What would you guys recommend to a newbie (based in the UK)?

1) Which Broker to use?

2) What Software to use? (Will an average PC be okay or do you need something special?)

3) Which Books/Courses to read?

4) What is the minimum amount of money needed to start trading with?

Is there anything else that is required (apart from talent and determination lol)?

Your first question should be what will you trade!

Trade through a remote prop firm.

Takion.

3) Which Books/Courses to read?
I've never bought any books are courses. They're all scams and/or full of information you can find for free on the internet.

4) What is the minimum amount of money needed to start trading with?
I'd say $10,000 if you are trading as a hobby, $100K+ for income. But that's my view.

Ignore the noise. Along the way there will be people trying to "correct" you. Whether saying your method is garbage, you should read _____ if you really want to be good, etc. Just remember, these guys are failing just like you. Do what feels right to you. Don't worry what anybody else says to you unless they're actually a professional.
