...I am a risk taker and want to see the money quadruple in 10 years.

Lessee now ... to quadruple in 10 years means you want to double every 5 years. According to the Rule of 72, to do that you are looking for a return of under 15%/year. That kind of return doesn't sound very risky to me!

Have you looked into the Fool Portfolios,, or the Fool School,, or the Foolish Workshop, for suggestions? You will be able to educate yourself as to how you want to invest your money, using your own ideas.
