I was attracted by Raceoption's free demo account, and the $10 minimum deposit. I practiced trading on the demo and within days understood I was ready. And so - dove in with $10. Being slightly up, I decided to make my deals larger in order to increase my profits.
As a result, I'm working so hard making trades that I took home 2nd place in the "best scalper" contest - as I made over 800 profitable trades! They gave me a $200 bonus for that, so I'm going to keep on competing in contests and trading even more.
I believe in your success! I’d advise all beginners to start with a small deposit - say $250. That way, if you immediately start off with big trades without the experience to back it up you risk blowing it all. Good luck, and thanks Raceoption for everything!
