I use Plus 500 and set up a demo account to try out on how their system works. Honestly speaking, you can earn money out of it with the correct skills. No issue so far but i would suggest Etoro as it is not as complicated as Plus 500.
Correct me if i am wrong, but if you are to invest in real estate, I would not recommend you to invest in a house but rather into stocks, fx or other low kinds of investments. Reasons being: 1. You are a beginner in investing 2. Real estate are not as easy as you think. After trading basic investments, then move on to real estate and meanwhile do read up. Be it books or e-books
