The commission fee will kill you when investing in small amounts. If you are investing small amounts make sure to calculate how much a hit the commission will take out of your returns. Much more than a percent will be a big hole to crawl out of.

I don't feel $1000 will be enough for high returns.

Not sure what you mean by this. You can make 10% on $2.00 and 10% on $200,000. Both would qualify as a high return percentage-wise.

As well, if you are just starting out the focus is going to be more about protecting the downside, not high returns. You will make mistakes.
