Central Bank Interest Rates

Central bank interest rate is the rate, which is used by the country's central banking institution to lend short-term money to the country's commercial banks. Interest rates also play an important role in Forex market. Because the currencies bought via broker are not delivered to the buyer, broker should pay trader an interest based on the difference between "short" currency interest rate and "long" currency interest rate.

Forex trading bears intrinsic risks of loss. You must understand that Forex trading, while potentially profitable, can make you lose your money. Never trade with the money that you cannot afford to lose! Trading with leverage can wipe your account even faster.

CFDs are leveraged products and as such loses may be more than the initial invested capital. Trading in CFDs carry a high level of risk thus may not be appropriate for all investors.
