As I mentioned in my blog in September 2020 I started trading. At the moment I invested in 9 stocks. I sold one which I lost money on, the other 9 as of today (14th June 2021) are in green, making money. I had to wait for a few months for a particular stock to start making money. I was confident it would.
I cannot call myself a proficient trader but I am learning. Making some mistakes but moving forward. One thing I learnt and I would repeat to anybody who is thinking about investing: your investment can go up and down. Don't ever invest what you can't lose.
By the way, etoro is one of the platforms where I invest.
