What are CFDs
CFDs or Contracts for Difference are an agreement between two parties to exchange, at the close of the contract, the difference between the opening price and closing price of the contract, multiplied by the number of underlying stocks specified in the contract.
 
For CFDs on listed securities, they are traded in a similar way and can be used as an alternative instrument instead of trading on the underlying. It allows clients to gain exposure to stock price movements, without the need for ownership of the underlying stocks.
 
We also offer CFDs on Index, so you can have the flexibility of trading these instruments on the same CFD platform without the need to log in to another system or to maintain a separate cash balance.
 
You will be able to take long or short positions on CFDs without paying the full contract value of the underlying position. You are only required to place a cash deposit (known as initial margin) as collateral.
CFDs do not have an expiry date and you will be able to hold the position indefinitely as long as you are able to meet your margin and interest requirements.
 
Features & Benefits
1. Flexibility to Short
One of the main appeals of CFD trading is that you can short sell without owning the underlying stock. When you invest in a stock via a CFD on the CGS-CIMB Futures CFD Trading System, you can open a short position on the spot at the real-time tradable price by selling with the aim of profiting from the falling stock price.
 
2. Leverage
CFDs are traded on margin, using leverage to maximise your trading capital. This means for a small outlay you can open larger positions in the market compared to that of traditional stock trading.
 
3. No Expiry Date of Contracts
Gives you the freedom to roll over your open positions on a daily basis until you choose to close the position.
 
4. Transparent Pricing
Our Direct Market Access system gives you the same transparent pricing and liquidity as stock trading.
 
5. Ease of Trading
There is more than one mode of trading CFDs - through broker or online. The online system for CFD trading includes features like good-for-the-day orders, real-time portfolio and daily account management.
 
6. Corporate Action
As an owner of an Equity CFD, you will have your account adjusted to reflect cash dividends credited or debited on the underlying stock and to participate in stock splits, just as you would if you owned the physical stock. The only difference is that with a CFD you are not entitled to any voting rights.
 
What is Direct Market Access?
Direct Market Access (DMA), is the electronic facility that allows for CFD prices and liquidity to be identical to the underlying stock markets. Investors enter into CFDs at the underlying market price. This means that all orders are executed in real time and the investors can be assured of true market prices.

DMA also has the added benefit of offering the ability to participate in the pre-opening and pre-closing phase of the market, which is often the most liquid and volatile period of the trading day. CGS-CIMB Futures adopts the DMA model for CFD as it offers one of the most transparent pricing structures to investors.
 
DMA CFD provider model allows:
  • No additional spreads
  • Straight through processing
  • Potential to be a price taker or maker
  • Participation in pre-opening and pre-closing phase
 
In comparison, the Market Maker (MM) CFD model:
  • May not always have the same prices as the exchange
  • There is potential for additional spreads and potential requotes
  • Market makers are price takers only, generally there is no participation in pre-opening and pre-closing phase

 
Comparison of CFDs against Traditional Stock Trading
CFD is traded on margin, using leverage to maximize your trading capital. This means that you can undertake a larger position for the same amount of capital as compared to traditional stock trading. The effect of leverage means that movements in the underlying market have a magnified effect and can result in greater profit or loss as illustrated below:-
 
Example 1: A Profit-Making Trade
  CFD Trading Traditional Stock Trading
  Buy 1,000 XYZ CFD @ $10 Buy 1,000 XYZ Shares @ $10
Initial Outlay  ($1,000)
Upfront payment of 10% Margin is required
($10,000)
Payment by settlement date is required
Contract Value $10,000 $10,000
Commission @ 0.25% ($25) ($25)
  Sell 1,000 XYZ CFD @ $11 Sell 1,000 XYZ Shares @ $11
Contract Value $11,000 $11,000
Gross Profit/(Loss) $1,000 $1,000
Commission @ 0.25% ($27.50) ($27.50)
Financing Cost * ($5.48) -
Net Profit/(Loss) ($1,000 - $25 - $27.50 - $5.48)
= $942.02
($1,000 - $25 - $27.50)
= $947.50
Return on Initial Outlay $942.02 / $1,000 = 94.20% $947.5 / $10,000 = 9.48%
 

Example 2: A Break-Even Trade

  CFD Trading Traditional Stock Trading
  Buy 1,000 XYZ CFD @ $10 Buy 1,000 XYZ shares @ $10
Initial Outlay  ($1,000)
Upfront payment of 10%  Margin is required
($10,000)
Payment by settlement date is required
Contract Value $10,000 $10,000
Commission @ 0.25% ($25) ($25)
  Sell 1,000 XYZ CFD @ $10 Sell 1,000 XYZ shares @ $10
Contract Value $10,000 $10,000
Gross Profit/(Loss) - -
Commission @ 0.25% ($25) ($25)
Financing Cost * ($5.48) -
Net Profit/(Loss) ($0 - $25 - $25 - S5.48) = ($55.48) ($0 - $25 - $25 ) = ($50)
Return on Initial Outlay ($55.48) / $1,000 = (5.548%)  ($50) / $10,000 = (0.5%)
 
Example 3: A Loss-Making Trade
  CFD Trading Traditional Stock Trading
  Buy 1,000 XYZ CFD @ $10 Buy 1,000 XYZ shares @ $10
Initial Outlay  ($1,000)
Upfront payment of 10% Margin is required
($10,000)
Payment by settlement date is required
Contract Value $10,000 $10,000
Commission @ 0.25% ($25) ($25)
  Sell 1,000 XYZ CFD @ $9 Sell 1,000 XYZ shares @ $9
Contract Value $9,000 $9,000
Commission @ 0.25% ($22.5) ($22.5)
Gross Profit/(Loss) ($1,000) ($1,000)
Financing Cost * ($5.48) -
Net Profit/(Loss) (-$1,000 - $25 - $22.50 - $5.48)
= ($1,052.98)
(-$1,000 - $25 - $22.50)
= ($1,047.50)
Return on Initial Outlay ($1,052.98) / $1,000 = (-105.30%) ($1,047.50) / $10,000 = (-10.48%)


* Note: The above illustrations assume the trade takes place on Friday and the subsequent sale takes place on the following Wednesday. Position is held for 5 days. Financing cost is determined at the CGS-CIMB Futures Base Rate (“CBR”) plus 3.75% for long positions, and minus 3.75% for short positions. This example uses an effective financing rate of 4% per year / 365 days and assumes no change in valuation price on Monday and Tuesday. CBR is subject to change as it relates to the interbank quoted rate.

CFD Investor
 
Q1. Who can invest in CFD?
Currently, CFDs can only be traded by sophisticated investors (i.e. any person who falls within any of the categories of investors set out in Part 1 of Schedule 6 and 7 of the CMSA). 
 
CFD Trading
 
Q1. How are CFD prices quoted?
CGS-CIMB Futures CFD uses Direct Market Access (DMA).
DMA allows our CFD clients to have direct market access to the underlying security market through our CFD platform. CFD clients will be participating in the market at prices identical to that of the underlying security market.
 

Q2. How is the CFD contract value computed?
CFD Contract Value = Quantity of CFD contract X CFD Price


Q3. What is the contract size of CFDs?
As CGS-CIMB Futures uses the Direct Market Access (DMA), contract size depends on the lot size that the underlying securities are traded in.


Q4. What are the trading hours for CFDs in the different markets?
Trading hours for CFDs are the same as the trading hours of the underlying securities and their respective exchanges, e.g. if the underlying security is listed on the Singapore Exchange ("SGX") the trading hours for that CFDs will be the same as the SGX trading hours.
Please refer to "Our Products" section for further details regarding trading hours.


Q5. Are the prices quoted live?
The market feed is delayed. For further details on the data feed costs, please click here and refer to the Data Feed Charges Schedule.


Q6. Are equity CFDs traded on the Stock Exchange?
No. CFD is an over-the-counter product and therefore is not traded on any exchange.


Q7. What are the counters available for CFD trading?
After logging into the CFD Trading Platform (Viewpoint), you may refer to the "Margin Watchlist" widget for tradable counters.


Q8. How long can I hold a CFD position?
There is no expiry on your CFD position. You can hold on to the position as long as you maintain the required margin, which may vary based on the daily mark-to-market pricing. You should note that financing charges are imposed on any open positions.
 
Please click here to view the Commission and Financing Tables.


Q9. Can my CFD orders be partially filled?
Yes. The balance of the order will continue to work in the market until it is either filled or cancelled.
For markets where orders can be placed Good-for-The-Day ("GTD") only, the balance orders will be cancelled at the end of the trading day.


Q10. Can I delete or amend the CFD orders?
Yes. If the order is not done, you can either delete or amend the CFD orders.


Q11. How would I know the status of my CFD orders?
You may view your order status under the "Order Pad" window of the CFD trading platform.
Alternatively, you may refer to the close of business statement sent on the following business day.


