Let’s say you think that a FTSE company’s shares have upside potential as result of a broker upgrade. You decide to buy exposure to £10,000 worth of shares using a CFD. To do this, you need £2,000.
For the purpose of this example, let’s assume the shares rise by 10%. Your profit would be £1,000, from your initial investment of £2,000.
Conversely, let’s assume you open the above position, and place a stop-loss at 3% from the current price. The shares fall in spite of the upgrade, they fall 3% and hit your stop-loss. Your loss would be £300.
