Many brokers will allow you to open an account with as little as $200.
We don't suggest this. Undercapitalization is actually a risk factor that we warn against in Lesson 3.
If you have little or no money to start with, you can open a demo trading account that simulates a real trading environment (just with fake money). A demo account allows you to practice the skill of making money in the market without risking a cent of your hard-earned cash.
When you are confident in your ability to use the software and apply your strategies, we recommend starting your live account with at least $1,000 USD (or equivalent).
If funds are tight, our community will teach, share, inspire and guide you toward new and creative methods of "raising trading capital" by adding value or providing a service via positive sum online business.
