What are CFDs?
Contracts for Difference (CFDs) are derivative products that enable you to trade on the price movement of underlying financial assets. A CFD is an agreement to exchange the difference in the value of an asset from the time the contract is opened until the time it's closed.
CFDs enable you to take advantage of opportunities across a vast range of financial markets, whether they’re moving up or down.
CFDs are a leveraged product, which means that you just need to deposit a small percentage of the trade's full value to open a position.

Before trading CFDs, or other derivatives instruments please read carefully the Key Information Documents (KIDs) available on the website finecobank.co.uk
A CFD is a financial derivative, that you can buy or sell with FinecoBank as your direct counterparty. Its value is directly related to that of an underlying asset (securities, indices, currencies, futures on bonds, futures on volatility indicators and futures on commodities) and consequently follows the price movement of the underlying asset. In particular, when CFDs trading your profit/loss is given by the difference in value between the opening price and the subsequent closing price of the contract. The opening price and the closing price are determined by the Bank applying, if appropriate, a mark-up or a spread on the underlying price to the extent indicated by the economic conditions at the time. CFDs are characterised by a strong leverage effect. This means that a relatively small price movement in the underlying market will have a proportionally higher impact on the value of your margined position and an unfavourable price movement may result in losses exceeding your initial margin deposit (increasing underlying price for short positions, decreasing for long positions). CFD Positions open for more than one business day (overnight) are subject to a multi-day position fee.
The spreads applied to CFDs may be changed at any time within the contractually agreed limits.
CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 70.82% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.
Before trading CFDs, please read carefully the Key Information Documents (KIDs) available on the website finecobank.com/uk

Multi-currency is a multi-currency service ancillary to the euro bank account. It allows debiting and/or crediting transactions in the service currencies and is necessary for some online trading services involving financial products in currencies other than the euro.
A currency exchange transaction is subject to foreign exchange risk, i.e., the possibility that the purchased currency may depreciate against the reference currency.
1 Activation of the service is free, however a spread is applied to the exchange rate (Currency Exchange) to the extent indicated in the fact sheets.
2 It is possible to arrange transfers only in the currency of the account the transaction is sent from. For example, from the GBP account you can only make transfers in GBP.
Please note that to trade on foreign markets it is necessary to apply online to enable individual markets in your personal area of the Fineco website: Home page > Account Management > Managing Services > Trading and investments > Multicurrency.
Futures are derivative financial instruments whose value is directly linked to that of the underlying asset and therefore follows its trend. Derivative financial instruments are characterised by a leverage effect: this means that a relatively small movement in the market prices of the underlying asset will have a proportionately higher impact on the margin which, in the event of an unfavourable movement with respect to the customer's position (underlying price increase for short positions, decrease for long positions) may be entirely lost.
Derivative transactions therefore involve a high degree of risk, and if the market shifts strongly negative the loss can also exceed the capital initially invested (margin). Before trading derivative financial instruments please carefully read the key information documents (KIDs) available on the website finecobank.com.
Transactions in derivative financial instruments and margin lending are reserved for Fineco customers who are authorised to operate through the completion of special questionnaires and the signing of the required contractual documentation. All products and services offered are dedicated to Fineco account holders.
