A Nebie question

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by Holycow2012, Jul 1, 2012.

  1. I am looking to start trading stocks, but as being a total newbie in stocks and knowing from reading other threads what this business is all about I know that i will lose all if I start without getting some experience and plan and practice for some time. 6-12 months minimum from what i already know.
    Meanwhile been trying to get myself some serious demo platform like Realtick with Level II, alarms and multiple windows options and it looks like they all are available only for few days. Kind of test driving with brokers assuming I just need to test drive and then open account and lose my money with them.
    I wonder, is there free unlimited time wise demos of Real Tick and the like platforms to practice with paper money?
    No thinkorswim like platforms as I find it horrible for day trading both spread and execution.
    Any helpful advice will be appreciated.
  2. You can check out thinkorswim or options express you can open free accounts and paper trade live on a demo account. Don't be concerned with level ll I think it is a waste of time, you don't need it to trade. What software do you use to trade.

    I understand that you don't want to use ThinkorSwim but they do offer Level II quotes, along with a tab called active trader which let's you buy and sell with one click, eliminating the need to confirm. Their commissions are a bit high at $9.99 per trade but they do offer a solid platform with many tools.

    Starting out focus on being a good trader, don't get caught up in the whole I need to find the best platform in the world to be the best trader I can be mentality. In the end a good solid trader can do good in any platform while a bad trader will blow out in the best platform ever.
  4. are you English? or Australian? Welcome mate! (or should I say Matie?) Go to the American thread, where boys learn how to talk like men.

    speaking of baseball, are you going to watch the break?

    There will be a lot of Staries there.

    Who is your favorite starie?

    otherwise, I was at the club this weekend. There were a lot of nice chickies there.

    If you ever get to Indiana stop by and see me and my friendies and I will put some ribbies on the grilly for you.

    Nothing wrong with being a newbie. we all started out that way. Once you get 3000 posties under your belt you can become an oldie.

    Just remember, always be a goodie.
  5. You forgot to welcome him to the mickey mouse club.
  6. yeah well, we Americans are not too original. Almost every word we learned was first either English, Irish, or Italilian.

    But no self respecting American would refer to himself as a (I hate to even type the word) "Newbie" like a common faggot from Britain. We whooped their ass in 76 and 1812 and will do it again if they keep mouthing off to us.

    True, they come up with the words, but we figure out how to pronounce them the American way.

    I have no trouble with calling a newbie a Bee Man, at least that preserves some of the American Dignity you kids have lost ever since the governmment started giving you student loans.

    And that aint all you have lost.
  7. That would be a B man
    as opposed to an A man
  8. How are the chickies in Indiana?
  9. not too goodie
  10. as a matter of fact, no matter where else in the world you live, I would not reccommend moving here for the women or the weather.
