How do I switch my account from CFD trading to share trading?

Hi, I think you just need to open a new share dealing account and then transfer funds across. As share dealing is non-leveraged there should be no extra hoops to jump through to open the account.

It's an easy way to lose lots of money.

Hello, CFD's are Contracts for difference. You don't own any asset when trading CFD's but you only trade for the difference in price of the asset you are trading. A benefit to CFD's over holding an asset is that you can set the system to automatically sell your CFD when a profit level is reached or when a loss is reached. When you hold an asset like shares the value of your asset will increase or decline but you will need to place an instruction to sell to close it off. Another benefit of CFD's is that you don't need a buyer or seller to close your trade as apposed to holding a share you will need a buyer to take your shares but if they are declining in value that makes them of little interest for a buyer of your shares.

I would sum up the benefits of CFD's as follows.

1) You don't need a buyer or seller to close or sell your CFD trade.

2) You can sell your CFD anytime your like & set the system to automatically sell your CFD if you reach your profit or loss.  This means you don't need to be at the screen 24/7, although it is advisable to monitor your trades.

    • Dax and Dow break up through near term resistance, Dow and S&P into new all time highs. China markets up 2% on signing of trade deal. GBPUSD up over 2% following the Conservative win in the UK election.
    • Overnight risk on as Indices continue higher after US/China signing phase 1 deal and Conservative win in UK election, Oil up, Bonds and Gold down. Today US retail sales 1:30pm.  
    • My view has still not changed. I am expecting a 'Short' trading opportunity here in Live Cattle once its upward move has completed. Before this happens I want to see confirmation that the upward trend is weakening and the reversal is beginning.
