support for CFD
Here in Australia we have access to CFD's via the IB platform .

I would like to see this instrument supported in APM.   Orders are placed using the underlying symbol however they are of type CFD rather than STK.

One possible issue could  be that the symbol IB use in its reporting ( and maybe API) has the suffix "n" to signify its a CFD 

eg   IBM  underlying   IBMn is CFD 

so when placing an order we use IBM CFD  but the API might return IBMn as the executed symbol.  Not sure on this as I don't have much knowledge of the API but I do see the suffix used in their flex reports 

CFD's are used to overcome margin restrictions and provide leverage greater than REG-T so many people use them
Thanks for the suggestion. We will consider this for the future.
