Recommended Posts

We seem to have a rise in the number of bulls at the moment, there not bringing much to the table in reasoning but they are feisty...

Why this sudden rise in bullishness?

Desperation...no seriously...it is a coping strategy for dealing with their cognitive dissonance...no one likes to accept that they are well and truly f*****.

They think the government will be able to bail out everyone and every company until things get back to "normal".

They are yet to appreciate that the government is as impotent as a centenarian eunuch with a viagra allergy who has consumed 12 pints of Carlsberg special brew and has only a picture of Kirsty Allsopp for stimulus.

Are you sure you're not imagining things?

I'm one who will definitely turn back to being a bull at some point. But I've not reached that point - a quick glance at the graph tells you that.

Its darkest just before dawn, but its still getting darker and I don't mind missing the first few rays of sunshine.

Its just estate agents that have a lot of free time on their hands at the moment. As soon as they start making redundancies and closing local EA offices then the problem will go away.

That is brilliant, I have printed it and stuck it on my wall.

Thanks

Thank you Baldrick.

I would pay anything to see George Osborne get to his feet in the commons, look the Chancellor right in the eyes and then in his best Blackadder voice - "Darling, you are as impotent as .........".

I'll email him straight away.

Mmm I have noted a bit of bullish sentiment, on here and IRL - so I'm not dismissing it out of hand.

I think the ultra-low Tracker IR's have improved confidence, maybe another tranche will be suckered in to today's 'bargains'.

Remember 2004/5 seemed a nailed on certaintly for collapse. This taught me a valuable lesson:

Never underestimate the retardation of the British Public

Can't see a bottom on housing for years tho.

But 2004/2005 was house prices in isolation, the could and did use IR's to stimulate the market again. Totally different ball game to then, while it's now included in the graphs at the time there was little or no sign of it being any different than it had been.

I'd like to see Any Other Political Party do a poster with Snot Gobbler bothering a kid to the caption @Buddy can you spare a dime?@

Any politicos etc on here, you are welcome to my idea for free: I regard it as my civic duty.

I think a lot of people put off even thinking about buying until the new year. So I'm not surprised to see that there's a flurry of activity (according to several EAs talking on 5Live yesterday). I call it 'pent-up curiosity' and it will be a short blip.

Similarly, I think a lot of companies put off making painful decisions until the new year and that's why we're seeing so many redundancies now, all of a sudden.

We don't know when the recession will end, but there is a time in the future when recovery will begin. We are nearer to that time now than we were 2 months ago - so some bulls are talking things up again already.

could be people realising how screwed we are and how close to crashing sterling is. A house is pretty tangeable when it comes to your money being eroded away or becoming worthless very quickly. I don't see anything bullish in the average market though, terraces and smaller places are still falling in price aren't they?

The labour government has started to pay even more people 24/7 to churn out crap on the internet.

I think there's a real danger that a sterling crisis could precipitate some serious inflation problems. I agree that in that environment sitting on cash isn't wise.

I am very bullish on the house price crash if that helps ......

I am bullish that I will have snow in Vail when I go at the end of this month ;)
