When setting a Trade, you can predict whether you think the value of the product in which you invest will go up or down. If you think the value of a product will go up, you choose the arrow "up". This way the value of your investment increases when the value of your product goes up. If you think the value of a product will go down, you choose the arrow "down" and your investment will increase when the value of the product goes down. This means you can also earn money when products are decreasing in value, just make sure you select the correct arrow, up or down.  


An example: 

If you invest £100 in a certain stock and you think that this stock will go down, but it goes up by 5%, you will lose £5 on your investment. However, if it actually goes down by 5%, you will gain the additional £5. Same goes for the other way around: If you invest £100 in a certain stock and you think that this stock will go up, but it goes down by 5%, you will lose £5 on your investment. However, if it actually goes up by 5%, you will gain the additional £5.

* Going UP is the equivalent of the stock market term ‘Long-trading’ and going DOWN the equivalent of ‘Short-trading’. These two terms refer to whether you've invested your money on a stock's price rising (Long) or falling (Short). When trading with CFDs, you can achieve gains in both rising and falling markets.
