I've been practicing and learning on the demo account side of IG's platforms and seem to have a solid working strategy that I'm happy with.
My question is - Is there and wild differences on the 'live' account anything that I need to be aware of, or will the live platform operate in the same way as the demo account. Apart from the obvious that my capital is live, I'm meaning in the fundamental operation of using the account.
For instance I've been using the spread betting side of the system and understand how to open positions, close and using stop & limit levels and happy with my results, when I transfer to the live platform I'm going to open a few positions as and when I feel necessary. I'm just wondering if there is anything which will appear different or if I will be met with any fundamental operating process' - I've read a post on this forum which stated a user was buying shares and they were immediately being sold...
Hope any information can alleviate my concerns - thank you for the contributions in advance and keep up the brilliant advice as part of these forums - there's plenty of information hidden in some of the forum links.
