    Heard about Robinhood last day. It looks promising. I am from another part of the world and I started trading in another stock exchange using another broker. :)

    Stock exchange has its own risk. Less riskier than Forex if I say. I am just a newbie obviously, but been reading reading reading all day everyday collecting all infos so that my trades doesnt go wrong.

    You might be making others lose the $1000 they are investing.

    Yeah I'd only suggest this to people who have $1,000 of disposable income they can play around with.

    That makes sense.

    All the money I invested in Share Market is what I can afford to lose. Things can happen anytime.

    I'd be interested in this. That Robinhood site appears to be US only or am I reading it wrong ?

    Never heard of Robin Hood until now - looks cool.
    They appear to have different sections - UK, US, Global. I'll try signing up as a Canadian and see if they accept it.

    I'd be interested in doing this though, never actively played with the market, just bought into some things here and there).
