When trading CFD's, you can trade Long* when you think that the value of the product will go up, or Short* when you think it will go down. 


  • If you think the value of a product will go up, you choose the arrow "up". ↑

> The value of your trade will increase if the value of your product goes up. 

  • If you think the value of a product will go down, you choose the arrow "down". ↓

> The value of  your trade will increase if the value of the product goes down. 


This means you can also earn money when products are decreasing in value.


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. 
  • The 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.

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