CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.
64% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with IBKR (UK).
You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.
Equity CFDs follow the value of the underlying stock and thus offer the possibility to participate in the movement of a stock without having to physically own it.
