I am very much happy with Marketiva except one thing and i.e that they have a 5 min. policy for a position and any accoint which have more than 200 shrot positions in a week get's suspension and I usually am suspended for 2 weeks in a month. So that mean that I sually trade just for 2 weeks on makretiva.
yes marketiva has a demo account with starting capital of 10k virtual money...their trading platform is simplified and good for newbies....mt4 and VT have more sophisticated indicators....the one thing i like most about marketiva is that it is very easy to understand including money transfer to/from e-gold...live support is great also....but i'd strongly reccomend to try it out not to just ask about it...then you'll find out yourself...you'll get a 5 usd real money also.
