I havent traded with idealCFD, but I love and use their live data and charts. How do you practically do the "trading off the chart" thing?

Well they have moved the deal ticker directly to the charts ... so makes it easier to trade, no opening and closing of window ... everthing on one page.

I just wish they would give a bit more bid/ask volume information. Also, I don't like the lock-in on the spread. it means your stop gets kicked in based on bid/ask and not ruling price, which is a bit expensive, IMO

Guys, regarding IdealCFD costs, they have a commission structure minimum R75 per trade. Now i haven't worked out if the same commission applies on the sale, but this makes CFD's way more expensive than SSF's via STB. Regarding spread, I don't have another platform, but DWT doesn't use a fixed spread - and you can see bid/ask volumes.

Volume would be nice on ideal, I not saying to trade through the platform ! ... But yes the comm is high, From a TA point of view it is one of the best out there and for R70.00 a month for live Equite feed ( think price has increased for R45.00) you can not compare this to price streamer
