Contracts For Difference (CFDs) allow you to speculate on future price movements of an underlying asset such as equities and commodities. CFDs allow you to trade a contract for the difference in the price of that asset, from the point of opening to when you close out your positions.
CFDs allow you to perform short selling for any duration that you wish. This means that you are not limited to the T+3 contra period for stocks. Instead of the usual Buy Low and Sell High, you can now do the reverse - sell when the price is high and buy it back when the price falls.
2. Trade on Leverage
CFDs also allow you to trade on leverage. The capital outlay to open CFD contracts will be only a percentage of the contract value. For example, the margin requirement for Thailand Equity CFDs starts from as low as 30%. Lower margin requirements will allow traders like you to have a higher buying power.
3. Access to Global Markets
Currently, Phillip CFD offers contracts from 8 countries - Singapore, United States, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Australia, Japan and Thailand. Besides Equity CFDs. we also offer a wide range of World Indices CFDs.
