I was wondering whether it would be possible to begin trading equities if I only had $1,500? This would be geared more for learning purposes and I am willing to lose it all. - I would trade volatile stocks from NASDAQ and S&P 500. - I am willing to trade IPOs. - I would obviously only be allowed to be on the buy side. - Commissions would amount to a total of $10 to buy and sell ($5 each). -I am willing to trade the $1,500 on each trade (with a stop lose of course Is a goal of making $50 per day realistic after commissions? Futhermore, is it possible to make small gains and slowly build up capital or are the initial funds too limited to make any significant growth?
