There are many brokers and platforms offering competitive and lucrative trading opportunities for small investors and day-traders and the persistent question is - 'How to choose the best broker?'.
You definitely want to trade with the big brokers. These are the ones who have been 'on the scene' for a longer time and have a large number of clients. Besides having a reputable history, big brokers also provide substantial liquidity pools which ensure that traders will get paid even if they trade big money or if they achieve amazing winnings.
Nowadays, almost all top-tier brokers offer free demo accounts for their clients. Demo accounts are used to learn how to trade and test your trading skills before switching to trading with real money.
