Spread is more than amount indicated

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm trying to find out why the spread indicated is much more than when I open position. 

I bought 1 Bitcoin ($1) going short with current spread of 36 but as soon as I enter the position  my profit is already down by extra $30, so total amount of around minus $66

For example if I entered a position at 7,134 and exit at same price at 7134 I am suppose to be minus $36 but instead I am minus $66 dollars almost double the spread.

I am using RealTimePro and the position entered on the chart looks right to me but on the Scalping Order Book it's showing that extra 30 pips and Open Positions display showing the same thing.

Anyone know why?

Thanks in advance.

    • Hi, I'm also new, have been lurking here for years, so welcome  Most markets are closed during the weekend, but there are weekend contracts on major indices. For crypto, it trades 24/7 like everywhere else, but there is a window form 11pm-12pm UTC on Friday where it is closed as well. Might be for maintenance of the platform.  Hope this helps!

    • CFD stands for contract for difference. A CFD account allows you to take the profit or loss between a buy and sell position (or vice versa if you are short) across a number of different instruments, including shares, forex, commodities and bonds. This means you do not actually purchase the shares, and thus do not pay capital gains tax or stamp duty. All the shares listed under the live accounts are also listed under the demo accounts. That means if the share is not listed under the demo, it also will not be listed under the live account. However, the share you mentioned, NAOV, seems to be listed under the CFD account on my live and demo CFD account, so I am not quite sure what the problem is. I have attached a screenshot below of the ticker.
