Whether you're brand new to trading or an experienced trader, the Axi Trading Platform will help you trade what you want, when you want. Download the app to discover a world of opportunities and find new ways to trade your edge!
Our first launch is a demo mode trading experience where you can trade with virtual money to enable you to try trading without any risks and build confidence ready for when you want to trade with real money.
We will be launching 'real money' trading before the end of this calendar year and you can register your interest, so that when we launch you will be the first to know.
The Axi mobile trading app will allow you to trade across a variety of markets, including:
The term 'CFD' stands for Contract for Difference. It is effectively a “contract” between a buyer and seller (i.e. the trader and the broker), agreeing to pay the “difference” between the value of an asset at the time the trade was entered into and the value when the trade ends.
CFDs are most commonly used as a way of trading assets like share CFDs, gold, oil or other commodities without having to physically purchase that asset.
Instead, you simply trade on that asset’s real-time price movements. For example, if you were trading gold as a CFD you would not be buying any real bars of gold. Instead, you would just be trading on the price movements of the gold market. And because you are only trading on the price movements, CFD trading allows you to profit on upward or downward price movements, depending on which way you speculate.
This is different from investing in physical gold where you would only make a profit by selling the gold for more than you bought it for.
Leverage allows you to open a trade using a small portion of your actual balance and borrowing the rest.
Let´s assume you wish to open a position worth $100,000. Without any leverage on your account (1:1), you would have to put up the full value of your position in funds to open it ($100,000).
However, using an example of 100:1 leverage on your account, you would only need $1,000 in funds to open and maintain that position.
Leverage is often called a "double-edged" sword as using it magnifies both potential profits and potential losses a trader could occur. The higher the leverage, the higher the potential profit/loss and risk.
