CFDs have no minimum or maximum trade size

Theoretically, there is no minimum or maximum size to trade CFDs in. So you could buy 1 share or 1 million and 1.
But of course, with small trades, costs can be very expensive as most brokers will probably use some minimum commission rate. I would think in the £10 – £20 range.
