Hello, (Skip to the last paragraph for the question!)
I'm new to this forum, and unfortunately have never been a crawler, but I've spent the last 4 hours reading around and decided this is one hell of a good resource, so I'm going to get involved!
A bit about myself: I've been a BA for 3 years and taken over 3 companies (for my employer), and prepared 2 for their IPO after my BA role. I've completed my Commerce degree with International Business & Trade, Finance, and Financial Planning, but considering FP is shot to hell, I didn't graduate, and instead am studying my CPA requirements so I can dump my FP Major and graduate mid next year with Accounting instead.
This is going to require a lot of study considering my entire course previously was equities and investment analytic's, and accounting is, well far from it. So all up I have an additional 8 subjects to complete between now and May/June next year (its easy to pass, but I intend to pass as well as I can, so it won't be a walk over ).
So between looking for a job with a Business Consulting or Accounting Firm, I've decided since I have some spare time, and some studies will loosely interrelate, I'd start learning as much as I can on CFD trading.
I have a lot of equities books on order and have some from my Finance studies, but was wondering if anyone can recommend any that are related more to actually using software and participating in markets? Something that is more real?
P.S. I've registered for a Demo account with CMC Markets, so will have a play around on that for a while.
