I am planning to join a British uni for my post graduate studies in Sept 09. I am also an avid stocks and derivatives trader.
I wanted to know if a person is in UK with a student visa, is he allowed to trade in UK stock exchanges especially some of these interesting products like SPREAD BETTING ?
Is there any website where I can get a demo account to try out spread betting using virtual money.
I use a ETX capital - they let you open a demo account (easy to set up)with a virtual £20k which you can reset when it all goes wrong!
There are others out there as well.
