I wouldn't bother.

The liquidity on CFDs is really low - but more importantly - these CFDs are artificial products rather than true derivatives that move purely based on order flow.

Like Forex - Prices can be set by the issuer of the product to prevent arb trades.

So trade the CFDs - but use order flow from the futures markets. You'll make much better decisions.

The title of this thread is "CFD/Depth and sales platform, help wanted" but am I correct to assume that these two items can never be found together and that this is for a reason?

Also are you suggesting to scalp via market data from one platform (i.e. Sierra DOM) and then place the CFD orders on another live platform? would this work?
