Access to global markets

A Contract for Difference, or CFD, is an agreement between a trader and their CFD provider to exchange the difference between the opening and closing price of a contract. As a leveraged product, CFD allows you to maximise market exposure for a small fraction of the investment you would typically need to trade the underlying assets, such as equities index or futures, directly. You can use CFDs to trade and speculate on the price movements regardless whether prices are rising or dropping. CFDs give you a lot of trading flexibility, allowing you to take advantage of the financial markets regardless of the price direction.

Why trade CFD?

  • Profit when markets rise or fall
  • Leverage your investment potential and reduce your capital outlay
  • Access to a wider range of financial markets
  • Mitigate your risk by hedging with CFDs

Leverage Levels

There are different leverages to cater to our clients’ trading preference, with leverage up to 1:500.

Please refer to the available leverages based on the account types.

Margin Requirement

Margin Requirement is an initial deposit required to maintain open positions. A portion of your trading account amount will be set aside as a margin deposit and this will be dependent on your leverage setting.

Spot Oil

Example 1:
Margin requirement for one standard contract position in UKOIL/USD at 48.033 with a leverage of 1:100 is calculated as follows:
Margin= (Lot Size*Contract Size*Market Price)/Leverage
Margin = (1 * 1000 * $48.033) / (100) = $480.33

Example 2:
Margin requirement for one standard contract position in USOIL/USD at 45.577 with a leverage of 1:100 is calculated as follows:
Margin= (Lot Size*Contract Size*Market Price)/Leverage
Margin = (1 * 1000 * $45.577) / (100) = $455.77

Cash Indices

Example 1:
Margin requirement for one standard contract position in WS30 at 21,534.73 is calculated as follows:
Margin = Lot Size*Contract Size*Market Price*Margin Requirement
Margin = (1 * 10 * $21,534) *0.01 = USD$2,153.40

Example 2:
Margin requirement for one standard contract position in ASX at 5673.23 is calculated as follows:
Margin = Lot Size*Contract Size*Market Price*Margin Requirement
Margin = (1 * 10 * $5673.23*0.01) = AUD$567.32AUD

Assuming your MT4 account is denominated in USD, we will need to convert the margin requirement into USD:
Assuming the rate for AUD/USD is 0.79623
Margin = $567.323*0.79623 = USD$451.71

Example 3:
Margin requirement for one standard contract position in JPY225 at 19,882.60 is calculated as follows:
Margin = Lot Size*Contract Size*Market Price*Margin Requirement
Margin = (1*1,000*$19,882.60) *0.01 = JPY$198,826

Assuming your MT4 account is denominated in USD, we will need to convert the margin requirement into USD:
Assuming the rate for USD/JPY is 109.725
Margin = $198,826 / 109.725 = USD$1,812.04

Example 4:
Margin requirement for one standard contract position in HK50 at 26848.80 is calculated as follows:
Margin = Lot Size*Contract Size*Market Price*Margin Requirement
Margin = (1*100 *$26,848.80) *0.01 = HKD$26,848.80

Assuming your MT4 account is denominated in USD, we will need to convert the margin requirement into USD:
Assuming the rate for USD/HKD is 7.80499
Margin = $26,848.80 / 7.80499 = USD$3,439.95

Example 5:
Margin requirement for one standard contract position in DAX30 at 12152.31 is calculated as follows:
Margin = Lot Size*Contract Size*Market Price*Margin Requirement
Margin = (1 * 10 * $12152.31) *0.01 = EUR$1215.23

Assuming your MT4 account is denominated in USD, we will need to convert the margin requirement into USD:
Assuming the rate for EUR/USD is 1.16525
Margin = $1215.23*1.16525 = USD$1416.04

Margin Call

Margin Call is a measure set by the brokerage to alert traders before their account funds fall below the Margin Requirement. This will prevent positions from liquidation due to insufficient Margin Requirement. At Anzo Capital, Margin Call is set at 80%, therefore, if your Equity (Balance – Open Positions Profit/Loss) falls below 80% of the margin required to maintain your positions, a notification within MT4 will be sent to alert you to make additional deposit to maintain your open positions.

Stop Out Level

If you are unable to maintain sufficient funds in your account after hitting the Margin Call level, and your account funds depreciates to the Stop Out level, your positions will be closed automatically to prevent further losses into the negative territory. At Anzo Capital, Stop Out level is set at 50%.

Swaps

It is a rollover interest (that is earned or paid) when traders hold their positions overnight. The interest for positions held over the weekend will occur on Wednesday for Spot Oil and Friday for Cash Indices. Therefore, the interest applied will be for three days of rollover interest.
