A punt for £500

Hi all

I'm going to have £500 dropping into my SIPP soon by my SIPP provider as a bonus for transfers in. As it's free money and low value, I'm very happy to take a high risk with this and just wondered if there are any longer term growth suggestions from any contributors? I have been thinking of plumping for a Lithium etf (EPIC: LIT) owing to the possibilities with future battery tech etc.

All my responsibility of course, but am very open to ideas!

ATB, OLTB.

Has anyone ever considered a small punt on a sugar futures ETF?

I haven't done any research and I'm not an expert. My only interest is that I note that the price appears to be at the bottom of a 10 year range.

There'd be many factors to consider of course with supply/demand and governmental interference at the top of the list.

Interesting. Might be fun to join you with a £500 punt if something interesting comes up on the thread !

I read that Corn is at a 10 year low and might be ripe for an upturn. But don't know much about it. Commodities in general appear to be undervalued but of course that's personal opinion.

Coincidental? ;-)
