age one forgets things. I have only praise for Accendo and as far as I am concerned the platform is the best . Now I am back trading at 71 years of age, I might even try sex again. Brian Robertson.

I understand how to make a profit with CFDs. I am restricted by the range of companies I have knowledge of. Although, I am not sure that is a big problem. Tom Robertson is a very fine man.

Well, I would not be trading without the help of my trader, Sam Alnakkash. He provided a really great overview of Accendo Markets, an insight into trading in general and how to get started in trading online. His advice, support and training has been fantastic all along the way, enabling me to start trading earlier than I would have done had I not had the support. He has also been very adept at understanding me as a client in order to help me achieve my trading goals. I still have a lot to learn and hope I will get there.

I like the updates on shares I trade. Updates from Bloomberg and Reuters plus industry updates and breaking news. I've had Matt Grice and James Abbott and found both to be excellent. I would like to continue a personal service with James. He understands how and which stocks I trade.

My account manager Aymen has provided unbiased professional advice since day one. He allows me to trade at my own pace and is not pushy at all unlike most other brokers. Aymen is an extremely valuable asset to his Company and I would highly recommend Aymen and Accendo Markets.

Having an individual on call to help me, as a complete novice gives me the confidence to try trades to see what happens. The platform is very easy to use.
