If you want to invest in the stock market, you need to do it with your own money – don't borrow money from others to do it. Or, don't borrow money from yourself to do it either (like using a credit card).
Avoid any instrument over-geared to make money. Don’t invest in market using borrowed money, especially if you are a new investor. Any adverse market fluctuations may force you to sell your position and you could owe a lot of money.
Simply get started investing from your savings – that's it!
