You need to be a professional investor / industry insider and / or have £500,000 to open a CFD account.  I suspect having at least £500,000 to deposit is given the greater weight.

Don't understand the question but a CFD account is similar to a spread betting account but with different tax liabilities. You only need the 500k or industry experience if you want to be registered as a professional and so have access to greater leverage. Because SB and CFD are leveraged there is a higher qualifying bar than that of a share dealing account such as min  income and savings.

    • FCA rules to ban crypto products are dumb. I used to have a Bitcoin ETN in my SIPP which was affected by the ban, meaning I could no longer buy the product anymore, only sell it. I sold it recently with a heavy heart knowing under the current rules I could not buy it again.   With the proceeds I bought a range of Bitcoin mining stocks like Argo Blockchain, Hut8 and Mara which act as a leveraged play on Bitcoin price (like all commodity miners do versus the underlying commodity). These miners carry greater operational risk than holding Bitcoin itself and the share price is much more volatile too. So instead of protecting me, all the FCA has done is forced me to take greater risk elsewhere.

    • If you still think the billions being spent on infrastructure is just to see off the covid endemic now might be a good time to wake up.    Meanwhile in Taiwan, 'Well that's strange: In Taiwan, the number of people dying after their COVID-19 vaccination is exceeding the number of deaths from the virus itself.'  1nPr0p0rt10n2 @1Pr0p0rt10n2  4h More Die After Vaccination Than From COVID-19 in Taiwan (ntd.com)   A US hospital healthcare worker explains the use of the PCR to inflate covid hospitalisations and death numbers.
