CFD Trading
Trade thousands of CFDs on reliable trading software. Leverage up to 1:30 is available in line with regulatory restrictions. Beginners can also utilize the firm's training videos. Libertex's list of CFDs covers a decent range of tradeable underlying assets, but there isn't much depth with only around 250 in total. Leverage up to 1:30 for retail clients is available in accordance with CySEC regulations, and traders can choose between three excellent trading platforms. Best of all are the tight spreads available on all markets and the zero commissions on investments in stocks.
