I chat on another forum and we get a lot of people who do post to dileberatly wind people up so I know where you are coming form.
I have gotten the trading bug by playing the fantasy bug, I dont want to start invewsting for rel until I have a full understanding of what I am doing. At the moment you could say that I know absolutly nothing about watching the markets so it will be a while before I go for it for real.
BUT I really want to have a go and understand it. I am trying to get to grips withthe candle type graph at the monent, trying to understand that at the moment is frying my brain...
It is amazing to see hwo much you can make and lose in just one afternoon, I think you really need good nerves to take the plunge.
I am going to start by watching the Major FTSE as you ahve said and just see what happens to them and see how you are meant to anaylise things. At the moment I am not very good at the selling bit, ie when to do it.
Should you buy and sell in a day or simply keep your nerves and hold onto them for longer, so if that is a lame question but I think it counts towards the basic.
Thank you for your reply and I look forward to maybe picking your brains a bit in the future if that is ok?
