Types of CFDs

Orders placed in the ASX CFD market are matched on a strict time-price priority. This means orders that are matched (executed) will be executed at the price level of the order placed first.

There are a range of possible trading strategies using ASX-listed CFDs that can assist in the achievement of particular investment objectives. These strategies include those relevant to a directional trader with a view on the market, a day trader or a trader keen to hedge a position in an underlying, for example. The strategies identified below also cover a range of possible ASX-listed CFD asset classes.

ASX equity CFDs

ASX equity CFDs give you access to trade a CFD over Australia’s most actively traded shares.  The contract value of one (1) ASX equity CFD equals the price quoted in cents.  For example, if the ASX Telstra CFD is trading at 490, then the value of one ASX Telstra CFD is AUD4.90. For as little as the equivalent of 5% initial margin, you can gain 20 times leveraged exposure to the most actively traded shares listed on ASX.

The current suite of ASX Equity CFDs includes those listed over the most actively traded Australian shares.

ASX index CFDs

ASX index CFDs give you access to trade some of the world's leading equity indices. The contract value of one (1) ASX index CFD equals the price quoted in the currency of the index.  For example, if the ASX DIJA CFD is trading at 13,805.56, then the value of one ASX DIJA CFD is USD13,805.56. For as little as the equivalent of 5% initial margin you can gain 20 times leveraged exposure to these leading equity indices.
