Humbly requesting some advice from the traders with lots of experience. I am a small investor with an appetite for risk . Which would be the better option on OST, SSF or CFD? Does OST offer stop loss options on both and which route is more cost effective with smaller trades Ã¢Â€Â“ max 5 contracts (SSF)?
I was out of the loop for 2 years. Been back a year. Prior to that I was able to place stop/loss on SSF's. Is there anything going back two years that I can read up on about Safex and the change in rules.
The problem with alerts are that you're not always with your computer when an alert comes through. Personally, when I came back from my break I lost an unspeakable amount of money because SSF's are not liquid and there's no stop/loss. Now, the best instrument I've ever traded is the alsi. If only the ALSH graph will work most of the time as I use that and the Almi as indicators. I've more than made up for my losses in a short space of time. and all you've got to do is watch the global markets. No technical analys. By the way Simon, I'd like to suggest we have a seminar on the challenges faced by the individual day trader.
