    • Hi

      Well there are trading platforms online that allows you to invest in options, commodities and foreign currencies at a margin, meaning that for example, if you have say $1,000 to invest, you can trade at a margin of up to 20 to 50 times, so you can use the $1,000 and trade up to $20,000 and $50,000. Anything profits you make on the $20,000 to $50,000 is your profits when you liquidate the investment and close out your position, and you just pay back the margin.

    • And if you lose money on the borrowed investments, you are liable for the whole loss. If you have no money to repay, you get sued and go bankrupt.

    • As any investor would know, it's about risk management and studies.

      1) Don't invest cause you heard someone said it was a good buy. Study thoroughly any one asset before buying the asset. Simply put, even if in the short-term prices fluctuates and price falls, in the long-term prices will recover and even move up, if the fundamentals of the Company remains strong and does not change.

      2) Be wary of market sentiments as it reflect irrational investors' behaviour. Even the best Company's share prices falls because irrational investors starts selling due to the perceived risk in the share market, even though the fundamentals remains. Buy at the right time.

      3) Manage your risk by selling put options or keeping money in Companies with a recession proof business such as consumer staples or gold miners.

    • A lot of traders are trading with no money. 

      Basically in Singapore, you have a three-day period before you need to pay the stock. It work like this: 

      Day 1: price is 650 cents, you buy 30 lots  = $19,500

      Day 2: price is 652 cents, you hold

      Day 3: price is 655 cents, you sell 30 lots = $19650.

      The gain is $100 (exclude trading fees)

      You need to pay up on the third day, but you have already sell the stocks, so you gain $100 dollars without having real money to invest.

      The above is a 3-day trade. Some people do a 1-day trade. Others, you can also borrow money from the broker firm to trade,then you need to pay up within 20 days.

      Trading and investments are two different things. The former is a job; the later is a investment.

    • You can't trade or invest with no money. Don't use real money first when you don't know anything about investing. Learn the necessary skills first. There is no shortcut to success and beware of get rich quick schemes which promise that trading and investing can make you money very easily. The truth is people take years to learn these skills and it takes a lot of hard work and practice just like any other profession.
