The margin for CFD is calculated as the margin ratio at the opening price of the number of contracts, not the leverage ratio based on your real account.

If trading goods in the same direction, the upfront payment ratio needs to be higher than 100%, and if CFDS are used for lock-in transactions, only 50% margin is required.

The above spread conditions apply to all types of HFM accounts

Please note that the platform will not automatically extend the futures contract after it expires.

Since the trading platform cannot trade negative priced financial commodities, when the price of any energy commodity (OIL, OIL Mn, BRENT, GSOIL and NGAS) falls to zero, the company will be forced to liquidate the position at the last market price.

Many supply and demand factors also affect energy prices, the most influential being global economic growth. When the economy is booming, energy demand increases; When the economy is depressed, energy consumption decreases.

In addition to economic changes, catastrophic weather conditions can have a dramatic impact on energy, causing disruptions in the supply of crude oil, natural gas or oil. Therefore, such conditions can increase or decrease the demand for customer service associated with these energies. In addition, in some of the world's largest gas fields, global energy prices are largely affected by political instability.

Oil has a global, 24-hour market, Its price is constantly changing. The oil market is an ideal tool for day traders looking for quick moves and choosing CF Ds as the simplest method of trading oil prices.
