    Newbie, just heard of the idea.

    Someone like to explain to me how to do it? Just £50 at the moment, could be £500 if I start to understand and make money.

    Thank you.

      Bad idea, the broker will make a much bigger profit than you.

      Well could anyone suggest the best way to use £600 I have. I don't like it just sitting there in my bank not doing anything.

      £50 isn't enough, there is no shallow end, only a deep end. Try and set aside some money for a while that you could lose without it being a problem.

      When you realise you cant make a profit with £100,000 of play money youll realise that you may as well just go down the pub with your £50.

        It would be much quicker to burn your money, or maybe give it to a homeless man.

        In the last 3 years i've seen a few multibaggers.

        500 into 3000 is not a bad profit.

        That's not you proving me wrong that's just a lot of noise, circumspect ambition.

        You said that you can't make money from 500 quid. I think you'll find 2500 profit is making money

        Not enough money. You would need to invest at least £1000 to make it worth your time. At least. One transfer fee alone would cost you £5-£10. Before you start you'd already be down up to 20% of your money.
