    Question Trading before the market opens - CFDs Australian Sectors

    Hi Gents, I'm new to this so please tread easy.

    I'm trading CFD's (Australian Sectors) through CMC.

    I've noticed that once the market opens for trading, to the likes of me (IE.general public), that there can be some considerable changes to the price from the closing price from the day before, sometime in the case of the "Energy or Materials Sectors" it can be hundreds of points.

    Is there trading before the market opens to the General Public?
    If so, is it possible to get in on this through a broker or any other method?

    Your help would be greatly appreciated

    this is the manipulation that occurs by the CFD, spread betting providers, I dont believe this happens in the real market, i.e. all ords, asx 200, energy sector etc

    you could literally watch things go -ative then +itive very quickly

    several years ago now, I just had a massive stop loss, around 500pts on the Aussie200, spi200 or whatever they call it now
