Peakoil i don't think you and gle are talking about the same thing :) , i think he meant a default SL - in points - feature , which you can preset so everytime you open a new trade an automated sl will be added to your position ...
Yes thank you, you are correct in your description of the auto stop loss I am referring to.

Optional is fine with me. Thank you for pointing that out. By saying it's optional, I trust you mean that DF markets has an optional auto generated stop loss, so that if a client also wants to open positions without any stop loss and at a later point in time, place one, then that is allowed too.
Yes good that you say "optional", a user predefine auto generated stop loss in points, is what I actually meant, this to make myself clear. Many like me doesn't like to "fiddle" around with numbers setting the stop loss, especially in a volatile market.

DF Markets do not have this auto stop feature, but you can set it after opening the trade in dollar lost, which make it a little bit easier. Still you are not doing it in the same instant as you are opening the trade. As I pointed out before, not many platforms left without the option to set a user auto generated predefine stop loss in points. I come to think of only a few, Prospreads being one, and DF Markets of course, as they were the reason for this discussion taking place.

Hi guys

I`ve visited DF Markets spread betting website and noticed that the EUR/USD spread is only 0.6 pips which is great. I intend to open a demo with them. Does anyone have any experience with DF Markets spread betting? :)

There are so many of these guys popping up. 0.6 pip spread – they have to be making their money somewhere, most likely by running a book and relying on chipping away with bad fills and re-quotes. I prefer ECNs with access to bank liquidity. Bigger spreads and charges, but you know what you’re getting – saves you a fortune in the long run.

Remember Worldspreads? 0 pips. They’re not working for free! What happened to them?!

If you give it a go, let us know how they are!

Yes you are probably right, but DF Markets have been good trading with and I would be surprised if you find a single bad review out there. The average spread is 1 point on the DF platform I am trading. I did have a look at DF platforms and apparently they offer ECN as well.

Sounds good! Please post if things change, might give them a whirl.

The only thing about their platform is that they are a little bit slow in execution time. To be honest trading Forex, I would go with another company which has a much faster execution time. Preferably ECN and with a platform like cTrader.
