Right then, I've decided to have a play on the London Stock Exchange.
I've got some spare cash floating around in my bank account, so why not. The way I see it, I'm only earning 1% interest in my current account, I'd rather have a bit of a gamble and maybe learn something in the process, than let my wonga sit there collecting dust.
Obviously I understand the risks involved, which is why I'll only be playing with £1000 to start with.
If I lose all that, then this might be a very short adventure. But I intend to learn the hard way by getting stuck in. I have to say, apart from investing a few hundred quid, a couple of years ago, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing! I understand basic concepts, but really am new to this.
