While I was investigating what is "spread trading" and "CFD's", I discovered a website by Saxo Capital Markets that I thought had some interesting features for traders looking to explore these particular products. Let me start off by giving a brief description of what spread trading is. Imagine instead of trading in contracts, shares, or units for the different futures, stock, or currency products you trade, but rather trading based on risking a certain amount per tick movement. In other words, you choose a risk amount and that is what you can make/lose per tick movement in the underlying product's price. This is easier for some people to grasp that traditional "contracts" in the futures markets, in which it can sometimes be a little bit complicated to calculate tick value movements. Basically, it is a simpler way of trading with the potential to trade much different quantities that traditional futures, stock, or forex trading.
There were several things that stood out to me as I was going over the information and products available at Saxo Capital Markets. The first being that they do not have a minimum deposit for their "classic account". From what I understand about spread trading and CFD's and Saxo's no minimum deposit (for classic accounts), is that you could potentially open an account and start trading with a relatively small sum of money as compared to traditional futures or stock accounts.
Other features that stood out strongly about Saxo's website were in their webinar section. I found particularly interesting the four following webinars:
