I just received an email from ABN Amro explaining their new Mini "CFD". I have been traing warrants for few years and I have never been really interested in CFDs because of the large downside risk I can see in it.
Nevertheless minis sounds much more interesting as the downside is limited to what you invest. The interest on a long or short is 300 pts above the cash rate and there is an automatic stop loss and not time component .
Also the mini follows the underlying share price.
I am wondering if someone who has traded minis in the past could explain me what are the advantage and disadvantages of these products compared to for example warrants or CFDs.
