Contracts for Difference (CFD’s) are traded on margin, which means that there is no need to purchase the equivalent stock position. This also allows traders to open larger positions than their capital would otherwise allow.

The CFD industry is not highly regulated. They are traded over the counter (OTC) through regulated CFD brokers rather than being listed on regulated exchanges like stocks and bonds.

CFD's are a risky investment, and the main risk lies within the market moves that can turn against you. Researching the markets and general trading fundamentals are suggested so that you are familiar with the risk you will be exposed to.

You wil be subject to Income Tax on profits. For more information contact your local tax office or tax advisor.

RMDTRADER does not have a strict minimum deposit – our clients are welcome to invest whatever they are comfortable with. We do, however, recommend starting at around $250, particularly if you require training. The minimum deposit amount depends on the base currency of your account.

Deposits are allocated almost instantaneously but because this is done manually, we try to adhere to a maximum TAT of one hour during business hours. Please be aware that this window may be slightly longer around news events, etc.


The time it takes for funds to appear in your account may vary depending on the deposit method used:


  1. Credit/debit cards take approximately 24 hours to process (from time of receipt).
  2. Wire transfer deposits take approximately one to two business days to process (from time of receipt).

RMDTRADER does not charge any commission or fee as a result of your trading.

Withdrawals are processed Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, GMT +2 (South African Standard Time), with all others being acted on within 24 hours.

Withdrawals are paid from our bank accounts to yours within four hours after approval, usually from the same bank. Regular money transfers normally take approximately three to six business days for approval; however, please keep in mind that there are several factors which might affect the speed in which your account is credited/debited.

To change your account details, please contact your Client Relationship Manager or a member of our support team.
