Yeah I looked online......looked like it would pretty well be 10 years to break even. I don't plan that far ahead. Although I like the idea of producing my own electricity.

The way I’m looking at it is that the £7,500 would be earning less than 2% in a savings account so since we can afford to do this, i.e. lock up £7,500 for ever, it is a reasonable return.

I don't, really, but I do keep up with it, and we have my husband has an account with a very small balance for dabbling in if we think there's an event we can profit from.  But traders are so hard to predict.  We haven't lost money, but we've only had a few days that I would consider good (Trump's inauguration was my best day).

Do you dabble with forex when it comes to fundamental events or stocks?

I trade forex. Typically trade with price action (trends, patterns etc) rather than fundamental events. I steer clear from them. Trump is making the forex market a pain in the butt because he'll tweet something completely out of the blue and price of Asian pairs will plummet/sky rocket!

I actually haven't initiated a trade since the inauguration.  But I historically traded on technicals at the start, found that the market had become more volatile than when all the books were written, so backed off completely, paid attention to the news and only traded the occasional fundamental.  But we first got into it right before the Swiss franc chaos happened in 2015 (2016?), so we were very cautious, having learned from watching that what can happen when it goes wrong.
