Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

ETF’s, also known as exchange traded funds, are a group of different securities such as stocks or bonds and at times, a mixture of different asset classes. They trade just like regular stocks, they have very low expenses associated and commissions are relatively similar to that of stocks in general, making them a very appealing product for investors and traders looking to diversify their holdings

One thing to note is that ETF’s can be bought and sold with ease, just like regular stocks.

Why ETFs
ETFs offer an affordable way to build a diversified portfolio. They are simple to trade since the transactions take place, much like stocks, on regulated exchanges. ETFs can be traded on margin, have no short-selling restrictions, and provide plenty of intraday trading opportunities.

Exchange traded funds have many features that make them ideal instruments for beginners & professional traders and investors. Some ETF trading strategies include dollar-cost averaging, asset allocation, swing trading, sector rotation, short selling, seasonal trends, and hedging.

All you need to know about CFI ETFs Specification:


The margin on CFDs on ETF’s is around 10% for most products. This allows you to control a larger position with a smaller amount of money and is useful as some ETFs can be quite expensive on an individual basis. CFI’s Standard Terms of Business states that margins may be changed at any time without prior notice.Spreads
Spreads on ETF CFDs are variable but highly competitive and are built around a strong liquidity model. Our charges are usually incorporated in the spread for most instruments that we offer.


Swaps, also known as rollovers, are interest rate amounts charged or earned for holding a buy or sell position overnight. The calculation takes into consideration the interest rate differential between two financial instruments.

Swaps are also applicable on CFDs on ETFs and vary for several reasons, including overnight interest rates. Swap free accounts are also available.
