    Bear in mind that trades bear an execut1on price (typically £12.50-15) and usually stamp duty too so if the stake is £100 you will need a 25% (approx) increase in share price to break even, but even then when you sell you will be charged again.

    also bear in mind test environments in no way mimic real ones as professional quant traders will be in there way before you if there's anything to be made (yes I've worked in a prop shop).

    Proprietary trading house (they gamble their own money and tend to do very well for themselves)

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] has a good offer on at the moment:

    "You’ll be able to buy shares for only £5.95 for 3 months online. After your first 3 months you'll move onto our Active (£5.95), Frequent (£8.95) or Standard (£12.50) rate based on the amount you trade online."

    I'm purely interested in the dividend payouts, the adding share value is just a bonus
