    Hi,

    I'll be going to a target uni in the next academic year, I've been trading on "fake/demo" accounts (libertex...) and making profit.
    Does any of this experience would be valuable to my CV? Or should I move to real money? If yes ( I wanted to move to real money soon anyway) what platform/website would you recommend using/what are you currently using?
    I'll be applying for SW in banks and might have a week or two in a small PE firm.

    thanks !

    Yes even virtual is good but mostly real funds are favoured even if you lose capital its fine you can twist it to make it sound good. I use IG fantastic broker and great to demo trade first
