I am just wondering what everyone here thinks about online trading websites, you know the ones where you invest in certain currencies or stocks in the hopes or belief that the value will go up and you can then cash out?
There are so many of these websites online and I have no idea where they get my number from but some of them call me from overseas and ask me to join and deposit money to trade.
I am not keen on this simply because as much as you may be educated about how currencies and exchange rates work, or maybe you are a market expert on stocks there truly is no way to be 100% certain that the value of something will go up or down.
The people that phone me tell me it is guaranteed which I sincerely doubt, the way I see it is that it is more like gambling. And if it is such a sure bet why are they so desperate for me to invest anyway?
