Hi All, I need your advise on where I should start . I'm a total newbie when it comes to trading, have about 2K to play with (i.e. this is the amount of cash I can affort to loose). I'd be willing to engage in shorting stocks, but I'd have to do practice it first until I can reasonably forsee the outcome. Is there an account that I can setup and trade for practice using 'funny money'? Lastly, is there a statistic on trading that shows how many people actually loose money trading? Thanks to you all in advance for replies.
