If you have significant trading experience, you may be eligible for ‘professional’ status – making you exempt from product restrictions and leverage limits.
For professionals only. Losses can exceed deposits. Negative balance protection is not available for professional accounts.*
Recent changes to the regulatory landscape do not restrict professional traders. In fact, eligible traders see their margin rates decrease on many markets.
As a pro trader, you’ll enjoy a range of exclusive advantages, including eligibility for a dedicated individual client manager.
You’ll be able to use up to 95% of the value of your shareholdings as margin to cover any spread bets and CFD trades – freeing up your share portfolio funds.
Pro traders are still able to trade digital 100s – which means you can take advantage of opportunities in quiet markets using our fixed-risk yes/no product.
If you become a professional client, some of the features that protect you as a retail client will no longer apply.*
* Digital 100s have been restricted to professional clients since 2 July 2018, while margin restrictions have been in place for retail clients since 28 July 2018. Please note that certain features that protect you as a retail client will not apply to professional traders.
