Please note that margin trading requires extra caution, because whilst you can realise large profits if the price moves in your favour, you risk extensive losses if the price moves against you.

Please seek independent professional financial advice if you do not understand the risks. Further, because you will be involved in investment, it is imperative that you are not only familiar with the markets but that you have obtained necessary independent investment, legal and tax advice.
