Smile Help for New-Comer please :)

Hi guys,
Im 19 years old from London and im extremely interested in the trading industry.
I was wondering how would you recommend I should get into it as I do not have many grades as my A level results are B,U,C in Media,English,Theatre studies.
I understand it will be a very steep road but Im willing to take that on as Im so interested in trading.
If it is unlikely for me to get some sort of training or apprenticeship is there any sources I can look at which would be good for me to start?
I understand some of you will probably tell me its not the right career for me because of my grades but im pretty determined I can learn, any help is good help!

Thanks alot guys!

I can't speak for everyone, nor anyone outside the states, but school in general here is pretty worthless for anything dealing with money. I'm in my last year as a Finance Major and the first class that talked about trading stocks was last semester. (And all the information was not helpful)

The best bet is to do independent research on your own. Stay around here, pick up some books (everyone has a favorite), and most importantly paper trade. That's trading for real but without actually using money. You can find a website to operate it like invoost or wall street survivor, or just keep a journal on your own.

Watch the market every day, keep up on economic news, just immerse yourself in general.

Hi Reece,
Welcome to the site.

Check out the first two threads in my signature (below) - they will provide an introduction into the subject. After that, take a look at the Trading FAQs forum: these two threads in particular will go a long way towards answering your questions:
How Do I get a Job Trading?
Can You Recommend a Mentor, Coach or Trading Course?
Hope that helps - just shout if you've any questions or if anything is unclear.
Tim.

Hi priyan- for starting level you can make a better option by trading on Forex. but first of all i would suggest that you should try the demo version. if you find yourself capable enough then it would help you in longer.

watch some traders online how they trade- get their startegies.
