I've read alot of your threads on various brokers, tested various demo feeds and done enough reading to make my head spin. Until I feel comfortable with a broker, I don't plan on putting any of my heavy money into things, so I plan on starting out with a mini-account. I mostly want to see how the brokers live service compares to the demo service (i've heard enough horror stories!) One other thing to consider... I am canadian, so funding accounts is a bit more difficult (wire transfers are pricey up here) Any recommendations? I'm leaning towards forex.com/gain capital, but I haven't seen too many postings about them. Any help anyone can give is great!
