    Default MM CFD providers and TA

    Since MM CFD providers have differing prices to the ASX, would it pretty much make TA redundant using their data?

    How are the prices actually calculated, just a similar model to what the ASX uses? Are they influenced much by the real u/l, or are they just moved by the CFD provider's participants?

    Edit: Another thing... if one was to trade using a MM, should you use their data for analysis or the ASX?

    Swingstar i base my analysis on Australian Stock Report (as they trade CFD's). Bascically i then work around that.

    Works for me

    I'm paper trading a rule-based system using CMC data, and a lot of times entry signals are on CMC's data but not the ASX, so I'm a bit concerned. I suppose it should be fine if I make sure I use CMC for the duration of the backtest? Only problem is, I'm not sure how their prices are evaluated... if it's based on some unknown and not market variables, then I'm not sure if I should expect the same or similar results using a DMA provider, which I will do with real money (probably Mac).
