Sorry for your loss.
Investing in stocks and forex trading is a risky business, as you say, and you could potentially lose more money than your original investment if you are not careful.
In my opinion asking this kind of question is more like rolling a dice in a casino- you are practically gambling.
If you are serious about trading, invest in yourself first, learn trading here. Read up on stock trading, strategies, world economies. There is not get rich quick in this environment I'm afraid: if there was, everyone would be doing it!
Good luck, all the best to you
