This is probably a seriously dumb question ... but has anyone worked out the actual percentage that the underlying must move to cover the cost of trading SSFs or CFDs, especially as regards the "market makers spread rate" of 0.4% (for SSFs) and 0.35% for CFDs which would not apply to trading the underlying directly? If so details would be much appreciated.
It would be great if OST could add these calculators to the website. That way you can always work out exactly what your break-even point is including fees, vat and all other costs. Tax/capital gains tax also come into the picture somwhere.
