    Whoa that's a really nice ROI, however the stock market is something I'll be avoiding. I've heard its extremely addicting :/

    Yeah I imagine its just like gambling. Very easy to get too into it... but a bit of fun none the less.

    Just like gambling, tis why I haven't touched it either. :) but congrats on the gains brother. Do it again.
    PS I also never tried cocaine for this reason, I'm know I'm the addictive type.

    You were willing to invest 300 quid into this, which means you were willing to sacrifice the 300 quid if things would've turned ugly. IMO you can reinvest the profit you've made (you've sold 'em, I guess?), but do NOT invest anything more than that. It indeed is the equivalent of gambling.

    Another thing to look into is forex. Same old, same old though, 100% speculation if you haven't been into it for years. And even then it weighs highly on speculation.

    I'm pretty sure you only invested the money you can afford to lose. Congrats, now go cash that windfall and enjoy :)

    Which site did you use if you're in the UK? Or which broker?

    It's an addicting world. They have their own niche newsletter services that are similar to WSOs in sales tactics but the market is much, much bigger. I know folks making 15k/month in stock market advice newsletters. Always, and forever, people are looking to get rich quick.

    Congrats bro. I've been meaning to dabble in the stock market for some time now. Gotta take care of some things to free up my time before I start monitoring the stock market like a hawk.

    to OP, I actually invested one time into BALTIA Airlines, there was a rumor of a new Airline coming out and I invested unfortunately the never took off so I'm hopping one day I can get lucky like you did :) What are you going to do with the money you made?

    Buy low sell high. Seems simple enough.
