but this is a zero - sum game and i can't do anything about that.
It is NOT a zero sum game! The dow doesnt go horizontally like fx, it goes up, therefore EVERYONE who ever bought a share in the index has made a profit - no one lost money buying.

just who do you think you are buying FROM? sellers & shorts, thats who. those shares don't come out of thin air.

There's no 'trading' to be done, just buy it and hold it, and when it goes down buy some more.

3 times I've tried to sell the US markets in the last 3 months and 3 times I lost money. I've stopped selling!

I understand that your not good at trading hence the demo account, this is probably because you dont understand what it is your doing. If you took the time to research and learn before you throw more money away then it will make you a better trader and you might even be able to graduate to a real money account.

I've drawn a picture and put a link in to an explanation I gave a long time ago that no one has invalidated.
If you bought fx at the highs and sold later you would have made a loss. If you bought the index at a high you just have to hold on to make a profit. (Its worked for 100 years).

Sellers are just people who bought earlier at a lower price and are taking a profit.

Buy now and I guarantee you will make a profit.
This has been the case ever since the dow and s&p have been trading without fail 100% of the time!

I have to ask... why did you sell 3 times? Have you bought now?
