* Applies to  the first EUR 50,000 in combined CFD collateral and for collateral in excess of Eur 50,000 the margin requirement will double the requirement indicated in the above table.
The above CFDs track the price of the underlying Futures Contract and trade with the Futures market spread with a small mark-up. There are no other fees or commissions when trading these CFDs. Compared to the underlying Futures Contracts, the CFDs carry a significantly lower margin requirement - from 0.5% and smaller minimum trade sizes, providing full flexibility when managing your portfolio.
