HOW DOES IT WORK under the hood?

At BUX you trade in Contracts for Difference, or CFDs. This is a financial product that behaves exactly like a stock. The price of a Facebook CFD, for example, follows Facebook’s share price 1-to-1. You will also receive dividends on a CFD when a company pays this out. In short, there’s little difference between the two.

So why not just deal in shares then? Because in traditional stock markets, there’s quite a bit involved – and not least of all, there are the costs. CFDs aren’t traded on the stock exchange so we can keep the process painless and the costs super low.

CFDs are issued by a bank or other financial institution. BUX is a trading name of ayondo markets Limited, a registered company that is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the UK financial regulator.

Responsible Trading

Trading can be fun, educational and exciting. Not to mention profitable. But you can also lose money. First tip: Don’t trade with money you’re not prepared to lose. And if you’re trading with seriousBUX (real money), start small. To protect you and lend a hand, we’ve put in place some unique security measures. This is to ensure trading with BUX is fun and stays fun.

Diversification

When your account value is above £500, you’re not allowed to put all your money into a single trade. Spreading your money means spreading your risk, and we want to encourage this.

TRADING 101

If you have zero experience with the stock market, then you're first required to practice with funBUX, our virtual currency. Only then, once you get the hang of it, can you move on to seriousBUX, or trading with real money.

Limited Leverage

Many online brokers offer leverage up to 200x. It's a way to earn a lot in a short time but of course, the flip side is that you can lose as much just as quickly. To us, that's irresponsible trading. So we offer limited leverage with our 'multipliers.' These range from x5 for stocks up to a maximum of x30 when trading currencies.

AND IF YOU LOSE

...then you can never lose more than the amount you've invested in a trade with BUX. Sounds pretty logical but with many other brokers, this isn't the case because of excessive leverage. That's why we try to prevent huge losses by offering limited leverage.

Transparency

We like to keep it clear. Which is why, with the tap of a button, you can instantly see the transaction fees for a trade. And for the seasoned traders, we don't have 'spread' (different rates for buying and selling). We simply use one price for both buying and selling.

Alerts & Auto Close

Of course, you have better things to do than to watch your trades all day, waiting for the best time to close them. So with BUX, you can set alerts. You get a push message when a specified price is almost reached. And if you use our auto-close feature, it automatically closes your position when it reaches a predetermined limit of your choice. So you can have full control and zero worries.

Your capital is at risk. CFDs are not suitable for all investors. Please ensure that you understand the risks involved.
