    Hi,
    so I'm sitting my GCSE's this year and am fascinated by the world of finance and stock market, I do a lot of paper trading in my spare time and wanted to know if anyone knew of a trading platform where you can trade under 18?

    Thanks in adveanced

    No, need to be 18.

    If you like finance, read up on Warren Buffett and Peter Lynch

    When I was 16 I signed up with Hargreves Lansdown; I didn't have much success as it was just £200 to try out the stock market trading. I didn't have any problems getting a Fund and Share account albeit I did exaggerate my age a tiny bit (by 2 years).

    You can give HL a try but I wouldn't be surprised if their sign up process has changed in terms of identification.

    A few others:

    - Get Stocks
    - The Share Centre

    Good luck

    That's very good. You must have been very lucky. I would be hesitant to assume you will continue with such gains.

    Yeah that's what I am going to do this summer, but was curious to see if there was another way.
