Total Newbie Investor

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks

I'm a total newbie here and as an investor... I know that right now is quite a volatile time for investments and having a crystal ball would be useful but I don't have one and unless someone has one I can borrow than I'm going to need some pointers.

My old man (Been an armchair trader for years and does ok) has been giving me bits of advice, I'm looking at long term investments for now but happy to learn about short term trading too. I've opened an ISA and have funds in there.

I guess my question is, does anyone have any advice for a brand new investor in what to do?? My old man says look at companies with a good market share and that pay dividends. But then he's also just bought 5 guitars because he's learning to play guitar (Apparently going to sell some to pay of others). 

I am only just getting my head around how things work and undoubtably will mess up but if anyone has any advice, help, suggestions or experiences that might help it would be greatly appreciated.

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
