Choosing from the best CFD trading platforms

If you are new to trading Contracts for difference, we offer a variety of free resources that you can use to help you select the broker that best meets your trading needs. We suggest that you start with the basics – ask yourself these important questions in order to find the best CFD trading platforms to suit your needs.

  • Do you need Educational tools to support your learning?
  • Are you able to check out the platform before you deposit funds?
  • How regularly are you expecting to trade and what length of time will these transactions be open for? What are the charges?
  • Does this broker offer the range of markets you need?
  • Is it important for you to trade directly with the market or via your broker?
  • Will you benefit from any special offers?
  • Is this broker regulated by a respected global authority?

Remember, CFDs are a leveraged product which means your winning trades and your losing trades are magnified. You should understand leverage before you begin to trade with real money.
