InterTrader CFDs

As well as a comprehensive financial spread betting service, the company also lets clients trade CFDs on shares, stock market indices, forex and commodities.

CFD trading offers an alternative to traditional share trading. With CFDs you do not own the underlying market and you don’t put up the full value of the shares that you are buying or selling.

With normal CFD trading the main costs are the commission and the spread (the difference between the sell and buy price). The higher the commission and wider the spread, the more it costs you to trade.

With InterTrader CFDs there are no commissions and they have some of the tightest spreads available. For example, the spread applied to FTSE 100 shares is just 0.05%.

With InterTrader CFDs you can also benefit from:
  • Trading an exact quantity of shares or lot sizes
  • Low minimum margin rates
  • No stamp duty*
  • InterTrader’s TradeBack loyalty program where you can save up to 10% of your costs
