For example, we offer over 70 currency pairs, gold and silver, oil and natural gas.

Exceptionally low spread pricing is combined with rapid inter-bank implementation. To be sure, we have expanded our product offering - however our focus remains on providing Forex traders around the globe with the lowest costs possible.

With competitive spreads, your overall trading costs are far lower when you partner with IFX Brokers™.

Indices are the most popular form of CFD’s. With a large range of Indices to choose from, trading on indices enables traders to speculate on whether an index will rise or fall, without buying shares in the underlying assets.

In this sense, one can trade an index just as one would trade a stock, currency or commodity.

In addition to energy and metal contracts, we offer a range of soft commodity products to trade, including corn, soybeans, sugar, coffee, and wheat as CFD’s.

Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? And it is, provided you’re familiar with the fundamentals of soft commodity trading. World growth is the long-term driver of commodity prices since inevitably people will always require food, clothing, transport and electronic devices, amongst many other desires.

A CFD(contract for difference) is an offshoot of a financial asset through which it derives its value. In most instances, the underlying asset is stock, although there are also CFDs related to indices and other commodities. A CFD enables you to trade on the rise and fall of prices without owning the underlying asset.

The traditional definition of a CFD states that it is a contract between two parties, comprising a buyer and a seller. If there is a positive balance between the asset’s opening price and its price at the contract’s conclusion, the seller pays the buyer. In the reverse situation, the buyer pays the seller. CFD trading is like stock trading, however you do not own the stock. You use the price fluctuations of the stock to speculate. If you wish to upscale your skills in financial markets so you can try new spheres of interest, it is essential to study CFD trading.

Let’s Get Trading

Spreads

The Meta Trader 4 platform delivers variable spreads. It’s True ECN connectivity means we are able to offer market leading spreads. More than 50 banks and dark pool liquidity sources price into our ECN at any given time. This ensures that our spreads remain tight and liquidity deep - 24 hours a day, five days a week.

Swaps

A forex swap rate, or rollover, concerns overnight interest that is added or deducted when a position is held open overnight. It may be earned or paid. Swap/rollover rates are determined by the existing overnight interest rate differential between the two paired currencies, and whether the selected position is buy ‘long’ or sell ‘short’.
