Change the way you trade CFDs with Saxo

NEW! Fixed spreads on Indices

Experience consistently low spreads when trading CFD indices during the main trading hours. For the most popular indices, the Bid/Ask spread will be equal to the minimum target spread in approx. 99% of the quote updates during the opening hours of the underlying cash market.*

NEW! Intraday Margin on Indices

Take advantage of reduced margins on our most popular indices with Intraday Margins. With margins reduced by 50% you have twice the trading capacity when trading indices such as the UK 100, Germany 30 or US 500 during the index’s intraday session.

Use Stock as Collateral

When trading CFDs with Saxo you can use a percentage of your stock, ETF or Bond value as margin collateral an increase your margin exposure.

Smart Order Routing

We execute CFD orders via SORs (Smart Order Routers), which are sophisticated algorithms placing orders across multiple venues in order to achieve the best result. To minimise market impact and improve quality of execution, SORs execute across regulated markets (Exchanges), MTFs and other liquidity venues.

Direct Market Access

Access to Single Stock CFDs with Saxo are transparent and benefit from significant underlying liquidity, given that the hedging is always executed on a pure Direct Market Access (DMA) basis, where all orders are routed to regulated markets and other liquidity venues via smart order routing. Commissions may vary from a non-DMA setup. 

Algorithmic Orders

Algorithmic Orders are especially useful for larger or more advanced stock orders. They use algorithmic equations to independently execute order transactions most efficiently, according to your chosen strategy. They can also break down an order into smaller parts to avoid showing the full size of the order.

Please note that fixed spreads only apply under normal market conditions and up to a certain trade size.See more information on our CFD Index Tracker spreads. See more information on our maximum trade amounts.

An alternative to share dealing

For some traders, CFD trading can offer a more flexible approach to the market than traditional share dealing. 

CFDs are traded on margin, meaning that you only have to put up a percentage of the value/invested amount, compared to the full amount when trading cash stocks.

Remember that this in turn means that any losses you incur are magnified as a result of using leverage. 

Traders often use CFDs and share dealing together in a complementary way, using CFDs to hedge against an existing share portfolios performance.
