I am very new to trading (never traded in my life), and I really want to get into it. I know this should probably be posted somewhere else, but I figure there must be plenty of you who use Mac's and have had to do what I need to do. I created an account on SureTrader and I am trying to use the demo before I start trading with actual money. The problem I am having is apparently no brokers have their platforms set up for Mac computers, so you have to download an app that will allow you to work like you're on a PC.
I have found one called VMware Fusion which seems like the best one, however, since I am a little technically challenged I cannot figure out how to install it. I downloaded it, but then it wants me to download my operating system on the app. I am unsure how to do this because I bought this Mac a few months ago and the OS X Yosemite was already installed on it, so I don't have a disc to use in order to install the OS X onto the app which is what most youtube videos and message boards online say to do.
Is there anybody out there who understands the problem I am having and can walk me through how to get this app going so that I can start practicing and learn how to trade?
