When you start to invest online don’t treat it lightly. One of the first things you should do is set up a separate account that will hold the funds you have allocated for the purpose. As always do not invest any more than you are happy to lose. I know that this mantra is continually repeated but it is really important that right from the start you follow this rule.
Setting off in the right direction
One decision you will probably have to make is to whether you share your plans with your partner. There are examples of both extremes where couples are happy to be involved together and where one partner is resolutely against any such involvement. If you find yourself in the latter group try to come to an agreement such that both parties can work out an amicable solution. If you hide your activities it is more than likely you will be found out and it is much more difficult to assuage concerns if you are thought to be underhand.
