“Investing, and trading requires millions of dollars to be pumped”—is a common belief among people. This is simply not the case. We live in an age where almost anyone can start trading, and even if you don’t have a lot to invest. However, if you are a newbie, you should learn more about the downfall trends, and some techniques to reduce losses. One tip that a lot of people stick to is a one percent risk rule.
Even if you have a higher trading goal, its always good to stay on the safer side with lower investment. Trading small figures means that you don’t have the same buffer. Simply put, people who are going into investing with a huge amount of money can mitigate against these mistakes, and even swallow some losses to start with but keep trading, or wait for stocks to recover.
Trading with smaller amounts is also quite freeing in some ways, and the risks are arguably less. There are certain strategies you can take up when trading with small amounts in order to try and get ahead.
Moreover, trade using leverages that require about 15% of the value of the trade to be provided in cash. If you were to trade directly with individual stocks and shares you might have to pay 30% of the value in cash upfront. Effectively, you can play in a bigger league than you would be able to if you weren’t using leverage.
You might assume that if you are getting started with less money, then it is a free reign to take risks, and this is true for some investors who want to go with this high-risk (potentially high-reward) strategy. So, its always advisable to keep it low, unless and until you are ready to enter the big game mode.
