  1. Just in good fun. Anyway this thread proves there's life in equities yet. I'm away now on my cruise. Can't stay chatting to you guys all day.
  2. As a net buyer for the long term a crash is good for me as I can buy cheaper. Be fearful when others are greedy, be greedy when others are fearful (something like that)
  3. Who is making losses on equities this year?. And an old car is preferable to no car. You can set your losses against your house capital gain at 40%.
  4. Apart from Japs and Asia equities are near all-time highs so in that sense they've topped. With QE and pathetic cash returns, no housing price gains they've still a bit to run - at least till next May IMO. DYOR
  5. You jest. UK, US, Europe, Japs are up 20%+ this year. No sign of stopping with pathetic cash interest rates, QE everywhere, election coming up, RM will get the public interest if a bit of money is made early on. Check the equity bulliten boards and Hargreaves Lansdown, iii for charts before posting blox. Unless its a wind-up (you got me hooked) PS you've started a thread on equities hence, by your logic, equities haven't topped. Ha ha
  6. further, if you buy at 1.15 euros to £ and when you come to sell the £ is 1.40 euros your profit after cgt (if any) will be hit big time. currency fluctuations are often ignored.
  7. Euro hpc may be 30% off peak. But then so is the £ against the euro. Not a big fall in real terms.
  8. Wait, wait. Lets hear Stella's side before making any rash judgements http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/stella-english-how-lost-everything-2317758 (some interesting snippets in there)
  9. Buy, Buy, Buy. http://www.iii.co.uk/articles/118289/royal-mail-priced-go-income-seekers Bye Bye
  10. According to this iii article, QE has already ended. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Viewpoint: The shocking truth about QE By Ken Fisher | Thu, 19th September 2013 - 00:00 Viewpoint: The shocking truth about QE Great news: quantitative easing is ending soon. Yes, you read that right. People fret QE's end will be a bad thing, but it isn't. It's ultra-bullish. How do you know? Britain's economy accelerated after the Bank of England (BoE) quit its own QE lunacy, and virtually no one notices. That's a power
  11. He's probably the only one who would be better off financially by working. Seems he's had it easy, always someone to feed him and put a roof over his head.
  12. Equity markets can give investors hope during tough times Money Observer logo This article was produced by our sister publication Money Observer. By Barry Riley | Fri, 12/04/2013 - 15:42 How can savers and investors dodge the fallout from Chancellor George Osborne and the UK government's "remedy" for our financial woes? We know the problems are mounting for the UK economy when official inflation targets are being abandoned and the country's AAA credit rating has been downgraded. As savers and investors we must adapt, however reluctantly, or we will suffer expensive penalties. This is a
  13. Not sure how, but seems to fit. The Experiment- Part 1 5 monkeys are locked in a cage, a banana was hung from the ceiling and a ladder was placed right underneath it. As predicted, immediately, one of the monkeys would race towards the ladder, to grab the banana. However, as soon as he would start to climb, the researcher would spray the monkey with ice-cold water. but here's the kicker- In addition, he would also spray the other four monkeys… When a second monkey tried to climb the ladder, the researcher would, again, spray the monkey with ice-cold water, As well as the other four
  14. will be interesting to see what it actually goes for.
  15. Same here (Derby area), but good priced ones are going SSTC in days.
