so ba systems share price is £5.25 which is low and there high was in feb this year at £6.69 , when u buy a share it's 0.5% tax, if i sell the share there is no capital gain tax until a certain amount, there is also no trading fee with trading 212 so unless ba systems go bust all i have to do is wait till the share prices go back up and i make money am i missing anything in my logic lol

Correct. Also if you keep hold of the share long enough many companies pay a small dividend per share.

Well yes but say the price goes down 30% more after your purchase, you'll need it to make a 31% gain before you realise any potential profit and since the overall market trend is down this isn't out of the question.

I tried explaining this to a friend who asked me about it but she thought she knew it all (so I wondered why she even asked) and insisted that she'd buy and wait.

The risk is what I have previously outlined. If you don't mind poetntially waiting 3 years to get 4% profit then fine but always remember that stocks usually take the stairs going up and the window going down.

My advice for future would be to split your purchases esp if trading no commissions, don't buy all the shares at once, buy some now and some later. I would also advise doing some fundamental analysis beforehand too in order to support your plan.
