I have been using CFDs for a couple of years now. I am on to my second CFD provider after my first insisted on implementing an update of their charting software that was absolutely terrible (I think you know what company I am referring to)!
I find their customer service amazing...when I am asking for the forms to open an account...but not so good when I need some help.
Anyway, I thought my new provider was good. However, today, 2 things have finally gotten to me.
1. I am constantly getting re-quotes. By the time I can actually get into a position, the price has moved up to 8pts! needless to say, I do not accept any re-quotes!!!
2. I was watching a 1 min chart of the AUS200 and a large price move appeared at 11am. It was also on the SPI, so nothing dodgy about that. But then after a few more min, the SPI had a few more bars on it...where as my poor bar chart was still on this one bar with a large price range. After 5min, I finally got another bar. The time on this bar was 11:05am. For someone who looks for patterns in price, this sort of service is practically stealing money!
On the bright side, they asked me for a screen shot to look into it. No outcome from that yet.
I am becoming most frustrated with trying to trade CFD's!!
