Just some really general questions about high risk vs low risk and the definition of it.
By low risk we are talking about something that the return from it is pretty low but at the same time its safe, probably wont fall out of the sky in any normal economic situation.
But high has has the potential to fluctuate wildly, so would high risk investments be more speculative shares. If you were planning to hold for a long time say 10+ years, would high risk be better because you can always ride out the lows. Or by high risk does it mean theres more chance that you could lose big time and the shares never recover?
