I do not have any numbers to show.off. If one has a huge pile of money to invest then by all means go for investing real estate, farming or, dividends. I would do that. But unless one already has a fortune then it goes down to the percentage game, and by accumulating roll by small absolute increments. Of course one should not forget the money management!
Somebody made a remark about ESMA. I would go for a broker that allows nonstandard lot sizes and try with that - thats what I am going for. I rarely use leverage greater than 10, anyways.
I'm still learning.
