Online market trading

Online market trading
The historically hard-to-break world of investing in stock markets and currencies has been cracked wide open. Today there is no need to be a fat cat or fund the yachts of Wolf of Wall Street style stock brokers. You can do it all yourself with the help of online market trading platforms.

Having spent many hours researching this new opportunity, I've been experimenting with the two biggest platforms: Plus500 and eToro.com. Both offer free practice accounts.

Overall I prefer eToro with over 8 million users worldwide. It has been featured in a BBC 2 documentary "Traders: Millions by the Minute" and recently began sponsoring several Premier League football clubs.

One of the best things on eToro is the CopyTrader feature. This lets you literally see, follow and copy the investments of other top performing traders.

Follow George's complete guide to trading on eToro to learn more. I think $200 is a good amount to get the most out of the learning curve by trying out a few different markets. If nothing else you'll learn a great deal about various investments and industries.

Please be aware that all trading involves risk. 76%-80.6% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with these providers. You should consider whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. This content is for educational purposes only and is not investment advice.
