Contracts That Make a Difference

What are CFDs and How Do You Trade Them?

Looking for a way to enjoy more trading flexibility with no boundaries of minimum capital? CFDs or Contracts for Difference are available on different types of assets and are flexible methods of trading financial instruments. They’re derivative products that make it easy for you to trade on market price movements of financial assets. CFDs allow you to make a profit from both falling and rising markets without being the owner of the instrument you have chosen to trade. By definition, they are an agreement to exchange the difference in the value of an asset from the time the contract is opened until the time at which it is closed.

CFDs You Can Trade with Us

To ensure your trading needs are met, we offer trading opportunities on 5 asset classes (Stocks, Indices, Commodities, ETFs & ETNs, Cryptocurrencies) along with access to mini CFDs on major indices like DAX and DOW.

You can find additional information on each of the trading options, and you can also receive professional guidance from experienced and proven traders. No matter whether you’re a beginner looking to try different trading strategies and learn new things or you’re a pro looking to grow your portfolio, you can take advantage of our diverse and reliable trading platforms and available solutions.

Why Trade CFD's?

Trade On Leverage

Spend less capital and free up more money to invest with CFDs. Because they’re traded on leverage, you only need a small portion of the total trade value to open your position.

Ability To Go Short

Enjoy more flexibility and trade long or short. With CFDs, it’s possible to short sell an instrument without owning it and benefit from falling prices at any time

Improved Money Management

Take advantage of better money management and trade or define your position size with more precision with CFDs. You can even trade mini lots on some indices in order to maximize your risk management even more.

Hedge Your Portfolio

Offset any losses in your portfolio by short selling and minimize your exposure by using CFDs trading to lower your investment risk. If stock prices drop, you can take advantage of a stock CFD and short sell without selling any real stocks.

Transparent Pricing With CFDs

Get maximum transparency in pricing and don’t worry about knock-out barriers. Pricing reflects 1:1 the price change of the underlying instrument, meaning that a share CFD normally has the same price as the share itself.

No Runtime Limitation With Spot CFDs

Keep your open positions running for as long as you choose as CFDs on single stocks, ETFs, ETNs, cash indices, and crude oil don’t have an expiration date.

No Stamp Duty

Save on each trade and enjoy this cost-effective form of trading. Benefit from the price movement without worrying about paying stamp duty as you don’t really own the underlying instrument.

Round-The-Clock Trading

Trade even when the reference market is closed. Some of the CFDs that we offer can be traded both during opening times and closed times. Find out more about the current trading times of indices, commodities that can be traded with JFD in our Contract Specifications.

Any Questions?

How can I benefit from CFDs?

The main advantage of CFDs is that they make your trading more cost-effective. You can trade as low as 0,10 EUR per point and you’re only investing in a portion. CFDs are an over the counter or OTC product. They base themselves on underlying instruments like shares, futures, or spot indices. However, futures could be expensive - if you are trading 1 future on the DAX, 1 point equals 25 Euros.

With JFD, you can take advantage of low spreads and minimal commissions. See our Contract Specifications for more details. In addition, you will benefit from more flexibility and more precise risk management. You’ll have the opportunity to open the position size you need and go short. Enjoy these benefits on a more granular level with mini CFDs.

How will trading CFDs with JFD give me an overall better trading experience?
By trading CFDs with JFD, you are not just a small client facing a large giant. We offer clients anonymity and transparency, guaranteeing that your interests are protected. We act as intermediaries between you and the liquidity providers. All of your orders are recorded and processed with precision.

Trading CFDs with JFD instead of directly with Market Makers is always better as we have your best interests in mind.

Are there any risks in CFD trading?
Just like any form of trading, there are risks and opportunities. CFDs are extremely flexible and require a high degree of risk management. As leveraged products, you’re only trading on margin and deposit only a fraction of the total position value. Please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved, by reading our full Risk Disclosure.
Does JFD pay dividends on CFDs?

Yes, depending on the CFD type.

When trading CFDs on stocks, indices, or ETFs:

If you hold a BUY (long) position, your trading account will be credited with the net dividend (dividend after taxes).
If you hold a SELL (short) position, the gross dividend (dividend before taxes) will be deducted from your available balance.

The transaction will be reflected on your trading account instantly on the ex-dividend date.

You can find all transactions related to dividends in your account history or your daily account statement.
