5 Investments For Quick Returns


Are you struggling for cash and need to make a bunch of money in a short amount of time? Well, it is possible to do without getting involved in scams, but there is definitely some risk involved. In my opinion, there are five investment options for realizing quick returns on your money. If they pan out, then you will be able to stay current on your bills. If not, then you won’t be able to pay those bills that weren’t going to be paid anyway! Here are the five quick ways to try to increase your cash:

Options Trading

Instead of investing for the long term (as many wise financial advisers would suggest), when you need cash fast and you have an understanding of the market (or, at the very least, a particular segment of the market such as real estate, retail, etc.), then options trading might be for you. If you can accurately predict if the market will rise or fall in a short period of time, then you can purchase put options or call options and gather your money in a very short period of time.

Purchase on Margin

Keep in mind that this can get incredibly risky, but when you are fairly certain of market swings, then you can increase your returns by investing more. If you are short on cash, then you can make up the rest with margin (which is really a loan for investing). By predicting the market correctly, you can certainly win big with this method. But, by investing with money that isn’t yours, you have to be prepared to pay up if the stock moves in the opposite direction that you expected.

Penny Stocks

I have always had a fascination with penny stocks. Because the cost of one share is so small, you can sometimes purchase thousands of shares without breaking the bank. Then, if the shares go up by just a small amount, you could instantly double your money! Since many of these low-value stocks are on the verge of bankruptcy, there is a very real chance of you losing all of your money. If, however, they pull themselves back from their prior misfortune, then you could rake in some huge earnings.

Forex Trading

Sometimes the stock market gets a little dull because the movement isn’t as fast or as sharp as many would like. If you agree, then I would say that the Forex market is probably where you should start investing. By performing a daily market analysis, many individuals are able to predict the rise and fall of various currencies around the world. If you begin predicting these economic movements correctly, then you could win big in this market in a very short period of time.

The Casino

There is obviously a large risk when it comes to “investing” your money at the casino, but there are times when people do win big. If I were you, I would try my luck at one of the games with the best odds – blackjack. Or, if you have a good poker face, play against individuals at the Texas-Hold-‘Em table. If you are good with numbers, then this could be your avenue to paying those bills.

What is your investment of choice?
