Before I start writing about the trading room, I would like to remind everyone that you should not buy/sell any stocks mentioined here without due diligence. This is for educational purposes only.
For the trading room I will set aside $10,000 as my initial stake which should be good enough to trade properly and which is reasonable amount to start with if you are to trade/invest. $5,000 could still be okay but there will be no room for error. If you don't have atleast $5k for trading, that what are you doing browsing the internet. You should be out there flipping burgers, cutting lawns and doing whatever to save up and someday maybe you can start trading too.
Because the starting amount is not big enough to take on high priced stocks, I will limit my focus to stocks within the $10-$50 price range with atleast $.75 daily price range average.
Starting Capital = $10,000
Buying Power = $20,000 (with margin)
