i have become a bit skeptical of SB and CFD brokers, there platforms offer prices quite different to the actual market. now obviously when trading SB and CFDs there is no stock and its just a bet, so if you make money it comes out of your brokers pocket and if you loose money it goes in the brokers pocket and its the way the brokers make money and loose money, so the broker will obviously be trapping you into losing money. there softwares i believe are designed for this and completely go against the trader, they give you demo accounts where you will turn into a millionaire quite easily to lure you into making a real account with them, where the real accounts are much harder to trade. there really is no success story out there of people who have made money from trading in this way, the only traders that you hear stories of making money are professionals working with professional trading companies. its funny that out of millions of retail traders all over the world no one makes money apart from CMC, gft, CS, IG etc. is there anyone out there who has made money with spread bets or cfds.
