After several years trading with virtual accounts now the time has come to invest some of my hard earned cash. I am seeking advice from you guys for the best method for me to trade. My account will be small, around $1700, trading a wide range of stocks - I don't trade stock indicies, bonds or commodities only single shares and currencies. My virtual accounts are with spread betting firms as these provide the platform to put into practice my theory, which is now consistantly positive even with the negative spread payout on every trade. I generally cut losses quick and let the winners run which is working for me. I do scalp occassionally on big moves although this is rare. With the small account size I would require leverage. It would be greatly appreciated if you could point me in the right direction of a firm which could cater my needs. Will I keep my bottle? We'll soon see! Playinforkeeps.
