Types of accounts


Recommended Posts

I have two trial accounts with titles CFD and Spread betting.
When I open the CFD trial account, will all the stocks / indices be CFD's. Just that with other platforms, with a single account I can select between Equity / CFD.

Also, when if I want to buy physical stock, do I also need to open a ShareDealing account?

Thanks

Hi, the SB and CFD accounts are basically the same but SB has some tax advantages, they both have the same markets to trade.

And yes, to trade physical stock you need a share dealing account.

If I open a LIVE account can i Sharedeal (buy real shares) and CFD and SB with that single live account ?

no, SB is just a type of CFD and a cfd is where you are trading contracts for the difference in the price between when you buy and when you sell, you are never actually taking delivery of any actual stock.

Apologies, I haven't been clear. 
If I open a live account, will that single account allow be to Share deal as well as CFD and SB or will I be required to create different types of live accounts (1 account for Sharedealing, 1 account for SB/CFD) ?

that's right you need 2 different accounts. SB and CFD are leveraged accounts so you are unable to use them for trading actual stocks, for that you need the non-leveraged Share Dealing account.

What type of account i need to open for ETFs?

 

You need a Share Dealing account to trade physical ETFs. You can trade those on leveraged accounts as well (SB and CFD).

Thanks,

Jakub

    • Look Ahead to 08/02/23: Oil inventories; TTEF, DIS, UBER and BDEV earnings Oil, tech, and the consumer are set to dominate the markets on Wednesday, with earnings from TotalEnergies (TTEF), EIA data, and results from Walt Disney (DIS) and Uber Technologies (UBER).

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
