Trade Sensibly: Spreadbets/CFDs/forex trading is high risk! How can you trade/invest efficiently with with low capital? What's the best trading strategy for people with low capital? If you only have GBP250 or USD300, what's the best strategy going forward? This is a very common problem; in a perfect world you have a large amount of capital to trade but fortunately these days most online brokers also accommodate small traders. But what's the best way to use this money to learn to trade? The worst you can do is to utilise as much leverage as you can and trade with the biggest trade size possible. You might have a run of good trades but on average you won't last more than 10 trades. You might double or triple your money and then lose it all or you'll lose it straightaway. That is pure gambling. What you want to do is to make the money last as long as possible to help you learn the most. How do you get the best returns in terms of education? First open an account with a broker that allows you to trade with GBP250. You want to trade a strategy that has a long time to play out. Even though I'm a day trader and I love day trading I wouldn't day trade if I were limited to a very small balance. I would look at swing trading, holding positions for multiple weeks or months and I would trade the smallest size possible. And this is what you want to do - you want to trade with real money as that means you have some skin in it and there's some meaning to your trading.

It is not possible to swing trade with a few hundred dollars or pounds in your account. You need maintenance margin to hold position overnight. The broker won't allow you to do that.

I agree with you 100% paper trading doesn't work psychologically. I enter into small swing trades $50/$60 dollars at a time, my goal is 20% to 35% returns per trade. I make 2 to 8 swing trades a week. At this stage, it's more about a consistent winning strategy than it is about the $ize of my profits. Thank for your video.

As one that did it (started with $2K account instead), I totally agree. With a small account, it is preferable to opt for swing trading. It allows you to still make money even if the entry point isn't that perfect. With day trading, it is better to enter into an already profitable setup since you don't have that much time to wait for the price action to turn favorably. For what I have experienced, losing trades tend to grow quicker than winning ones. It is tougher to hang on to winners that retrace quite a lot since retracements can potentially linger or can turn out to be major market shits that ultimately will eat away at profits. That's why making a lot of money on one trade is challenging especially if your trading size isn't that significant. That explains why risk management is at the heart of longevity in the trading world. But no matter how careful you are, the market will find a way to sting you once in while. Oftentimes, the setup is perfect and all the conditions are met but for some unknown reasons, the market does not agree with your analysis. That's why accepting to be wrong early on is one MAJOR quality to have as a trader.

How would you manage risk? In terms of Stop Loss and Take Profit, would you even use it?

Great advice, as always. But on the demo account, I don't agree. A demo is a great way to practise certain things. For example, I have used it to learn and practise shorting and figuring out the correct position sizes. And I have also found it invaluable in building self-assurance.

Love this channel! For those that like crypto, fees are minscule compared to stocks. Great way to build a small account. You can always trade another vehicle later when your account is larger

I've been trading for just over 3 years now, and in a way I disagree with this approach. If you're taking 2 or 3 trades a month, the likelihood is you'll end up placing FAR too much significance on each individual trade. You will see things happen in the markets - a certain price behaviour for instance, that you've observed 10 times over. You interpret it as significant, when in actual fact, it's not at all. It may have taken you 7 or 8 months of trading to make those observations, and feel it is a sure thing. Only when you've reached 100 - 200 or more trades, do you then realise that what you thought was a sure thing, actually isn't that significant at all. Only, it's now taken you several years to find that out. Oh, and then to compound issues, only after 3 or 4 years you'll realise that you've not been recording your trades properly (as practically nobody does to start, including myself!). IMO, far better to trade small and trade frequently to build your experience. You may be out of the game faster than you would swing trading, true. But you will have achieved critical market exposure (not market cycles), and been through the usual collection of psychological factors, in a far shorter space of time. Just my opinion, offered as an alternative view.

Oh and 10+ losers in a row can and does happen. Find that out and learn to deal with it after 5 months, or experience it in the space of 2 weeks. I'd take the latter any day personally! :)

Makes sense. I lost about 10 grand in 3 years and gave up in despair. Since I've come back to it I've managed to turn Β£200 into Β£660 in a couple of weeks by swingin' like Frank Sinatra and trying to go with the flow. I appreciate the videos, thanks and good luck.

Thank you for sharing again. I started a couple of months ago and accidentally ought gold when it was right time. Left if for a week and from a few hundred quid made a decent sum. Then burned yesterday half. Now doing your strategy and it helps. Luck is not common especially the one I’ve had. Trading is serious and can eat your money. I’m going through your videos again and again. Sounds easy when you say but hard in reality. For me at leas

Good advice. If you can't make money trading a Β£250 account what makes you think you can trading a Β£10,000 one.

Hi, I have found all of your videos very helpful, including this one, at the moment I am day trading using the minimum contracts, is this an efficient way?

Hi there, I recently discovered your channel and i am a fan of your work. I am just wondering if there is a video where you introduced yourself and talk about your trading history? Just curious to know. Thanks!

Agree, the focus should be longevity of the small account. I only trade to a max of 0.10 to manage losses, if ever there are. Than wiping out the account in just a few days or worst in just a few hours. Slowly but surely!
Jakub Valenta (8 months ago)
Yes find good entry and hold it. Β£250,- could be enough for swing trade with 0,05 contract.

Thanks for this. It's much less stressful trading this way. You learn patience, how the market works, and less exposure but more chance to catch big movements in the market.
