Good advice, or in other words "with gearing of no more than 20%"

A low gearing is important in identifying companies with the breathing space to expand......and make you a lot of money on the share price.

A company that has all it's assets tied up as security isn't going to go very far, very quickly.

Would maybe like to buy some shares, but I am a total NOOB. Is there a site that you use to buy & sell shares? They charge you for buying selling on your behalf etc?

I use III Interactive Investor, very good £10 per trade. Avoid the banks as their online sites are more expensive. I have and account with NatWest too and they charge £15.

https://www.iii.co.uk/

Let us know how you get on. Perhaps have a go on a fantasy site like the Yahoo one. £100k to play with.

I have been playing fantasy trading for a few days ! Had a good day on Friday with Niche group and a decent day today with IncaGold. Might be worth keeping an eye on ADH as they are releasing results tomorrow. I am a complete novice and I am still learning.

I have been looking at barclays stockbrokers and its £12.95 per transaction which seems ok. Any other websites worth looking at for tips/news ?

As above III £10 per trade. ADVFN is worth every penny, I only have the silver option but suits my style of trading. Level 2 is fine if you trade larger amounts and are at your computer 24/7. imho, obviously. I had a good day today, on shares and spreadbets.

So Niche up 22% and Incagold 62% today, how much have you made? Excellent returns if you had a few grand on them.

Penny shares will bite you in the bum one day though!
