Trade CFD-Futures

CFD futures are based on futures contracts traded on futures exchanges with an expiry date which GBE brokers publishes on its website . In contrast to exchange-traded futures, there is no physical delivery for CFD futures in the event of an open position after the expiry date. Open CFD futures positions are automatically closed on the expiry date and the price difference between the opening price of the position and the price at which the position is closed is either credited or debited to the trading account. In addition, the expiry dates of CFD futures may differ slightly from those of exchange-traded futures, as CFD futures often expire on the day on which the trading volume changes. The minimum trading volume for CFD futures is 0.01 lots and there are no swap fees if positions are held overnight.

If you believe that the value of the DAX CFD future will rise, then, for example, you buy (long) 0.1 lot of DAX CFD future at the current market price at an index level of 16,000 points. Let's assume that the price of the DAX CFD future rises to 16,100 points. If you close your long position in the DAX CFD future that you previously bought at the current market price of 16,100 points, this results in a difference of 100 points or EUR 250.00 profit (1 DAX CFD futures point corresponds to EUR 2.50 for 0.1 lot). And vice versa.
