Nope… so worried to invest more money over there… feels too risky.

The first rule of stuff like this is “Don’t use money you cant afford to lose”.

So if you aren’t sure and would use money that would hurt you to lose, don’t do it.
Yeah man that’s the one huge mistake i made in my entire life. I wanted to invest my money for making some more… Who knows this could happen… !
Well if you ask me, it’s much better, safer, and more reliable to make money by providing service than investing it on the stock market.
True.
I’ve made more money by gambling than on the stock market (because I never invested anything in the stock market :D ).
btw what kind of gambling ?

Dont answer Blinn!
You will make him lose the remaining cash on that! :D
But yeah, when something sounds “easy money”, it takes a high risk behind.. Invest on yourself, thats the best advice i can give! Goodluck mate! :)

Well is this caused by the recent AP’s twitter hack? Then sorry for you. It’s a hard lesson but I hope you’d move on and cover all the lost amount by hard-working :)

Will try my best… :) Thanks.

A stop loss is a must if you invest in the market.

All i see is just loss; loss and loss, when comes the profit ?

I don’t know how much money you’ve lost (and I don’t wanna know, that’s not the point) but according to the stuff you listed as potential stuff you could’ve bought, I’d say that the amount is not that big. By this I don’t mean to insult or anything, I know that it is a big amount for you, since you had to take loans etc, but my point is that you have good items here which show quality. Stay clear-minded, work more, upload stuff here, do freelancing, and you’ll recover I’m sure.

The main thing I’d like to point out to you – and that’s why I mentioned the amount of money in the first place – is that it’s not all loss loss loss, as you say. I believe you’ve gained a lot of experience, you should be wiser man now.

As others stated above – invest in yourself: attend courses, buy equipment, enjoy life (the most important thing in order not to lose creativity). I hope you’ll come into balance and recover from this loss soon ;)

Things are not black and white, you can invest but money you afford to loose, there are people who make money on stocks too.

So sorry to hear that. I guess it’s true what some say, never invest the money you depend on in stock. It’s like investing into a slot machine.

Hope everything will turn out ok for you!

I thought; i will make double from my investment.

Sorry to hear your troubles, Sbjewel!

The safest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it in your pocket ;)
