Hi - I have a couple of questions regarding spreadbetting and opening a live account ( have a virtual account with TradIndex ). Firstly do guys that spreadbet generally trade short term - daily. Or are there spreadbetters that take positions and hold them the days or weeks?? I have taken a few positions but tend to have my trade stopped out during the day - although the positions then continue in my favour - so my stops are not high enough i am guessing. Also how do spreadbetting firms make money - i thought it was from spreads - but if this was the case then why is there a lot of talk about people having there accounts closed for making too much money - why would this matter??
