For stock picking I use IG, although I’ve heard interactive brokers is good too.What's the best trading app for iPhone if you're in the UK?
I take it this Robinhood app isn't on the UK app store because it doesn't show in search.
I think I'll get back in to trading with an aim to put small amounts over time in loooong hold companies which I genuinely like.
I completely agree.For stock picking I use IG, although I’ve heard interactive brokers is good too.
For fund picking I use Hargreaves.
imo, retail investors have gotten far, far too hung up on stock picking thanks to access via Robinhood making trading more accessible, and a decade long bull market allowing everyone to make money. If you’re going to buy and hold, I would really recommend just picking a few well managed mutual funds and dripping money into them over time.
I feel as though retail stock picking has gotten way ahead of itself. You hear about the massive wins, but the vast, vast majority would be better over the long term by just dropping money into an etf or mutual fund.
I think so, the more I've learned about Bitcoin the more I see it as a great long term hold... buy £500 and keep it for the next 5 years and you could be sitting on a nice little nest-egg.Is it worth investing £500 in bitcoin? Been thinking about it. Is 500 a good amount or too much/too little?
Cheers. I might put a little into investing in bitcoin then. I don't mind putting in a few hundred quid for the time being, see what happens and then decide if I want to invest more down the line.I think so, the more I've learned about Bitcoin the more I see it as a great long term hold... buy £500 and keep it for the next 5 years and you could be sitting on a nice little nest-egg.
