Funding a brokerage account is a necessary part of investing your own money. We encourage you to set up a virtual trading account immediately so you can place the trades discussed in class inside your own account to both get comfortable with the process of placing trades (removing a potential friction point caused by technology) and gain confidence in your ability to get consistent results from the markets.
