Our lowest level of funding is $2,500 for those who just want to get their feet wet and try our services. However, you should also see if a higher level of funding of your risk capital will allow you to achieve lower level of commissions.
Trading More? Pay Less. Simple.Â
Not sure how much you trade? That is fine.
Here are some guide lines:
Typical day trader trade about 1% (sometimes less) as a percentage of his/her account. For example, if you start with $5,000, you would trade up to 50 Round Turns (100 sides) per month. More experienced and successful traders crank up higher numbers but you should trade at your own pace. Do not trade more just to archive lower commissions. Methodology is more important than anything when you trade.
If we don't have your platform, youÂ don'tÂ need it.Â
Most trading platforms perform basic trading functions that most traders look for. If you are a beginner trader, go with one of the free platforms.Â If there are specific features you after, explore what platforms may have them.Â There are platforms that have "addons" while others provide the same feature as far as their natives features.Don't buy into more "magical" indicators, they will not make you a better trader and will not grow your account.
