What is Margin trading and Leverage?

Leverage enables you to gain a large exposure to a financial market while only tying up a relatively small amount of your capital. In this way, leverage magnifies the scope for both gains and losses.

We only require you to deposit a small amount of margin to hold large positions, for most of our products the typical margin rate is only 1%.

Even though you only put up a relatively small amount of capital to open a position, your profit or loss is based on the full value of the position. Therefore, the amount you gain or lose could be relatively large compared to your initial outlay.

For more information please check our Trading page.

What are the risks of CFD trading and how to manage them?

1. Losing more than the money in your account:

CFDs are leveraged meaning you only need to put up a fraction of your trade’s value to open it. So you could lose – or gain – much more than your initial deposit.

You can mitigate risk and lock in profits by setting an automatic stop or limit, to define the level you’d like your trade closed at.

2. Having your positions closed unexpectedly, resulting in you losing money.

You need a certain amount of money in your account to keep your trades open. This is called margin, and if your account balance doesn’t cover our margin requirements we may close your positions for you.

Keep an eye on your always-visible running balances in our platform or app and add more funds if they’re needed.

3. Sudden or larger-than-expected losses (or gains).

Markets can be volatile, moving very quickly and unexpectedly in reaction to announcements, events or trader behaviour.

As well as setting stops, you can also be notified of significant movement by setting a price or distance alert, giving you the choice of whether or not to react.

4. Having an order (an instruction you give us, to open or close a trade for you when the market hits a certain level) filled at a different level to the one you requested.

When a market moves a long way in an instant – or ‘gaps’ – any orders you have placed may be filled at a worse level than the one you requested. This is called slippage.

Check our Risk Management page for more details.

My existing broker says they are an FSPR, why is GPP Markets better?

GPP Markets was granted a Derivate Issuer License in New Zealand, this requires us to adhere to strict rules and regulations and means we are monitored by the Financial Markets Authority.  The FSPR or Financial Service Provider Register is simply a register of financial companies in New Zealand, this is been abused by a number of overseas companies trying make out they have a license when in fact they do not.  They are often not even based in New Zealand.

You should only deal with licensed companies and carefully check who you are dealing with as many unlicensed companies do not safeguard your money and are often simply scams.

For more information please check our Licensed and Regulated page.
