What do you think is a better business idea?

So. . . sort of as a part of my new year’s resolution – i am now hesitating between 2 potential ideas that i plan to develop – aside from my day job. That is:

Idea no 1: A website which charges just $1 commission for trades on complex financial instruments: Like CFDs, Forex Options, Bonds, etc.
Problems with this idea: At least a few hundred thousands to start with since even a license in Antigua and Barbuda for such thing would cost $50k + and i need also substancial capital to cover leverage. But i have just about $40k to start with and my credit rating isn’t good to hope for a bank business loan.

Idea no 2:
A professional finance software program: which tries to predict stock prices via neural networks. The same program will test strategies on historical data and calculate things that aren’t available online: Like SABR volatility or Bond option prices.
Problems: Do people really need such things? I guess most traders are cocky enough to believe that they need only a chart and a wikipedia article to become a succesfull trader?

So. . . what do you think? Any advice will be of great help!

10x and happy new year!

I have a stock trading account and I have been playing with the “d? To the negotiation?” N “for populations of about 2 for years now. I have taught? Ado certain strategies I use and I’m very c? So most? To increase my selections? soon after? s to buy an action? n. Now I’m interested in stock options. Here? est? my understanding. . . If I find a population? N currently trading at $ 30 and I think the population? N increase? 10% in the future pr? maximum, I can buy, say 100 shares at $ 30 ($ 3,000) and the expectation of an increase of 10%, or I can buy an extraordinary choice for purchase (100 shares) in a fraction? n the $ 30 – maybe $ 1 per share? n = $ 100. This extraordinary choice gives me the right to buy 100 shares at 30 d? Dollars, even if / when the price increased by 10% to $ 33. At that time, then you can buy 100 shares at $ 30 ($ 3,000) and immediately sell 100 shares at $ 33 ($ 3,300). I lose the $ 100 for the option “to buy, but I make a difference of $ 300 with a net of $ 200. I stand to lose the original $ 100 if the price does not rise, but do not have to invest a total of $ 3,000 to which is a sure profit maker.? Is this the idea b? Music of stock options?
