Well considering I have lost 14.75p per share at the moment I reckon I could be at the wrong end of the table....

Anyhow it is a marathon not a sprint

I wonder if I can lose all my money by next November?

Hmmm. Not sure about this one either. The problem with UK Coal is that it's not a pure energy play, but relies heavily on the value of the property portfolio of its former coal mines. With property prices heading the way they are, I'd expect this one to stay weak. But what do I know?

Is there any easy way you can actually invest in FTSE 100 as a whole?

No. You have 10k to spend - you must invest by buying before you can sell.

You can bet on the FTSE of course. There are plenty of ways to do this. I have an account with betfair.con. This is high risk, and although you can make a lot of money very quickly you can lose it just as fast.

However, if you really mean 'invest' then you would need to put your money into a Tracker Fund. Again there are many to choose from. These Funds 'Track' the FTSE by investing huge sums in the the Companies that make up the top 100 companies in the FTSE.

Not so much Tariq. They have lower fees because they dont require fund managers as such. At least if they track the index 100%. Fees should be half of those charged by other investment funds. There will be an initial fee to cover set up and admin costs, though.

Sorry, but I haven't read through all the investments, but I'll put the lot on Biogen Idec. Currently trading at $47.49 To view the link you have to Register or Login

Carl Icahn is ruffling feathers over there at the moment, and it could be interesting. By teh way, do you also take into account currency movements when investing in overseas stock?
