Short selling CFD’s can pose a high risk, especially when using leverage, which is standard with the majority of all short selling brokers.
The entire account balance is at stake, not just the deposit for a single position, when you trade with leverage.
You can deposit more into your account and only trade for a lower value and thus have the same effect as when you trade without leverage. It should be noted that with some short selling CFD brokers, you can lose more than your invested capital.
ShortSelling.com recommends that you never invest more than you can afford to lose and preferably set a predetermined amount for how much you should use for online trading.
Read the terms of the individual trading platforms before using them. We at ShortSelling.com can't give you advice on how or when to invest, or what to invest in. Our website on is completely free of charge.
