Equity CFDs are a CFD which mirrors the price movement of the underlying share or stock on a listed stock exchange. Equity CFDs are amongst the most popular of the CFD contracts offered by FP Markets. For most traders, Equity CFDs are the first step in the progression from share trading into CFD trading.
How Equity CFDs work
The concept of equity CFDs is relatively simple. An Equity CFD trader buys or sells a CFD over any equity listed on a stock exchange. The loss (or profit) of the trade is the difference between the total notional value of the position at the time of opening the CFD contract compared to the total notional value of the position at the time of opening the CFD contract.View CFD Trading Examples

FP Markets offers its clients Direct Market Access (DMA) equity CFDs. This means FP Markets’ clients have access to prices which directly mirror prices from the underlying asset traded on the exchange (where there is an underlying exchange upon which an asset is traded).
