brewski1984 started this thread All I can see today is having another go at shorting usd/jpy from around the same area as yesterday, I'd really like to trade Oil but I don't have a sufficient account to have a wide enough stop with CMC minimum stakes of 50p a point. I'd have a guess a lot of people lose their accounts by thinking they can deposit a few hundred quid without realising 50p a point is too high risk for that size - they are set up to fail before they've even started.
