I am going to dabble a bit in Etoro and only have a very limited ammount of funds to begin ($200). My question is, what are some good investmests both short and long term?. My challenge is to try and see how high i can take the $200

Clue #1. Don't ask investment advice from a bunch of loonies.

Clue #2. LOTS of research!

Etoro is just a betting site n stock performance right? You dont actually own any shares with it from what i read.

They have changed it so you can buy the shares now but unsure how recent that is. I decided to invest in Novrax and Valneva as they upcoming vaccne companys and also Canaopy Growth as i feel cannabis will be legalised or used for medicinal reasons a lot more in next few years

Anyway - Look at the market, look at things you actually use and are interested in. Research is key here. Things like EV, Solar, Renewables etc are probably a good shout. "Alternative medicine" considering the recent US news is probably a "safe bet", invest in a fund which covers a specific area (E.g. Baillie Gifford or Vanguard Trackers)

If you invest in "alternative medicine" you may (but hopefully not) make a buck but you're a cunt if you do.

Exploitative and dangerous - it pushes the vulnerable into eating sugar pills instead of getting proper treatment for their curable cancer.

Invest ethically, if you can.

That's also one of the other things I discovered. If you look at "Money makers" (LMT, RTX..) during world war you're probably going to make money but.. Do you feel right doing it? Ethical investing works, depending on your goal.

Surprised the UK isn't on the list...
Oh yeah don't worry about us were morally sound, we're even friends with Saudi Arabia and they haven't been up to some dodgy shit at all!

I wonder what our price is to drop ethical standards.

What are you on about? What is 'narbis'?

Is it something particularly personal to you. It's a very specific thing you're on about.

I think people took my "alternative medicine" comment as literal alternative medicine. I meant cannabis... :|

Home - Narbis

?

Not sure of the relevance though...
Or whether it's actually double-blind scientifically tested and proven effective or just snake-oil that means kids who need real help are being forced to sit with stupid blinky glasses on for the profits of the unscrupulous.

It's not slang an old English thing it's just somebody trying to write a word down that they've heard and getting it wrong.

I dunno.

Considering his dad was a copper and Urban Dictionary (Which is a very reliable source I'll have you know) says it's copper slang...

Add the two together...

Oh I was talking about balled/bald. I thought you said it was slang but you said it was an old English thing.
