Fills cannot be guaranteed in extreme markets. Contracts for Difference CFDs. Overnight financing rates start at only 1. We challenge you to find a better offering. For more information, see our CFDs Commissions page. View the CFD ticker on one line and the underlying share ticker on the next.

Margin Efficiency - CFD margin requirements are generally more favorable than stock margin requirements, and under no circumstances will they be worse. This is true for both Reg T and Portfolio Margin accounts. Please note the risks associated with trading CFDs as indicated below.
With other brokers, you run the risk of not getting the best possible price. Our clients have the ability to add quotes to the exchange book in the same way they would trading stocks. As a result a non-marketable CFD order will create a matching non-marketable order for the underlying share on the exchange. Low Commissions and Financing Rates - Depending on the index, commission rates are only 0.
We don't widen the spread of the related future like some other brokers. What you see is what you get. Direct Access to Interbank Quotes - No hidden price spreading, no markup, no kickbacks. Just the combination of real time prices from 14 of the world's largest FX dealing banks plus a transparent, low commission that avoids the conflict of interest of FX platforms which deal for their own account.
ECN-Like Market Structure - Our order book allows you to set orders away from or between the markets, and trade with other IB clients as well as with the liquidity-providing banks. Automatic Overnight Position Rolls - For positions held overnight IB applies a straightforward interest credit or charge based on the difference in the benchmark rates for the two currencies and a low IB spread.

German resident retail clients are however exempt from additional payment obligations for regulatory reasons. Singapore residents can trade CFDs except those based on underlyings traded in Singapore.
Eligible customers must apply for CFD trading permissions in Account Management, and ensure that they have a market data subscription for the listing exchange of the underlying share they wish to trade as a CFD.More...
