Hi Monarch, and welcome to trade2win.
I agree with what ChartMan says, but perhaps you can elaborate a little on your trading aspirations. Such as, are you currently short-term trading and looking to day trade, or are you virtually starting from scratch?
There are, basically, three ways of day trading - using spread betting, contracts for difference (CFDs), and money (with or without margin). They all have their benefits, and their risks - and some have much larger risks to your wealth than others.
Do you have, or are you going to be getting, some real-time software? In the chat room most people seem to use AIQ real time, as this can be used for both UK and US exchanges, but all other real-time programs have their followers, and some use more than one program.
There are a whole gang of us in the chat room (20-30 people) during the day, so please feel free to pop in and experience day trading at first hand.
All the day trading books I have are US ones, which I just adapt for the UK (which is a much much slower market anyway). Net-Trading, by Alpesh B Patel, is probably the nearest I know of which covers UK day trading, as well as US stuff.
Hope this helps.
