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.
