What is the Max Loss on a Long Option on CFD?


Recommended Posts

If I go long a CFD on an option that is priced at 4.44 on a strike price of 2250 of the underlying (screenshot attached), could anyone confirm my logic is correct please:

- the option price is 4.44

- if I bet 0.5 per point, this means the max I can lose = 4.44 * 0.5 * 100 [multiplier] = 222

I'm confusing myself because I'm taking a position on CFD rather than the actual option, I just want to be 100% sure my understanding of the nature of CFD is correct.

Thanks very much for your help!

Thanks for your post @jamiesays

When you're buying a call or a put on a CFD account the maximum loss is the buy price x  contract size x bet size. With CFD accounts you have the check the contract size.  You can find the contract size in the get info section. Below is an example for the FTSE100.
