How closely do the CFD prices follow the actual stocks. I hadn’t noticed it before but I just noticed there were $3 between the prices for a stock and a CFD just now on tesla. I am now wondering if the patterns and movement is different or if they follow each other with a few £s gap at all times?
CFDs do follow the actual market price and replicate it’s movement completely. Difference may arise from the different sources that are being compared - external source might show Mid-price ( between the Bid and the Ask price), our Invest platform shows Buy Price on the chart and serves only as an indication, whereas, on our CFD platform, Bid and Ask prices are being quoted, with the chart showing the Bid (Sell) price by default.
Thanks Peter, that answers my question.
