re: Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone. My name is Alex and I am currently at Durham University. Although I have followed this forum and discussions for quite a while, I haven't contributed much because I am currently trying to learn by reading books/papertrading and practising on a small account.

I am currently doing a dissertation in Social Science (non finance related) although based on some observations from internships I have previously had. I was wondering if anyone who has ever worked in Financial Services (I understand most people here trade for themselves) could answer the following quick questionnaire. It won't take longer than 10 minutes and its mostly basic yes/no answers - I need to get some binary data to analyse, I would be very grateful!

Here is the link:

Thank you very much!

re: Introduce Yourself

Hello all!

Shortly after coming in London some time ago, while browsing through some old books in a charity shop, I found a book called "The Alchemy of Finance" (do I need to name its author?) and got interested in making money in financial markets. Easy to say but better back to the ground...

The reality is that I am only about to start yet. I have some background knowledge which could be hopefully useful for setting up trading - some good overview of IT (Linux, databases, Python scripting, FIX Protocol and some others) and accounting (which could possibly help with analysing shares), so at least I can more easily handle the technical part.

I would like to combine a longer term portfolio of shares/ETFs/ETCs with daily traded CFDs, at least this is my initial view. So far I have been going to seminars, viewing historical data, reading various resources and practising with demo accounts. I have also opened a real account with Trade500plus but that was probably not quite wise as I have now discovered many negative reviews online and even warnings from Cyprus' and Belize's financial authorities about this broker. It will be probably better to look somewhere else. Yesterday I applied for an account with GFTUK but now I read so many negative reviews about them as well.

So I guess I need another broker. The selection will not be too wide, if any at all, because I am ready to start with something between only £500 and £1000. I do not aim for high leverage and will prefer minimising riscs, perhaps would hold a Gold ETF/ETC and occasionally short a Gold CFD at the times of price falls I observe almost everyday afternoon when North America begins their morning trading.

Maybe later I will be able to develop algorithmic trading and am preparing for it, but for now I am where I am - just looking for a (probably CFD) broker.

Thank you for reading my introduction and I will be happy to contribute to this forum with anything (from the little) I know.
