...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, http://www.fool.com/portfolios.htm, or the Fool School, http://www.fool.com/school.htm, or the Foolish Workshop, http://www.fool.com/workshop/workshop.htm for suggestions? You will be able to educate yourself as to how you want to invest your money, using your own ideas.
