500 is way to little. but if you just want to do it for fun then do it. you need atleast 10k to start off really. always split up your portfolio to 5 different stocks.
also if you are only investing 500 dollars, that would cost around 30 dollars to buy and then to trade it which is already 6% of your investment.
