Low Margin Requirements: At Markets.com you are able to trade CFDs with margins between 1% - 2% (which means leverage of up to 100:1). This enables you to enter bigger positions than you would be able to if you bought the actual underlying asset.
High Liquidity: All Markets.com CFDs offer competitive spreads with bid/ask quotes that are filled on the spot – without delay.
Lot Size: CFD trading enables you to trade in small and odd size lots. Normally, this is not possible when dealing with the underlying asset itself.
No Commission: Markets.com offers commission-free CFD trading. Furthermore, Markets.com offers free intra-day trading – positions that are opened and closed on the same day incur no costs whatsoever.
Ability to trade "Long" or "Short": With CFD Trading, you can profit no matter which way the market moves. You can use CFD to go “short” (when you believe markets will fall) as easily as to go "long" (when you expect prices to be on the rise).
