Hi Dean, I would recommend that you understand the leverage implications of trading CFDs/spread bets. Coming from a hard cash share dealing background, make sure you understand position sizing and margin requirements. 

CFDs are taxed differently from shares. Some people use it mainly for hedging. You can find more info on this on the IG academy website.

All the best

    • My brain isn't working properly any more
    • I would says so, unless you are dealing with short time frames and large sums of money and you are able to be glued to the screen 100% of the time and give it your full attention.
    • So that's a bearish candle, after an up move that's running out of steam (with small read bodies and long legs), falling back down towards established Fibonacci levels, with a MACD crossing from above 0 and RSI below 50     At one point I had the RSI set to 9, and that additionally gives an overbought divergence (price goes higher but RSI doesn't).  This also gives a nice oversold indication when the move down is coming to an end
