I'm looking at trading some Forex/CFD's and am currently analyzing brokers. One question I have is - what advantages/disadvantages are there if I my account funds are stored in non-AUD (e.g. USD). I expect to the majority of instruments (but not all) I'll be trading will be US based.
One advantage I see to AUD is that I know straight away how much is in my account. One disadvantage I see to having a USD/EUR account is that my account funds are then subject to market fluctuations.
Anyway, I'm very keen on your thoughts?
