      That is really up to you. If you were a constant winner at the previous level, I would buy-in for $5. If you're a winning player being a little bit deeper is a good thing.

      But you can always start out with $4 and win a bit first of course.

      I would buy in for $4 until Im comfortable at this level(not scared) and then buy in for $5.

      yes then I'd go for the $4 too :) . You'll also be more familiar with nl4 when you've won the $20.
      (so what TheBrood said)

      I may move fro NL2 to NL5 soon.

      I think this is a helpful tip.... Don't think in terms of money, think in terms of units, in blinds and BIs.

      Assuming you have 50BI for NL2, losing $2 is one BI, same as losing $5 at NL5, you are still only losing 1 unit out of 50, as you will often be able to win individual units of $5.

      Definitely don't play scared money, when you raise, reraise and bet, think again in terms of multiples of blinds, just scaled directly in proportion compared to the next limit down.
