FAQ

CFDs – Contracts for Difference – are derivative financial instruments in which the Bank trades as direct counterparty in each transaction. The value of the contract is based on the difference between the price of an asset when the position is open and the price of the same asset when the position is closed.

With our CFDs you can trade on indices, stocks, forex, commodity and bond futures without hidden fees, forgetting about uncountable pips or big markups and paying only minimal spreads/markups. * You have at your disposal advanced tools, interactive charts, automatic orders and a platform for your needs: a full suite for your trading, all in one screen.

* Overnight position charges apply based on value and duration. 0.06% markup per side on FTSE250 stock CFDs apply.

The CFD trading service allows you to trade CFDs with different types of underlying assets, including currencies, stocks, indices and future on commodities and bonds, to diversify your investments. CFD Trading is leverage based, which means that you can create a position by using only a portion of the cash needed to open the same position in the underlying asset. For instance if the Apple stock is trading at $150 and you wish to buy 10 stocks, your investment is worth $1,500. However if you wish to open the same position in Apple stock CFD with a leverage of 20% (5 to 1) you will only need 20% of that value, which is $300.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 68.03% of retail investor accounts lose money due to CFD trading with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Yes, there is.

Yes, you can. For example, with our Contracts for Difference (CFDs) with underlying currencies, indices, stocks and commodity futures, you can trade the market in any direction and in any condition with up to 30:1 leverage (which varies according to the underlying asset) using only a percentage of the value of the position to get full market exposure.

There is no minimum deposit required to trade CFD. However the account must be funded to trade and the amount depends on the price of the instrument you wish to trade.

For instance you can trade the minimum lot of the Cable (GBPUSD) with around £ 250, of the FTSE100 Index CFD with around £ 350, of the Apple stock with around £ 24, (for 1 CFD) and so on.

Before trading CFDs, or other derivatives instruments please read carefully the Key Information Documents (KIDs) available on the website finecobank.co.uk

A CFD is a financial derivative, that you can buy or sell with FinecoBank as your direct counterparty. Its value is directly related to that of an underlying asset (securities, indices, currencies, futures on bonds, futures on volatility indicators and futures on commodities) and consequently follows the price movement of the underlying asset. In particular, when CFDs trading your profit/loss is given by the difference in value between the opening price and the subsequent closing price of the contract. The opening price and the closing price are determined by the Bank applying, if appropriate, a mark-up or a spread on the underlying price to the extent indicated by the economic conditions at the time. CFDs are characterised by a strong leverage effect. This means that a relatively small price movement in the underlying market will have a proportionally higher impact on the value of your margined position and an unfavourable price movement may result in losses exceeding your initial margin deposit (increasing underlying price for short positions, decreasing for long positions). CFD Positions open for more than one business day (overnight) are subject to a multi-day position fee.
The spreads applied to CFDs may be changed at any time within the contractually agreed limits.

Multi-currency is a multi-currency service ancillary to the euro bank account. It allows debiting and/or crediting transactions in the service currencies and is necessary for some online trading services involving financial products in currencies other than the euro.

A currency exchange transaction is subject to foreign exchange risk, i.e., the possibility that the purchased currency may depreciate against the reference currency.

1 Activation of the service is free, however a spread is applied to the exchange rate (Currency Exchange) to the extent indicated in the fact sheets.

2 It is possible to arrange transfers only in the currency of the account the transaction is sent from. For example, from the GBP account you can only make transfers in GBP.

Please note that to trade on foreign markets it is necessary to apply online to enable individual markets in your personal area of the Fineco website: Home page » Account Management » Managing Services » Trading and investments » Multicurrency

Futures are derivative financial instruments whose value is directly linked to that of the underlying asset and therefore follows its trend. Derivative financial instruments are characterised by a leverage effect: this means that a relatively small movement in the market prices of the underlying asset will have a proportionately higher impact on the margin which, in the event of an unfavourable movement with respect to the customer's position (underlying price increase for short positions, decrease for long positions) may be entirely lost.

Derivative transactions therefore involve a high degree of risk, and if the market shifts strongly negative the loss can also exceed the capital initially invested (margin). Before trading derivative financial instruments please carefully read the key information documents (KIDs) available on the website finecobank.co.uk

Transactions in derivative financial instruments and margin lending are reserved for Fineco customers who are authorised to operate through the completion of special questionnaires and the signing of the required contractual documentation. All products and services offered are dedicated to Fineco account holders.