Q12. What will happen to my CFD position if the underlying securities are suspended?
If any of the CFD underlying securities ceases to be quoted on a relevant exchange, or are under halt/suspension, CGS-CIMB Futures may at its absolute discretion, elect to terminate the relevant CFD or vary the margin requirement for the CFD depending on the situation.
CGS-CIMB Futures will determine the CFD Contract Value at its sole discretion upon termination.


Q13. Is short-selling allowed?
Yes. Short-selling is allowed as long as the underlying security is available for short-selling. You are able to obtain the shortable list from the “Margin Watchlist”, sort for “Y” under “AllowShort” column.


Q14. What are the underlying securities available for shorting in equity CFDs?
For equity CFDs, the list of underlying securities that can be shorted are maintained online and may vary daily.
You are encouraged to check from the margin table in the CFD online trading system.


Q15. Do I earn interest on my CFD short position?
Yes. Interest is paid based on the Base Rate less mark-up as provided in the commission and funding rates schedule.
However, if the Base Rate is low for certain markets and after factoring in the mark-up rates imposed by CGS-CIMB Futures, you may end up paying interest for short position.
Example: If the Base Rate for SGD CFD is 0.5% p.a. and the mark-up is 3.75% p.a., you would need to pay the financing interest of 3.25% p.a. for the open short position.
Intraday trades do not incur interest. Interest is calculated based on end of day valuation of underlying position.


Q16. What are the types of collateral acceptable and what are the payment modes available?
Only cash is accepted as collateral for CFDs.


Q17. What are the costs and funding charges associated with trading in CFD?
Applicable charges are the CFD trading commission and funding charges for open CFD positions. Click on the link to find out more about the relevant charges.

Please click here to view the Commission, Financing and Market Data Charges
 

Q18. Are CFD clients entitled to dividends? 
A trade in equity CFD is not a trade in the underlying security.
You therefore do not receive cash or other dividends directly from the issuer of the underlying security as you are not the holder of the underlying security.
You will however receive an amount equivalent to the amount of such dividends (after tax) from the CGS-CIMB Futures, to reflect the actual dividends paid on the underlying security.
Your CFD Account will be credited or debited accordingly with such amount. Dividend adjustments are applied if you have an open position in an underlying security on the ex-dividend date.

 
Q19. How will corporate actions affect my CFD positions?
All corporate actions (e.g. rights issues, bonus issues, capital repayments) that are applied to the underlying security will be reflected in the value of your CFD account.
To reflect the actual dividends paid on the underlying security of any equity CFD which you have entered into, on ex-date, your CFD Account will either be credited for long positions or debited on short positions with an amount equal to the value of any cash dividend.
Odd lots trading must be executed off-line through your Futures Broker’s Representative. CFDs do not confer voting rights in respect of the underlying security.
 
 
CFD Margin

Q1. What is the initial margin?
Initial margin is the margin that you must furnish in order to transact in a CFD and is calculated as a percentage of the full contract value.
Initial margin varies with different CFDs thus you would have to check online for the initial margin on the CFD that you intend to place an order on.
 

Q2. What is Free Equity?
Free Equity is the surplus funds in the CFD account available for creating new buy and sell positions. You will be unable to initiate new positions if your Free Equity is negative.
 

Q3. What is Gross Liquidation Value (GLV)?
GLV is the value of the account if all the positions are closed out at the current market price (excluding all the commission and charges).

GLV= Free Equity + Initial Margin
 

Q4. What is the daily mark-to-market pricing?
Mark-to-market is calculated based on the prevailing market prices of the underlying instrument. This means your initial margins required change in line with the markets movements.
Marked to Market (Initial Margin) = Quantity x Prevailing Market Price x Margin %
 

Q5. What is Margin Call?
A margin call occurs when you no longer have any free equity to cover the margin required to hold that position. You need to have funds in your account over and above that of the required margin to ensure you can cover any unrealised losses the position may incur.
 

Q6. How will I know I am subject to a margin call?
You will receive an email notification from CGS-CIMB Futures informing you of a margin call. You may refer to the Daily Activity Statement for the amount that you are required to top up.
 

Q7. Can I place an order without depositing the initial margin?
No. The system will reject the order if your account has insufficient funds to meet the initial margin requirement(s).
 

Q8. How long do I have before my margin call positions are force sold?
If CGS-CIMB Futures makes a margin call, you must place the amount of margin immediately or within a specified period of time which may be less than two (2) Business Days after the giving of such notice by CGS-CIMB Futures.
 
CGS-CIMB Futures has the sole discretion to force-close the outstanding CFD contracts without further notice to you if you fail to top up the required margin by the specified period of time.


Q9. How do I top up my CFD account when I receive a margin call?
Please refer to the Margin Deposit section.
