The market price for shares in company XYZ on the NYS is currently trading at $12.00/12.02. You think that the company’s shares are undervalued and will increase so you decide to buy 5000 CFDs at $12.02 each (being the price at which Malfex is willing to enter into the CFD).
Two weeks later, shares in company XYZ have increased and are now selling at $12.52. You decide to realise your gain by Closing Out your CFD position.
Malfex quotes you a price of $12.52/CFD (being the price at which Malfex is willing to sell you CFDs to Close Out your 5000 CFDs). You trade at that price. The amount of profit you have made, before adjustments and tax, on the Transaction is $2500.00 (difference between 12.02 and 12.52) x 5000 = $2500). With a Margin requirement of 10% of the Contract Value, the Margin requirement for the XYZ position is $6010.00 ($60,100 x10%).
Company XYC paid a dividend of 10 cents per share while your position was open. Therefore you are entitled to a positive dividend adjustment of $500 (5000 x 10 cents) (this amount is posted to your Trading Account). Share CFDs are subject to a commission charge (we also call it a Transaction Fee) on the opening and closing Transactions (based on the Closing Value).
The transaction fee on this trade will be of a minimum of $15 USD or 2cents a share (depending on the greater value. In this case 5000 units* 2cents = $100 USD will be the commission charged for opening the trade as this is greater than $15 USD.
Since 2007 you hold a long Share CFD position overnight, costs are charged by way of the Finance Charge. This is calculated on your positions by applying the applicable Finance Charge rate to the daily Closing Value of the position. The formula to calculate financing is: (Quantity x Closing Price) x ((Malfex Base Rate +/- Client Mark up) / number of days for Terms Currency)
In this example, for instance if the applicable rate is 4.5% p.a. and the Closing Price of the CFD on a particular day is $12.20, then the overnight Finance Charge is then calculated as follows: The base rate is 2.5%;
Client Mark up is 2.0%(5000 x $12.20 x 4.50%) / 365
The Finance Charge on this particular day would therefore be $7.52.
Dividend: $500 (Credit)
Transaction fee: $100 USD (Debit) Fee applies on opening and closing
Finance Charge: Approx. $105.28 (Debit). The overnight Finance Charge is calculated daily and based on Closing value for the 14 days the position is held
Net Profit: $2,695.00

Share CFD Count Per Exchange
Suppose you want to trade CFDs, where the underlying asset is AAPL.NAS and your account is in USD. If AAPL.NAS is trading at:
If you decide to trade and BUY 100 Units of AAPL.NAS, because you think that the price of AAPL.NAS stock is going to rise in the future. The margin on AAPL.NAS is 5% this means that you are required to put up 5% of the position value in order to take up your desired position in AAPL.NAS.
Hence you would need at least the following amount in your account to take up the position:
5% x (100 x 310) = $1,550 USD.
This in turn will give your position a value of $31,000 USD.
In the next hour, the price of AAPL.NAS has moved to:
You now have a profitable trade. You could close your position by selling at the current price of $315. As such your profit would be:
100 x (315-310) = $500 USD
In this case the price has moved in your favour. However, if the price had declined instead moving against your prediction, you could have made a loss. This continuous evaluation of price movements and resultant profit/loss happens daily. Accordingly, it leads to a net return (positive/negative) on your initial margin. In the loss scenario where your Free equity, (account balance+ Profit/Loss) falls below the margin requirements, the broker will issue a margin call. If you fail to deposit the money, and the market moves further against you, when your free equity reach the 50% of your initial margin the contract will be closed at the current market price, known as “stop out.”
In the event AAPL.NAS pays out a dividend of $0.82 per share. Your account will receive a cash adjustment if you are holding a Long position.
Using the scenario above, given that you hold 100 units of AAPL.NAS on the Dividend date. You will receive the following cash adjustment credit to your trading account.
100 * 0.82 = $82 USD.
However, if you take the opposite position and are SHORT on AAPL.NAS, you will be required to pay:
This amount will be a cash adjustment debit from your trading account.
The principal difference between CFD trading and share trading is that you do not own the underlying asset i.e the physical share. As stated, CFD stands for “contract for difference” and with a CFD you never actually take ownership of the asset or instrument you are trading but you can still take benefit if the stock market moves in your favour or make a loss if the market moves in the other direction.
CFDs are also a leveraged product and the margin requirements mean that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the trade in order to open a CFD position whereas with share trading shares are usually purchased for the full amount owed.
Leverage also comes with suspential risk, so it is important to understand the risks that comes with leverage before trading.
