    Agreed - keep away from anything that isn't straight forward share trading. And even then consider them as a medium-term investment not a get rish quick scheme.

    The best way to earn a small fortune in exotic trading is by starting with a large fortune...
    I agree entirely. OP pay attention.

    Actually the best way to make a fortune is....,.with someone else's money.

    He says trading. With only 500 quid I read that as leveraged trading. I may be wrong. I hope I am wrong. Because in a leveraged situation that statistic applies. It's more than likely he'd get wiped out within a very short time. And that's not just on the movement of the market, that's on the trickery of the market maker and him f****** you on the price, spread and never missing an opportunity to stop you out on figures coming out that you'll receive with a big delay. It's a mugs game.
    Obviously he's not going to lever his 500, like how would you get that idea???

    I literally have 0 idea what you are talking about.

    Unless you mistook 'warning given' to be aimed at you. It was a reference to the warning I have the OP about leveraged trading....

    Invest in Funds through someone like Hargreaves and Lansdown to start learning about the market. To buy funds there are no trading fees. But you will of course earn less than most equities but it's safer of course.

    My last company, on me being hired my CEO offered to do a Q&A one on one sesh with me about the company (research) and industry (pure equities) and I blurted out " why don't investors just put their money in S&P index trackers instead of trying to beat the market and usually making less money?" And he was like;

    Errrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    ............errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrr......


    ................................ .ego.


    He's a very respected man in the industry.
