This is the highest risk strategy of all but thrill seekers also know that it can give incredible results if you get it right. CFDs, spread betting, option and currency trading all fall into this category.

If you are looking for very high returns and don’t mind taking the higher risks associated with this type of strategy then this is probably right for you.

However if you do wish to speculate then you should only use those funds that you can afford to lose i.e. what is otherwise known as ‘risk capital’. As a general rule it is not usually advisable to speculate with more than 10% of your total investable assets. In other words if you are prepared to take a high risk it makes sense to speculate only as part of an overall balanced portfolio.
