hey guys, i'm completely new to trading, and haven't even started
paper trading yet. i really don't know much - i'm spending about 2 weeks doing a lot of research
and self-education. doing forex AND stocks is important to me,
because i want to START with stocks, since my startup capital is
one of the issues is that i'm a web developer,
so i only have linux computers. essentially all trading platforms run on
windows. i was able to get metatrader5 to run on linux via wine, and
noticed it was a very robust platform, and could trade STOCKS and forex,
so i'm fairly firm on using only metatrader 5, rather than another
was wondering, is WHO i should use to do my trading with. is there a broker out there who
(1) lets its clients use metatrader (2) trades STOCKS (3) trades forex
(4) has a 800$ or less minimum deposit (5) doesn't rape you with their fees??? also, i'm wondering if i need
to use a traditional online broker, or if i can use a ECN and cut out the middle man, if i'm even
asking the right question???
thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.
