Hi guys

I am interested in starting up an account for trading and I wondered if people could assist in pointing me in the right direction for the training programs out there that teach people. I am aware of programs that make it seem really easy and people move to real money and get hit badly.

I am after trading software that trains you up to a point where I can start on the market and build my account up/down. I was thinking of playing with a few ££££s as a starter for the first year and seeing how that panned out.

Anyone who has experienced this themselves and made something out of it, your stories would be most appreciated.

My career path is completely not related to numbers but my uncle failed his maths O-levels 3 times and made millions back in the 90s so if he can do it anyone can! lol

Apologies if a thread like this exists already

    Thank you for your informative post.

    But the comment is spot on, bit like that well known Penguin book that always amused me, 'Relativity for the layman'

    No amount of software will make you a successful trader.

    If it was that simple, the software developer would keep it for himself, or the other outcome is that we would all be using it to become successful traders.

    Good luck, report back when you have found the holy grail of trading software fj

    I think people are being a bit harsh here. The OP is asking for "training programs out there that teach people". He is trying to learn and it would be nice if someone offered to help. Everybody starts out as a novice .

    Everyone has given him the best advice he could get.
    Don't be a fool, don't do it.
