Mush, for a low start you need to consider the cost of buying in, selling and other things like stamp duty. We all pick stocks with no stamp duty most of the time. If it does then your stock has to increase 1% simply to cover that. Then you have to increase to cover the dealing fees. Mine are very cheap. But if you put say 250 into one stock and your fees are 10 in and 10 out on a non stamp duty stock you need to make 20 just to cover those fees. When you get into 10000 the 20 of fees becomes so small it is barely looked at. Furthermore, if you trade in an account that is not a tax free isa, you will have to pay tax on any profit you do make. My advice is to throw your 1000 into premium bonds to start with. Set up a spreadsheet and start a phantom trading account. Give yourself stake money, and use apps such as smartstock to get a feel for following prices live that you have put in your phantom portfolio. At the point of buying or selling your phantom stocks, make very sure you are using the correct buy or sell price - learn about spread! Add in things like dealing costs (iweb is a £25 start up but then flat £5 per trade for example). Now follow, study, research, read up and learn for a year with your phantom list. You will learn about buying a stock which then has barely any trade for months and hence no price movement. You learn about the importance of reinvesting for compound growth. It might take ten years of reinvesting all gains to get to a position where you can start drawing down on capital. I started in 2007 and only started drawing down capital a couple of years ago and even then I am very tight fisted with it aiming at specific targets. Make a phantom portfolio with your stake money that you have. Any additional cash must be matched with actual savings into the premium bonds or other isa before adding to your phantom portfolio. Give yourself a year's learning and then when you take the plunge you might manage to keep your grand for a full calendar month rather than not making it past week one. It can be brutal!

Mushed, excellent advice from foot in mouth. Don't be seduced into go go stocks or get rich quick promises, there aren't any unless you are very very lucky. Remember investing isn't gambling and as fim says, always do your research. It may seem boring and tedious but reading a few books like Naked Trader will prove extremely valuable in the long run. Another I like is "Rule No 1" which is based on Warren Buffets principles. Anyway good luck whatever you do.

Looking good... Investors have placed Petrofac Ltd (POFCY) shares on watch as the Aroon Up indicator has moved above 70, indicating that there is strong upward momentum building for the shares.

mush if you can't afford to lose it don't play with it 95% of traders lose money the markets are totally unpredictable and it's a very long and expensive learning curve most of these guys have serious £ and i have always earned a great deal good luck

Unrelated.. dont throw any hate out, just a genuine question. I browse these forums regularly along with others and I see how you guys talk about making trades. If I'm completely honest you guys have serious cash to play with . I just want to know did any of you start of with literally as small as a 1000pounds. Its literally all I can afford .... Its hard to balance uni studies a Terrible full time job and trading of course. I genuinely do think the more money you have the easier it is to make but until then I need to complete my degree before I can get a decent paying salary...

I'm only seeing trade data 15 min delayed but those automatic trade volumes do look like they have increased in size quite markedly. Have we finally got computers bidding against each other? I can see the share price live and there has been a peak of 476.2 which is the largest quote I have seen so far. Looking good.
