    Arrow Stocks & Shares & that

    Anyone else on Trading212? I've just signed up with a tenner to have a go with and see what it's all like. Figured if I lose it then it's not the end of the world. Anyone got any shares insights they wish to, ahem, share?

    If you sign up to this app through my link and join Invest or ISA and invest at least £1, we will both get a free share worth upto £100. Here's my link: http://www.trading212.com/invite/FzFsneBk

    Cheers if you use my link. We'll both get a free share within 24 hours. Feel free to just download the app without using my link too, if you want to get involved but don't want a free share.

    Of course you're doing a fucking referral link.

    It's completely pointless. Even if your selected stock sky rockets you'd only gain enough to buy a pint.

    It's easiest just to stick savings in a Stocks and Share ISA and forget about it. Moneyfarm/Nutmeg decent.

    I received a National Grid share (worth £9.50) and Bank of America (worth £20) so not quite.

    I read Giggles’ link and I’m still none the wiser despite the author’s attempts to explain what happened to that kid. I would fancy a dabble at this but I’m totally clueless.

    No point investing a tenner. Scalp/swing trade on an index with the lowest spread at that particular hour (if the market is open the spread is lower). DAX in the morning, Dow in the afternoon/evening and ASX at night.

    Depends where you want to go with it. If you're just pissing about with small stakes then it doesn't really matter. If you're thinking of developing and increasing size over time then get your hands on some beginners books on technicals, fundamentals, psychology, strategy etc. Investopedia's good too.
