I have been reading everything I can about CFD's but still have a fair few questions.
Currently we're trading mainly indices through IG Markets although we are starting to notice a few of the tricks spoken about on here. Things like opening/closing a position nowhere near where it was when we executed, spikes in the market that didnt happen anywhere else etc.
Now we're starting to wonder if there is a better provider for indices, or different things we can try to maximise our gains on the IG platform.
Are there any rules people follow or things they look for? Whats an average margin that you risk? Do you trade the full contracts or minis?
If anyone has any advice or answers they would be greatly appreciated.
