    OPM means other people's money.

    That's an excellent way to make profits by using other people's money and it can also prove disastrous when everything goes wrong.

    I've just started trading with Dukascopy SA (Suisse).

    I'll let you people know how things go later.

    Paypal?

    Do you need a premium/business account for transferring funds to/from a broker using Paypal? I have a regular account with Paypal as I only buy things on Ebay or the net. I have never needed any type of business/premium Paypal account as I never have had to receive money.

    I read you are allowed to get x amount of 1000's going to your account and still not be premium. Being optimistic and saying I'll make a profit, would I have to upgrade my Paypal account or are these dealings classed as personal?

    My credit card is prepaid and I pay nearly 3% per transaction. Using bank transfer to Paypal and then to the broker would save this fee. I could use bank transfer direct to the broker if they accepted them, but would this remove a "protection layer" if things went sour with the broker?

    I did a titles search for Paypal but nothing there.

    I meant to quote your post in my post above. I see now there is yet another charge for using credit cards (as well as my 3% prepaid). I definitely want to use paypal. Anything else you could tell us about using them? Comsumer protection? Fees? Pros, cons? Anything would be helpful. Thanks.

    Perhaps Nancy is showing her age. Maybe when she first started trading, it was by telegraph over the translatlantic cable. :p

    OK, I'll be nice and also give a serious answer. I believe Nancy is referring to bank wire transfers. The advantage of those is that you at least have some real contact info for the place you send money to. It leaves a paper trail to follow if fraud occurs.

    Oh i see, hahaha, I didn't know that telegraphic transfer is the other name for bank wire transfer. Well, I feel like an idiot asking this kind of question here but at least I learned. =) Thanks pharaoh!
