The LTC®3886(http://www.linear.com/product/LTC3886) is a High Voltage dual, PolyPhase DC/DC synchronous step-down switching regulator controller with PMBus compliant serial interface. It uses a constant frequency, current mode architecture with programmable loop compensation for excellent transient response and output regulation. Each PWM channel can produce output voltages from 0.5V to 13.2V and has a maximum input of 60V. Up to three LTC3886s can operate in parallel for 2-, 3-, 4-, or 6-phase operation.
LTC3886 system configuration and monitoring is supported by the LTpowerPlay™ software tool. The device’s serial interface can be used to read back input voltage, output voltage and current, temperature and fault status. A wide range of operating parameters can be set via the digital interface or stored in internal EEPROM for autonomous operation. Switching frequency and phase, output voltage and device address can also be programmed using external configuration resistors.
Trading stocks typically have the lowest fees on eToro, which is one reason why I recommend you stick to this market when starting out.
All trades charge both a spread and daily rollover fees.
It really comes down to individual trading strategies and preference. But to give you an idea, I tend to hold on to stocks for a minimum of 6 months and all other trades tend to have an average duration of about two-three weeks.
A final word on over-trading.
This is a point that I want to expand on a little more, specifically in relation to copying other traders. Below is a screenshot of my equity chart over six months. The red line shows the number of people copying me.
