What % LVR do CFDs with providers like MFG or IGmarkets provide?
Or am I completely missing something? AFAIK, CFDs are synthetically the same as purchasing/shorting stocks on a margin?
Just trying to figure out if it is worth opening a CFD account or just trading on margin with IB? If I can get the same leverage with IB, why setup another account with another provider who'll charge more data/platform fees?
Obviously there are other pros/cons for having a dedicated CFD provider. One thing I am slightly aware of is that it can be difficult at times to get stock to short with IB.
