I’m very new to the world of Trading and Trading 212. I’ve spent the past few days researching info about how to trade etc and i have decided swing trading sounds the best option for me.
I am currently using the Demo CFD account but i am struggling with actually purchasing shares with a Stop/Loss + Take Profit. I have attached two screenshots.
My questions are as follows;
- The buy price top right is at “£55.893” but when i enter 1 share it comes to £3.70 (10 @ £36.68~), why is this?
- When i try and buy these shares with a Stop/Loss + Take Profit, i get a pop up “the distance value must be higher than the current market spread”. What is this and how do i figure out what’s too far and what isnt?
- Is a CFD account the best to use for Swing Trading or should i be using an Investing account?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, really struggling to get my head round this
