Hi All, In searching through the forums I've found a few threads on CFDs but as yet haven't been able to find any on ASX Listed CFDs.... So I thought I'd start one and hope that everyone puts in a little and we all might learn I have been trading on the ASX CFD Simulator - https://www.asxsmg.com.au/ I've also gone to ASX's seminar on CFDs which was great by the way, I'd highly recommend it. ASX CFDs are the only type I've experienced and at this point the one type I'd trust having read about OTC and market made CFDs. Once I've done enough broker comparison I'll be setting up a real account. A couple of weeks ago I found a great article with a full write up on the top CFD brokers with tables comparing costs, support and what is available to trade... but I can't locate it now! If I find it I'll post it up. The main thing I see people saying with CFDs are of course that they are VERY risky. But in my opinion that risk is quite manageable if you bet small and go for small gains, i.e. only go long or short on a small number of CFDs at a time and/or think to yourself - if the market goes in the opposite direction, how much can I afford to lose from my cash account? Whatever that is, work out your trade based on that. Of course there are market anomalies such as the quite recent Dubai debt warning, which could likely cause a scare with almost any CFD holding. Apart from stop loss I don't have an answer on how to mitigate that type of risk. But again, betting small and going for small gains worked and my small simulated holdings didn't take a huge hit and recovered still at profit. But I digress. I'm still learning so I wanted to ask if anyone out there has had experience trading ASX CFDs and would like to share their knowledge. When trading the real thing, How do they compare to OTC CFDs? What broker do you use and why? Have you tried them found any criticisms? Is anyone else playing around with the ASX CFD simulator and wondering if they should go for the real thing? Or just any general comments about them? Thanks All.
