    Default Stocks, shares buying advice

    I have a few quid to invest, and since Crypto seems to have gone to shit, are there any financial experts on here that can point me in the right direction for info etc?

    Any good sites you recommend?

    Thanks in advance.

    Look at some ICO offerings for new coins bit easier and better returns than stocks.

    I知 not an expert but from reading around this seems like a smarter option, if you have telegram and are serious about getting into ico let me know and I値l invite you to a syndicate I知 in that gets you good bonus coins etc.

    IMO crypto is all just too much of a gamble still, I知 tempted to put a bit in there but only money I could afford to lose. If a coin takes off then of course and ICO could be profitable but if it doesn稚 then it could go the other way too and the volatility is crazy which makes them good for trading but unnerving for investing.

    Nothings a sure thing, I learned that the hard way by pumping a ton of money into a stock when I was younger and lost almost all of it (paper loss still but I won稚 be getting my money back). Always spread your investment, it痴 tempting to go 殿ll in on one that痴 doing well but it can go down a lot faster than it went up in value.

    Over the past 2 years I have changed my strategy a bit, I was investing in individual shares but didn稚 have time to keep on top of the macro economics and analyse how they壇 affect those industries so I am mainly in diversified funds now. I think in my first year the average returns were 20% across the funds and have remained fairly consistent, I had to sell most of them for a deposit but those I still hold have returned 35-50% over the 2 years (although Brexit/Trump helped as I bought when the market dipped after each event). I'm considering selling out now though and putting the money into a really low risk category of funds as the markets are at all time highs and a lot of uncertainty globally so a fall may be coming.

    I was with TDWaterhouse for trading but they have been bought out by Interactive Investor now. For research there's a site called Trustnet where you can find funds and view their performance over time, cross reference with the fund managers performance etc. Past performance isn't necessarily an indicator of the future but the way I see it, if they have consistently outperformed their class (you compare that fund against a benchmark for its industry) then that's good enough for me. Watch out for management fees too, they are all listed on the site and are what's you will pay the fund manager.

    I won't recommend any to invest in as I'm not an expert at all, this just interests me at a personal level. One that you might want to research though is Vanguard, they have notoriously low management fees and have some highly diversified funds so you aren't over exposed to any one market. I don't own any vanguard shares nor have I ever but they regularly come up in conversation on Reddit financial advice, of course this could be a concerted effort which is why I say to research yourself.

    Not all funds are available on the II platform so I use HL sometimes. I believe HL may be cheaper when buying funds but am not sure, I think they may have no commission on some fund trades.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - Seems the cheapest.

    I'm looking to invest in dividend-paying stocks, commodities and renewable energy.

    All a timing issue.

    I recall messing around with Plus500 when I first bought shares. They had an offer for new mobile clients, 」100 deposit for 」200 free cash, so I went in and bought some shares in a few things that I am just sitting on for another 10 years or so.

    Then went into Lloyds but hated their UI and the fees were pretty poor in comparison to HL.

    ** Oh, and I'm also on Coinbase for Cyrpto, but let's not talk about that.

    I wish the free 」200 was available. I can't find anywhere with any deals like that
