    Try, they have been around for some time, you can trade initially at a penny a point (others required higher bets per point) and they have some training material to get you started.
    Free currency charts and share prices, etc. are available at your disposal too.

It works exactly the same as a real investor account, making the transition from just playing , to doing it for real, nice and easy.

    Cmcmarkets, they are the one I use and they are good!
    what you need to look for are:
    real time quotes
    low spread (commission)
    real time news update
    good indicators database
    good charting software
    and last but not least : a good customer service team!
    You can find all these feature free at cmcmarkets..they are UK based.
    Good luck

    It depends on your age, but the strategy is essentially the same, regardless of where you live. If you are young, you should have a mix of long term and short term investments, but mostly long term investments. The investments should be spread throughout the market so that if one company has trouble, you don’t get „hurt”. Talk with a financial adviser on how to do this.
    The older you get, the more you want to move from longer to shorter term investments. For example, when you are moving into retirement, you still would want to have some money in long term investments for 20 years down the line, but still have some money invested for more immediate availability (because you need it for retirement.)

    I personally would recommend finspreads
    you can initially trade for 1 penny a point if you join there „trading academy” and they send you a folder to teach you the basics
    customer services seem A1 too so I would definately recommend them

    You can make huge losses spreadbetting – losses are unlimited in many cases –
    Stick to the GGs or the lottery if you want to gamble !

    Have you considered trading in FOREX (international currency exchange) instead of options or spread betting?
    In forex, the same $500.00 lets you trade $50,000 worth of currency and only 5 major currency pairs to choose from and no trading commissions.
    I am making about 20% per month trading forex. There is even software available that does it all for you
    For more information go to and check it out.
