|CFDs and Spread Betting are leveraged trading products and carry a high degree of risk to your capital. Leverage magnifies movements in the underlying asset (equity, commodities, FX etc). This means that whilst profits are magnified so are losses. The investor may not receive back the amount of their original investment and may be liable for a greater sum than this. Changes in exchange rates may also cause your investment to go up or down in value. Tax laws may change.|
