Barrier vs CFD vs Turbo24

Recommended Posts

Good afternon, another super newbie question, I can't get my head around this...

what are the main differences between buying  a

  • SP500 Barrier Call
  • SP500 CFD
  • SP500 Long Turbo 24

Do the Barrier and Turbo24 work similiar to a CFD with a stop loss? If so, what's the point in buying a Barrier or a Turbo24?

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi @LuigiLuigi

Thanks for the question

There are a few differences, however these are some of the important ones to take note of. 


  • You have flexibility over leverage
  • They are limited risk(you can only lose the premium paid to open) but the potential profit is unlimited
  • Barriers have an expiry


  • You have flexibility over leverage(You decide your leverage based on the KO-level)
  • Also limited risk- you know maximum loss when you open the trade
  • Traded on Exchange
  • Traded 24/5
  • Possible to add a stop to avoid being knocked out
  • All fees included in initial cost of open (except the commission). Overnight funding is not debited from turbo account

In summary Barriers/Turbos offer flexibility over leverage, limited risk and are less capital intensive than CFDs. You can get exposure for far less than in a CFD. 

Hope this helps

All the best

    • Scallops Chart Pattern are J-shaped, inverted J-shaped, or mirror J-shaped continuation patterns that appear often during trending markets. This pattern has a steep momentum and a rounded bottom or top. The structure is pretty smooth at first, then the market begins to rush up with significant momentum, or vice versa. Scallop patterns appear less frequently than other continuation patterns such as flags or pennants, yet they are among the most stable forms.   Types of Scallops Chart Patterns There are four types of Scallops, two of which suggest bullish movement, while the other two imply bearish movement.   Ascending Scallop Pattern Inverted Ascending Scallop Pattern Descending Scallop Pattern Inverted Descending Scallop Pattern Read More -   Scallops Chart Pattern
