    I am keeping my money in bank and did not decide to bond the money for like 3 years to get lousy 2 % interest.

    They don't give me the interest that will be same or higher then inflation rate.

    I was thinking of buying stock. Buying some Apple, Google stock and then resale after it grows enough

    How do you invest

    Another thing was buying flat or two and rent it out, that is why I did not bond my money for long time, so for the past few years I am not getting almost any interest, I would say I get 0.5 % per year and that pisses me off tremendously

    If you're going to be putting money into stocks, make sure you have a healthy sum in your bank account for everything else. Buying stock does not replace a bank account.
    However, I'm definitely not telling you to NOT invest in anything - I'm just saying to be careful. The stock market is wild and vicious beast. I love it though.

    buy assets like gold or land/house

    if u buy house, make sure u can rent and make some $$ monthly. Remember that buy a good house is better than cheap one

    and, i dont think u should buy apple or google share as they are too high at this moment :) find mid cap to make huge profit !!!

    Buying and renting a house is easier said than done. I do this with a few rental properties, and honestly, it's the worst mistake I've ever made. People assume your tenants will pay rent and not destroy the property. They never pay rent, and always destroy the property.


    GOOG is a good buy right now. Even though it's at an all time high. It's a great company.

    I trade stocks almost daily but have found a better ROI when I invest in myself and my own projects.

    Gold is good as you are not necessarily 'betting on Gold'. You are better against your currency - which always inflates. Over the long term it wont give you massive returns but defo better than a bank who can take your £ any time.

    You don't have to buy physical gold. You can buy a derivative like gold futures contract (GC) or GLD (an ETF play).

    But how are you sure that yuo will not loose money due to inflation even if ou buy gold?

    The gold changes price too right all the time?

    So where are you from guys? Can you buy gold in European countries?

    so are you loosing money?

    I stay now in a house pay the fat bitch 500 eur each month, she aint paying no taes, I aint broken anything beside few dishes, so she earns like 6000 eur per year. She pays electricity which is really low and cleaner, so she must pack at least 5k per year.

    The bitch is building a new house near this house, brand new. And she has two other places. So she must get over 12k just from renting each year, she disgusts me.
    I think buying flats and renting them is the way to go.

    if you have good amount of money then go with real estate rather than investing in stocks unless you have pretty much knowledge of stocks...

    When you buy the gold you put it in a holdings account where the gold is kept. This will be provided by the people you buy the gold off.

    Gold has not been performing well the last 12 months but has been performing well over the last 20+ years. Its a long term investment as currency; pounds, dollars, euro etc will always loose value.

    Aim for long term, not short term. Also I don't think Apple is your best choice at the moment.

    Ok I talked with my bank, they offer gold

    but the percentage is so high

    If you buy 1 gram, and then sale it, you loose 42%

    If you buy 250 g the percentage is around 4%

    Is that a good value?

    I traded options for a while it was very exciting and very stressful. It was hard to keep the emotions at bay.
    Why don't you start paper trading first (virtual stock trading) I was doing it with stockcharts.com for a while. Don't know if they still do it though. It gets competitive with other people and will give you the same thrill
