    In that case stick it in a fund. Some providers allow you to choose your level of risk and automatically put it in a fund

    The unit price of IG markets various indexes and equities is wide of the real index a lot. I found the system slow and the customer service poor

    OK. Haven't had to deal with support too much tbh.

    That's the reason I subscribe to ADVFN and Level 2. I put my bid / offers straight on the exchange rather than taking quotes from IG. It's saved me a ton.

    No Nio? Any reason? Thinking about buying into Nio but they keep going up (10% already today) so keep putting it off till they come down ( but they aren’t!)

    Have a look at Nutmeg and Moneyfarm perhaps, they do the investing for you based on your attitudes on risk. Normally choosing an index fund is another good option, but in my opinion, the pandemic has changed that - there are winning sectors and losing sectors, and stock picking seems much more appropriate.

    I use the Hargreaves Lansdown app and it’s really good. You do have to control yourself though as it’s so easy to buy and sell - I would watch shares and then think “f**k it”, lost a few times doing that before I learned my lesson.

    chucked a few quid in Rolls Royce Friday as I thought there would be a Brexit deal at the weekend and it’s up 7% today.

    I get why people see the potential of crypto currencies but to be honest I just don’t get it as it’s not really transparent, I.e I can’t go and withdraw it and put it under my mattress! Plus there is a very recent thread on here where some poor guy had his virtual wallet emptied.....doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.

    yanto what’s your view on airlines - do you think there is much more to go or have the gains been had?

    Not really researched the sector fully tbh mate. My biggest fk up this year was persisting with Dart / Jet 2 as the fundamentals looked very good. It's high last year was about £20 a share and I got in about £6ish after Covid drops. I was confident in the company as it had a load of cash and no net debt (in fact net debt at the time was about -£500m) so some financial strength to weather the Covid hit summer. This is where I find Stockopedia super helpful as it gives a realtime status of company financials. I'm pretty sure they own their fleet of planes as well (@Biggles will know this better than me).

    Made some good money early on, built up quite a large position (about 2000 shares) but then it pulled back to quite a large negative position for me. It started to creep back up and I slowly sold out of the position to reduce exposure (at a profit). I sold off my final 200 shares at about £9.5 each on a Friday and on the following Monday, the stock jumped 30%. This was 2-3 weeks ago. Gutted after persisting with it for 6 months, but thems the breaks ! I actually bought back in, in the last couple of weeks at about £11 but a smaller position.

    @Biggles is your man for this, but I think Jet2 is a pretty healthy company compared to many other airlines.

    I’ve looked at some airlines, Jet2, looking at pre-covid prices theres not much headroom. Easy Jet seems to have some decent headroom if we get back to pre-covid prices, but I reckon it’ll be at least next summer before we see that once vaccines are dished out and people get confidant about traveling.

    That’s just my logic, note saying it’s right.

    I would suggest start reading the financial press on a regular basis to help build up your knowledge and an awareness of financial matters/companies/sectors. Take your time and don’t rush into anything.

    Persisting with shares when you shouldn’t is a tough lesson to learn, we have all done it so I wouldn’t beat yourself up. I’ve currently done the same with UFO (aim stock silver miner so big risk), 30% down now but can’t bring myself to get out and recycle it into something else just yet in case it turns.

    I’m not too up on the airlines either to be honest but my simple logic tells me easyJet has got to be worth a punt as they are exposed to Brexit as much as they are COVID and with both the vaccine and the good chances of a Brexit deal now (regardless of what the media say) I reckon they must be in for a good 20% rise before year end.

    Going to spend the rest of this evening doing research now as my mrs has just flicked on that made in Chelsea sh1te :suicide:

    Good call Jon. Short term volatility but decent upside in 12 months. Currently burning cash but enough to keep them going.

    Yeah, I'm not really beating myself up too much. It was still a nice profitable trade by a couple of grand from memory. I just kick myself that after sticking with it for about 6m and convinced it would come good because the financials supported it, I missed out on a 30% gain by a couple of weeks as I was more keen to de-risk rather than let it run a bit longer !

    I bought in some xrp last night and its already up £150 just overnight. I've only bought 1000 units but thought it was worth the gamble.

    I'm looking at cinewolrd too but not 100% on whether they're going to make a full recovery. I know the shares went up from last week.

    Also kicking myself with Jeremy I was reluctant to buy in around March at circa £3 and they've hit £13 now

    Good shout pal. I dropped £1k in yesterday. If I had sold overnight I would have been £750 up. Dropped abit but still up. See where the predictions go, seems to be very varied between $5 and $200 dependent on what you read :rolleyes:

    Yeh xrp has gone nuts hasn’t it. I’m really tempted to chuck more in although I’m reluctant as I’m stingey and The buy in is a fair bit more than my previous buy ins

    with what it can go to, short term $5 is optimistic by the end of the year, Iv read experts say long term 45-55$ a unit.

    What are you using to buy ripple?

    I was considering taking an additional position via cmc markets/IG but not sure if I should just buy the actual coins

    Tempting isn't it .... my car fund account is cash rich at the moment having sold the M4 recently so theoretically its money I could afford to lose ... not prepared to risk it all but tempted to drop a fair chunk in :think:
