He's around, but he tries to stay out of arguments on the main forum. Possibly because he has more a public profile, possibly because he was getting too worked up when he was posting.

Nope, it's because his ill founded predictions, on where the major indices were headed, were so *offside* he did a rumpelstiltskin and now skulks around a sub forum in the financial section were those with superior knowledge no longer question him/expose his lack of experience...

He hasn't held up his hands to say how spectacularly wrong he was, just 'changed' his mid term predictions and now (as of last week/2 weeks) expects market crashes, no gold going to $3,000 per ounce, no DOW at 15,000 (10,500 by Feb if we recall correctly - the nob)...

TBH and IMHO the guy has major issues, but yes sticking to the one trick pony appearances 'doom-mongering' on house prices suits him, albeit it's old hat now.... Edited by Converted Lurker

There were about 3 main criticizisms made against him.

The guys calling him a charlatan and a fraud maybe had their reasons, I'd just label him as hopelessly out of his depth in terms of knowledge on the *investment* advice he preports to offer <_<

The 15000 DOW by the end of June 09 prediction still makes me laugh - oh yeah and the 2003 peak of the house price boom - LAME-O

I think we would all like to see him post here again. I don't think he should get special dispensation against being teased for his predictions and for throwing his toy out though.. he should just come back and take it like a man ;)

FP clearly has his own agenda as we all do , and was/is a good spokesman for HPC but is also his own worse enemy imo ,
if he started to post regularly on here again it would only be days if not hours before another bun fight started :) Edited by grey shark

Its easy to fault others. What were your predictions? FP predicted gold would rally through the winter months, which it has. He predicted in the media, falls in house prices that others scoffed at. They proved very accurate. I thought we were on the same "side" of this whole debate, except the trolls obviously. I made a fortune from the advice of ones like FP and I'm grateful.

this is interesting, can you be a bit more specific on just how much of a fortune you have made and how?
