Share CFDs, or Share CFD trading, creates a unique opportunity to speculate on the share price movements of publicly listed companies traded on exchanges such as ASX, NYSE and Nasdaq, without the need to own the underlying stock. You can even take advantage of market conditions when shares are trending in bearish territory.
*Share CFDs are not available on demo accounts.

When you directly trade a share, you are buying and selling a small ownership of a publicly-listed company at prices determined by the market. Share CFDs differ in that they allow you to speculate on the share’s price without taking actual ownership of the underlying asset. This allows you to trade both long and short, whereas only long trading is available with standard share trading.
Additionally, because CFDs are leveraged products, you will only need to deposit a small portion of the full value of the trade in order to open a position. While this will increase any profits, it also means losses can exceed deposits. Standard share trading requires you to pay the full cost of your position upfront, so you cannot lose more than your investment.
Share CFDs are traded at the real market price. We take a small commission when you open the position, and then again when you close it. A breakdown of the costs associated with Share CFD trading with GO Markets is provided in the table below:
