How does leverage work in ETF CFDs?

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a financial instrument that tracks (and sometimes amplifies) the market price of the top companies within a specific financial sector, such as aerospace, banking, energy, technology, or commodity, such as oil, natural gas, gold or lithium.

Trading ETFs with leverage allows you to multiply the size of a trade through the use of borrowed capital. As such, you can increase the potential profit or loss to be realised from the trade. Plus500’s available leverage for ETFs CFDs is 1:100.
