    DMA CFDs? Is it all above board?

    What scares me most about CFDs is the alleged hunting of stop losses. I gather that should be impossible on DMA CFDs, by definition; but am curious if any of those who use(d) them have had any concerns in this regard. Any other negative experiences with DMA CFDs? (Apart from just making a...

    Hello, Just doing a bit of research and I would like some feedback please on the following questions. What type of CFD's are Traders trading, DMA, Market Made or the ASX listed CFDs? Why are you trading one type over another? Have you moved from market made to DMA, and why? Thanks.
