SB , CFD or share dealing for day trading - Factoring Costs


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I have mainly use SB for day trading however analyzing all past trades I notice that the main reason for losses is due to the wide spreads on SB. My direction is more often than not correct. However unless the market (equities) is strongly trending I need a decent move in the price to compensate for the bid-ask spread. What inevitable happens is that intraday trades based on a 5min and 30min chart end up lasting all day and I have to close out end market close. 

Naturally stop levels, choice of liquid stocks  need to be addressed but one some trades it seems like if I just bought the shares it would have been a better option. 

The main issue is that I can't short sell shares (in real time)

Anyone done any analysis  on this?

Perhaps better to stick to FX, commodities?

'Day trading' (fannying about on minute charts) on stocks via SB/CFD is a no-go as far as I'm concerned.

 

too risky to leave overnight (unless you use guaranteed stops), but you can't short sel using share dealing so you're back to CFD / SB

    • Allow me to unveil the revolutionary Lifeform project – a groundbreaking development in the realm of virtual identities and avatars for the web3 world.   At its core lies a mind-bogglingly innovative concept. They've developed a state-of-the-art editor that empowers users to create hyper-realistic 3D virtual human avatars, which can serve as digital identities across the metaverse and web3 applications. Brace yourself for a staggering number – over 10 billion possible combinations of facial features and body details, all powered by the cutting-edge Unreal Engine 5, the very same technology behind blockbuster movies and top-tier video games. Impressive, isn't it? But here's the real kicker – these avatars aren't merely for virtual worlds. With Lifeform's DID solution, you can actually utilize your custom avatar as a login method and verified identity for any decentralized app or metaverse platform. It's an NFT-based digital ID that seamlessly grants you access to the entire web3 ecosystem. Remarkably, as early as March 2023, Lifeform had already become the most widely used dApp on the BNB Chain, boasting over 3 million monthly active users. This rapid adoption is a testament to the virtual identity concept's meteoric rise. On top of that, their AI analyzes user activity across blockchains, providing personalized service recommendations based on your crypto asset management strategies. It's a sleek, all-in-one web3 identity platform like no other. And the surprises don't end there. These avatars aren't limited to the metaverse; you can beam your virtual self into Zoom calls, Google Meet, online conferences – you name it. Your avatar mimics your movements and expressions in real-time, courtesy of their cutting-edge plugin. It's like being a real-life hologram! Lifeform is single-handedly bridging the gap between our physical and digital identities in an incredibly accessible manner. They are undoubtedly the key to onboarding the next billion users into the web3 space. It's a genius concept, if you ask me. You can check out it's token $LIFEFORM on the Bitget exchange as it recently got listed.
