    Pretty new to me, but going to invest a little bit into a specific company. Does anyone know a basic online website that you can do it on, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Question Marty the broker you use, can I enter the price for profit target and stop loss (to get out with a small loss) on top of setting what price to buy the shares in order to get filled?

    No, you can't, or you couldn't when I signed up anyway, I think HL allow access to all markets, but I'm pritty sure they charge for your accounts.

    Of course however nothing goes up for ever and that's why successfully investors use either trail stop-loss or have a profit target before it hits the top and falls back down again.

    Okay. Suggesting going to SkinBioTherapeutics PLC Chart (SBTX) - Investing.com UK that's where you can monitor your share price. Consider using trail stop to lock in profit in case the chart direction changes. May I ask what price you entered the trade at?

    I use Hargreaves Lansdown to invest in funds and know its possible to buy shares via them. Whilst its free to inveat in funds i do believe they charge to buy individuaal shares. All that information is available on their website though.

    basically they are a loan company and the use your money to loan to clients.
    They spread your money across several loans to a maximum specified amount so not too much of your investment is exposed to any one loan.
    I put some in about 8 months ago and it's doing OK. They said 7% return but I'm currently running at about 5.
    I think you can also put money into different risk levels.
    Your investment is unprotected but that Martin Lewis fella gives it the thumbs up.

    Funding circle and Ratesetter are two of the main ones.

    Clint has a good steer there - use Martin Moneys tips website as a non bias opinion - remember the value of investments can also go down - don't invest more than you can afford to lose - sorry granny died some years ago !
