Capital Index have announced the launch of a new Shariah compliant Islamic trading account with a view to attracting new clients from the Middle-East and Africa. The Capital Index Islamic trading account is in strict accordance with Islamic principles and offers traders who are followers of the Islamic religion the opportunity to trade the world markets without incurring any Swap or Roll-Over fees on positions held overnight.

Many traders who follow the Islamic faith are prohibited from accepting interest (“Riba”) on their trading accounts. The absence of any Swap or Roll-Over fees on the Capital Index Islamic account means that at no point will interest be charged to the account or contained within the prices quoted.

Robert Woolfe from Capital Index explains that “attracting new customers from the Middle-East and Africa has always been part of our expansion plan. We knew that if we were going to be successful in these territories we would need to create an account that was sensitive to the religious laws of Islam. Our Shariah compliant account does exactly this. The Islamic account may not contain any swap or roll over fees but will still receive all the same benefits of our most popular ‘Advanced’ trading account. Since launch we’ve already been very encouraged by the number of traders in these regions enquiring about opening an Islamic account with us.”

Islamic Trading Account Features

The account features all of the benefits of the Capital Index Advanced trading account which includes the following:

  • No interest/Swap charges
  • No spread widening
  • No time limit placed on positions
  • No re-quotes
  • Max leverage of 1:200
  • Instant access to your trading profits
  • CFD account based in USD

Capital Index are offering a demo account for traders to try the platform before they deposit funds. You can find out more about the Islamic account by visiting their website:
