I was hoping to get some advice on brokers/software.
I want to open a trading account for a few thousand dollars. I have a short term horizon - days-weeks and not months/years. I plan to be active, and so low commissions/fast execution are a must
I'm interested in stocks, futures and forex, and somewhat on derivatives. I am looking for a platform that provides access to all of these. I am also very interested in technical analysis and the trading system's type of approach.
I've tried paper trading and those trading games, but i think its time to just jump into the real thing. I dont mind losing money, as long as I learn something in the process.
Can the people of ASF provide some advice or pointers on where i should start? Are micro accounts something i should look into? What broker/software should I use? Will they provide access to international markets or ASX only? etc
