When applied to Contract for Difference (CFD) trading, Direct Market Access (DMA) describes a type of trading that allows traders direct access to the underlying market, for example the stock market. Instructions are sent straight to the exchange with no dealer intervention implying transparency. Because a DMA provider allows direct access to markets by the trader, all trades are hedged. This type of CFD dealing, often referred to as DMA CFDs, is becoming increasingly popular in Europe.

Direct Market Access offers CFD traders all the benefits of trading with conventional securities but with the added advantage of leverage gained by margin trading. Without Direct Market access a trader is only allowed to buy a share at the set offer price but Direct Market Access allows CFD traders to place an order for a share wherever they want to, including within the spread. Therefore, DMA CFDs give the trader the ability to join the bid or offer queue, and participate in the true market depth of the underlying stock.

Direct Market Access CFD providers can offer a wide range of additional underlying markets, although not all DMA. Traders wishing to trade forex, commodities or indices will need to make use of a market maker provider as Direct Market Access trading is only suitable for stocks. However, they are ideally suited to high capital traders who wish to personally execute trades in the underlying market.

DMA CFD trading has the advantage of giving traders the opportunity to enter or exit trades at a better price giving them an advantage over traders using a market maker. When a DMA CFD trader inputs an order it is immediately reflected on the exchange and therefore affects the price of the share that the CFD is based on. Thus, DMS CFD traders are said to be ‘price makers’ as they have the ability to directly influence the market.

For a nominal monthly fee, it is possible for CFD traders trading via direct market access to subscribe to exchange market data. Traders subscribing to exchange market data have access to real time quotes and statistics, allowing them to see how many buyers and sellers there are at each individual price level. They will also have access to the order queues, enabling improved execution. If you want to take advantage of small price changes fast (for example day traders or scalpers making frequent deals) then trading CFDs using a direct market access model is an ideal trading tool.

You can trade CFDs through award winning Accendo Markets, where we offer the best online trading platforms along with personal service, if it is personal service you want.

since signing up for Accendo I have had two traders, Mark and Sam. I have found both of these to be very informative about how CFD's work and they have made it very easy for me. Since working with Sam (last four months) my trading knowledge has improved and I can make more informative decisions about which Company's to invest with. Keep up the good work Sam.

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.
