Derivatives trading is available to clients following the assessment of their knowledge of derivative instruments and the subscription of the Derivative Trading Contract.
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. 65.11% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider.
