City Index CFD and IG market CFD

Anyone tried any of the above? (I like the low financing rate)

I apply for both. Ig Market demo (testing it at the moment). I found that the comprehensive interface is very good and best of all it very responsive.

City Index However, i dump $500 deposit into opening account. But I realise tat its too "simple" No low and high and sometimes chart take ages to load. Although commission is $10 flat. But i dun dare to trade with it. After the 3 month lock in period, i will do a withdrawal.

Just a add on, saxo capital. The interface was messy. I immediately log out after i log in.

I have traded on both platform, although city index does not have some of the things on their trading platform that IG have, I found this refreshing and easy to use and had no problems with executing trades. In addition, I find the staff very helpful and very knowledgeable of their own product which is hard to find.

as far as i know CMC spreads are terrible and the old platform sucks. Heard they have a new platform, so i don't know. But they are not getting a 2nd chance from me..

City Index is OK but my impression is that they target low volume traders. Not that I'd like to deposit 100k or something like that but sometimes I think it can be a bit more professional. But overall pretty good.

I have accounts with CMC, IG and CityIndex.

I find all 3 easy to use with CityIndex having the most attractive commissions. Currently, I am using CMC's new gen platform.

IG's interface is clean and neat but the data feed is 20 mins delayed by default. A $3 monthly fee is applicable for sg shares and it will be refunded at the end of the month if at least 1 trade is made. There is also a min charge of $25 for each transaction (yuck)

CMC builds the commissions into the bid and ask prices so the spreads may look "bad". But the P/L is nett and I like it this way. There is also no minimum charge and the data is live.
