I have £200 to play with, can I invest it in anything?Watch
Fixed-term savings account - better rate of interest, but no benefit if the base rate goes up.
Funds of various types - can help you diversify, might be good if you only have £200, but can still go down as well as up.
Shares - Can do very well if you pick well and buy at the right time. If you pick badly, you could lose out badly. If you buy at the wrong time, you might lose out or might just suffer a temporary setback while the price rises again.
I'm sure there's other stuff too, but that's off the top of my head.
If I were you, I would stick it in a fund at the share centre.
Oh or MBing, as someone said.
you can buy premium bonds, there's a chance of a £1m jackpot every month! it's like playing the lottery but you get your money back whenever you want.
follow the guys link above
also theres a thread on it too
made about £125 so far
Matched betting is a good way to start as others have said. Probably the best return on your money you can make.
Placed £1400 in bets this morning, will be sitting on £50 profit this afternoon...
