Contract for Difference – CFD Trading

Get direct electronic access to OTC products which let you trade the difference between current and future pricing of a share, index and a pair of currency.

Share CFDs

We currently offering approximately 7100 Share CFDs covering the principal markets in the US, Europe and Asia. The constituents of the major indexes are currently available as Share CFDs. 

Transparent, Low Commissions and Financing Rates

The starting commission rate is only 0.1% on all share CFDs, with lower rates available for active traders. Overnight financing charges start at only benchmark +/-1.5%, also with lower spreads available for larger balances.

Trade CFDs Alongside the Underlying Shares

Our Global account lets you view and trade multiple asset types from the same screen. View the CFD ticker on one line and the underlying share ticker on the next.

Leveraged Trading

Trading CFDs allows our clients to have exposure on an exchange traded security with significantly less equity than taking the equivalent exposure to the underlying security.

Margin Efficiency

Compared to stock margin requirements, CFD margin requirements are generally more favourable. Non-Australian retail clients are subject to a minimum regulatory initial margin of 20%.

Efficient CFD Reference Pricing

Our CFD price reflects the exchange-quoted price for the underlying share. At Aurora we use its efficient Smart Routing technology to determine your CFD reference price. This technology avoids you from running the risk of not getting the best possible price. We will match all CFD orders immediately with a hedge-order. As a result, a non-marketable CFD order will create a matching non-marketable order for the underlying share on the exchange.

Index and Metals CFDs 

Flexible Exposure to Global Markets

We offer Index CFDs for all major equity market indices, and for precious metals (London Gold and Silver). Equity indices can be traded in lots as small as 1X the index level. Our Index CFDs do not expire, which means you saving rollover related costs and risks.

Low Commissions and Financing Rates

Depending on the index, commission rates are only 0.003% – 0.02%. Overnight financing rates are just benchmark +/-1.5%.

Among other important benefits our Index CFDs present an opportunity to gain broad market exposure more easily than with many other instruments.

Transparent Quotes and No requoting

Our commission is transparent and there are no hidden fees. There are no requotes, so what you see is what you get. We don’t widen the spread of the related future or spot underlying.

Our Index CFD quotes accurately represent the spreads and price movements of the related future or spot price. We hedge all index CFD trades, and fills cannot be guaranteed in extreme markets.

Margin Efficiency

Our Index CFDs are margined at the same low rates as the related future, adjusted for contract size. Retail clients from outside of Australian are subject to minimum regulatory margins of 5% or 10% depending on the index or metal.

Caution: CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.  We strongly recommend you consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.
