CFD and Spread accounts orders in one place

Question

the problem I'm having is having to switch back and forth between my cfd and spread account to close trades, is there anyway

i can have in either my cfd or spread account a workspace window that shows both my cfd and spread open orders together, would be a massive help 

to not have to keep switching accounts.

 It wont let me have a second browser tab open either with the different account, if i switch to cfd in one tab then the other tab changes to the cfd aswell automatically.

Anybody that can help please.

Hi, do you really need both types of account? Spread Betting is just a tax efficient form of CFD. The platforms should be basically the same but I may be wrong, is there something you have found on one and not the other?

    • Thanks for the feedback.  I currently use TV for my technical analysis, as the features available on IG platform are not quite on par. The fundamental data functionality is good if you are looking / using at a micro level, but not quite what I'm after.  Providers I had in mind were the likes of Stockopedia, MorningStar premium etc. - something that can a consolidated view in an easily digestable / usable manner.   
    • If in the UK you can buy physical silver (coins or bars) from the royal mint or royal mint authorised dealers. Just search the internet. You probably want to buy whatever is captial gains tax exempt (I think silver britannias are). Shop around for the best price and also be careful about VAT as I think you may have to pay that on some purchases and not on others . Of course when you buy physical silver in UK as an investment you also have to consider what GBP/ USD is up to as any change in  exchange rate in future will affect your return (as silver is priced in USD). If you don't want physical then you could buy shares in a silver ETF (eg. SSLN) which is  backed by physical metal or if you want to spread bet it you could buy spot silver. It all depends why you want to buy it. If just as an investment then you get a better return buying etf or spread betting (easier to cash in when you want to and potentially less hassles with tax). If you are worried the banking system will freeze up and you can't get money out at some point in the future ( possibly not likely but you can never rule it out) then it's physical - stored outside the banking system either with a company or stored somewhere by yourself. I'm not an expert on this but have just read a bit about it lately as lots of articles suggesting silver will go higher over the next months / year.  
    • I don't know. But there is good profit taking.
