At City Index we provide a range of products, tools and resources to help you manage your risk and empower your decision-making.
Experienced traders know that understanding risk and finding effective ways to manage it are fundamental parts of a successful trading strategy. By using risk management tools effectively, you could limit potential losses without capping your profit potential. When trading CFDs, there are two major risk factors to consider:
CFDs are a leveraged product, so you only need to deposit a small percentage of the overall trade value. This means that losses, as well as wins, are magnified and you could lose more than you deposit if the market moves against you.
Markets can move quickly and unexpectedly, reacting to a range of different factors, including announcements, political decisions, or even natural disasters. While volatility can provide trading opportunities, it can also result in sudden or unexpected losses.
