CFD Margins

CFDs are traded on margin. This means that you are able to leverage your investment by opening positions of larger size than the funds you have to place as margin collateral. The margin is the amount reserved on your trading account to cover any potential losses from an open CFD position. It is possible that a loss may exceed the required margin. Margin requirements vary from instrument to instrument and can be changed at any time to reflect market conditions. For larger re-ratings or changing of margin requirements for very popular instruments clients will be notified in advance where possible. 

Intraday margin on selected Index Tracker CFDs is available to clients on request. The intraday margin requirement is reduced compared to the normal margin requirement and is applied during intraday trading hours. For more details on intraday margin and intraday trading hours, see the section below.  Margin requirements by CFD type and instrument are always listed under the CFD Trading Conditions on the trading platforms but can also be seen below.

Please note that Saxo Bank reserves the right to increase margin requirements for large position sizes, including client portfolios considered to be of very high risk.

Intraday margin which is available on selected CFD Index Trackers increases flexibility during the trading day. The Intraday margin is phased out in the minutes following expiry of the intraday trading hours applicable to the respective instrument. 

Example of Intraday Margin for Germany 30 (GER30.I)

The intraday trading hours can be found in the trading conditions section in the trading platforms. Please note that the intraday trading hours are subject to change and may be affected by early close of the underlying market due to holidays etc.

Intraday Margin is available upon request. Please contact your Account Manager or Service Center.
