CFD trade’s characteristics and attractions


1. Net settlement trade

Trades are not settled by delivery. What was bought must be sold and vice versa. And only the net difference in value is paid and received.

2. Margin trade

Margin trade CFD trades are leveraged like FX and  you can make investments many times the margin. You can utilize leverage and make large trades with small capital.

3. OTC transaction

CFD trades are OTC trades where the transactions are made one on one between the seller and the buyer.
Customers can trade by the prices we offer by signing a contract with us.

※ The prices we offer are based on the underlying asset prices and the prices        offered by the covering financial institutions.
There are cases where the prices deviate from the underlying asset prices due to the fall in liquidity.


1. Cash efficiency is high due to leverage effect

Leverage means moving large capital with small capital.
Therefore there is a chance to make large profit with little capital.
On the other hand, you must be careful as you may incur large loss if the market moves against you.


2. You can trade from either buy or sell side.

CFD trades can be started from sell side or buy side like FX trades.
In the case of sell trade, the more price falls, the more profit you make.
Therefore, if you think the commodity you are trading is going to fall in prices, you start the trade on the sell side.
There are opportunities make profits not only in the rising markets of stock indices and commodities, but also in the falling markets.

3. You can receive daily interest for some commodities

For spot CFD trades such as gold and silver, payment and receipt of daily interest occur based on the official interest rate of each country.
For example, you can receive daily interest if you hold a short position in a spot gold trade.
(※Attention. You may pay daily interest depending on the interest rate conditions in US)
On the contrary, you will have to pay daily interest if you hold a long position.
And spot CFD trades have no contract month and trades are rolled over just like FX trades.

On the other hand, payment and receipt of daily interest do not occur for monthly contract CFD trades where underlying assets are listed on the overseas securities exchange or futures listed on the overseas commodities exchange.

4. You can trade in smaller unit than exchange trades

Normally the trading unit in exchange trades are too large for ordinary individual investors and investors with little experience.
In CFD trades, you can trade smaller units than exchange trades.
Therefore individual investors can trade with less risk until they acquire experience.
At the same time, it is possible to trade in accordance with financial conditions, investment experience and trading objective.
