The biggest advantage  is that we can have more capital to trade,for example if you deposit $250 and the broker offers $250,you get $500 to trade.Not only can we place higher value orders,even following the rules of risk management,we also have more leeway to make mistakes.thus,we duplicate our profit,because were working with $500 but only deposited half.

Don’t trade if you don’t have time to research. Stock trading should be approached as a part-time job. Like any job, your skills will suffer if they are not frequently practiced. In this case, “practice” means reading the latest news and financial reports on companies in which you are considering investing. If you do not have time to practice, consider investing in an index fund instead, or hand your investments over to a qualified professional.

Do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. Make intelligent decisions about what you can afford to invest, and begin slowly. Once you have realized gains from one or two stocks, you can begin to reinvest those gains — which have now become your principal — into other stocks and funds.
