What are stock CFDs?

CFD stands for Contracts for Difference, which are derivative financial instruments that allow you to invest in shares without owning them, speculating on price variations and capitalising on price movements in any direction.

Advantages of stock CFD trading

Unlike investing in stocks, when you trade Share CFDs, you are not buying or trading the underlying asset. What you are buying is a contract between yourself and the CFD provider. This situation offers quite a few benefits:

No fixed commission and no spread applied by Fineco on FTSE100, US and EU share CFDs to make it more affordable to invest in that stock markets 1.

You only need a small amount of capital: thanks to the leverage effect you can get full market exposure using only a percentage of the value of the position.

With the technical analysis, you can study the dynamics of the share prices through charts in order to identify the opportunities and develop customised strategies in a simple and intuitive way.

You can invest in many of the world's most prestigious listed companies directly by buying shares and trading long or short on their performance anytime anywhere.

Derivatives trading is available to clients following the assessment of their knowledge and experience of derivative instruments and the subscription of the Derivative Trading Contract.
Before trading CFDs, or other derivatives instruments please read carefully the Key Information Documents (KIDs) available on the website

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.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 65.18% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs 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.

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

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.
