I posted this earlier but with an unclear post title - maybe mods could delete the other thread I created?
I'm just starting to look into investing and am trying out some demo accounts, IGMarkets being my first try. Is there anyone else here playing round with this thing? How are you going? Am I to understand that the "margin" represents the percentage of my overall money that is in an open position, and that will have to be paid back to the broker? Also, I have questions about the speed with which buys and sells are executed without direct access software, etc.
Apologies if all the terms are wrong but this is all new to me, so it's Investment 101 stuff I'm looking for.
Thanks in advance
