    Ello ello ello...

    Lets say somebody is looking to invest a sum of money, between 10-20K, in a high interest investment/saving scheme(s), both medium and short term options, relatively high and low risk options, which would you suggest a person to consider in more depth?

    Ideally, a mix of options that are both easy access to retrieve the invested money back, as well as the more long term, harder to access again options.


    What say you?

    GRAZIE

    You can't really have high return and low risk. They are the opposite sides of the scale.

    The higher the expected return the greater the risk.

    Mutual funds are probably the best bet for what you are looking for.

    Do you understand the basics of investing? Try understand how it works first before taking anyone's advice.

    I was referring to options of both risk propensities. I'm all about spreading the investment, not keeping it all in one basket ;]

    Will certainly look into mutual funds =]

    To a larger degree than not, I do yes.

    I'm simply asking for more experienced views as anecdotal pointers, i'm not silly enough to wholeheartedly take on dogma willy nilly.

    I will verify and research regardless, and in more depth as per recommendations.

    Thankkkkk youuuuuuuuu =]

    Mutual funds are the best for a low to modest return. If you want big money you need to bet on high risk. I would ask a financial adviser, in the bank, about your options for better guidance than in a forum like this.


    Mutual funds are looking like a popular option- certainly worth more research there. On it icon_cool.gif

    Danke!

    Based on your criteria, I'd say get into the loan sharking business. icon_cool.gif

    Oops. I just realized you're in the UK. I was going to suggest saving up more cash and possibly flip houses. But I have no idea what real estate is like over there.

    Yh, definitely the longer term plan. However, would need to double the current lump sum first. Plus, learn how to flip houses. All in good time; getting there =D

    hugely negative, you're gonna get screwed by pros in New York, London, Chicago, Tokyo, Frankfort and Toronto - they know all the strike prices and time frames

    futures are "safer" but still a huge risk and you need more cash up front - I've traded them all but that was 20 years ago before HFT

    if you're gonna start speculatively trading stock options, 95% probability you get ass raped

    Will certainly look more into futures.

    What are your views on specifically designed trading software? Any experience with that?

    Cool! The reason for my question is because it's important you state what your overall financial goals are. I mean, are you investing for your retirement? Or are you wanting to save on buying a home, a vacation, etc? Stating a goal will determine which investment vehicles are best for you. Otherwise, if the vehicle doesn't match the goal, then you stand to either lose or not make any $$ at all.

    Good luck to you!

    Ah fair doos =]

    Hmmm, i'm looking to make the most amount of money in the least amount of time possible. I'd like to have enough to buy a property to flip within the next three-five years. I'd need to double/triple the current capital amount to do so.

    I think my best option is likely going to be to use the bulk of that money to start my own businesses, and make more significant and faster profits that way, primarily.

    However, depending on the rates of return other options are most likely to yield, i'd carefully consider and then decide whether they too were right for me to invest in or not.
