I’m not a massive fan of share dealing, I personally prefer CFDs, if you are cash rich then shares are good because you will have the money to buy as many shares as you like but if cash flow is a bit of an issue then CFDs are better, you don’t have to put up all of the money upfront, you can put down a percentage of what you want and get the same holding as if you were buying shares plus you have no stamp duty to worry about either, they are way more cost effective.
If I was ever going to get into the world of Share Dealing I would consider most of the following;
Get a Broker
Use Market Orders
Use Trailing Stops
Use Limit Orders
And finally consider Storing Your Money between Trades
You obviously know what you are doing as you have said that you have been trading for years, I’m sure most of what I’ve written you will already know but hey someone else following the forum/thread may find it useful, hopefully!?
