Saxo Capital Markets now offers reduced collateral requirements on the Large Cap single-stock CFDs and all index-tracking CFDs.

Available on the first EUR 50,000 of trading accounts, clients can double their leverage when trading Category 1 and 2 CFDs, including index trackers.

This lowers the margin requirement for the applicable CFDs in Category 1 and 2 by half, meaning greater exposure on key single-stock CFDs and all index-tracking CFDs.

Key Information:

  • Reduced margin requirements on over 750 single-stock CFDs
  • Available on all Saxo Capital Markets Index-tracking CFDs
  • More exposure in rising or falling markets
  • Available on the first EUR 50,000 of Saxo Capital Markets trading accounts
  • Efficiently hedge a Stock portfolio from downside risk.

Detaied Explanation

Currently, Saxo Capital Markets offers 25:1 leverage on Index-tracking CFDs, meaning if an investor buys, for instance, 50 DAX® Index-tracking CFDs at 6,300, then their collateral requirement will be approximately EUR 12,600 or 4%.

But, by taking advantage of reduced collateral requirements, an investor can buy 50 DAX® Index-tracking CFDs at 6,300, and their collateral requirement would be approximately EUR 6,300 or 2%.

NOTE THAT WITH REDUCED CFD MARGIN REQUIREMENTS, CLIENTS HAVE AN INCREASED EXPOSURE TO RISK.

More On Margin Rates

When trading Category 1 and 2 CFDs with Saxo Capital Markets, margin requirements are halved on the first EUR 50,000 (or equivalent) collateral. This includes index-tracking CFDs. Tier 1 CFDs will therefore require a margin of 2% and Tier 2 CFDs will require a margin of 4% on the first EUR 50,000 of collateral. Normal margin rates will apply to all investment collateral over EUR 50,000 (or equivalent) and to CFDs rated as category 3 or higher. For a full list of applicable CFDs, refer to Category 1 and 2 CFDs on the CFD Trading Conditions page in the trading platform or on the website.​
