I'm 16 and wanted to invest but no site allows under 18s and my parents don't know much about investing and they won't let me. Is there a way for me to invest.

use demo accounts for now, try to understand investing and define your strategy. See if you are able to get good returns on demo accounts and then consider investing real money.

No way at all then. You need to be 18 because of laws and they have to check for insider trading etc

I would suggest online gambling but its not always easy to win big. Maybe do some research about investing, educate your parents on it, try and be as persuasive as you can and then see if your parents will give you the money. But make sure you know what you're doing, have a plan ready and make a pros and cons list about what it is you want to put your investment into.
