Okay so after some facepalm worthy moments with the broker I was in contact with it turns out that my Â£500 was not sufficient to even open an account. It was however suggested to me that Forex would be a viable option if I was going to trade with such a small amount. So first things first, I'm sure you lot are reasonably aware of my skepticism about Forex but is it possible to actually make profit in your own currency with Forex? Or am I completely misguided about the whole process behind it? I would also like to ask about brokers you lot would recommend for an account my size. I'm taking a look at global futures which seems to be a decent option unless people voice unanimously otherwise. I'd also appreciate some reading material since finding anything to do with trading that's actually useful on the internet is a complete pain because it is filled with broker advertisements.
