buy now, but how

Question

Very simple question, the simplest of all I suspect? I'd like to buy some amazon shares. Can I buy £1,000,000 using £250,000 of my own funds ? Thanks all

Hi @NoviceExtremis, not so simple really. If you are looking to buy actual shares with leverage (a loan) you are going to need a bank loan.

If you are looking to buy with broker leverage you will need to buy a shares derivative through a spread betting account or Contract For Difference account. If you are looking to hold that contract for the long term it would need to be a futures (forward) type contract.

You can find all the relevant info from the drop down boxes on the IG home page header and ask any questions here on the forum if needed.

    • Trump tweets OPEC "Get prices down now!" - EMEA brief 21 Sep
      Brent crude has its eyes on $80 a barrel and is currently trading at its highest level in 4 years, all despite efforts of Trump's Tweets for OPEC to "get prices down now". On the other hand, global equity markets are shining with the Japanese Nikkei hitting an 8-month high, Chinese shares on course to make their biggest weekly gains in 2 years, and a strong earnings outlook expected to continue.
