Ftse 100 Has Record Three Months

Recommended Posts

As has been noted elsewhere on HPC, lots of money has gone into crappy stocks with ridiculous Price/Earnings Ratios, companies with loads of debt and industries with shrinking markets or in need of restructuring.

For what it's worth my defensive stocks are back down to June prices.

FTSE 100 has record three months

The FTSE has been recovering from the effects of the global financial crisis

The FTSE 100 index of leading shares has enjoyed the best three months in its 25-year history.

The index, which has just closed at 5133.9 points, gained 21% between July and September.

Scary given the financial backdrop. :ph34r:

Its inflation.

Assets up all over the place due to QE. Pity the inflation calculation doesn't include asset inflation. Same occurred following Greenspans and Browns low interest policies following dot-com bust. Massive asset inflation and yet we were told inflation was under control

Another crash is inevitable, the only questions is when.

Labour (apart from Brown who inhabits a parallel universe) are hoping after the next election so the Conservatives get the blame.

The British electorate are so dim they will probably actually blame Cameron if it does happen when he is PM.

To be honest it would be hard to forget about, there's evidence of it everywhere.

If the markets turn vicious I can see a crash happening.

'ave a go at this big pictures thing.

No t!ts, alright!

Just for some perspective, the predecessor of the FTSE, the FT30, saw a 150% recovery in the year following the 1973-74 Stock Market crash. Of course, then the markets had an inflation rate of 25% helping them out.

Can't help thinking those gambling on a similar outcome this time could end up getting seriously burnt since there is no sign of earnings (corporate or personal) supporting the higher valuations.

Not that it will make much difference since the period 1975-1980 was hardly a model of financial stability and it is certain that the next 5 years are going to be even more rocky.

BBC was just reporting this - probably the markets will tank tomorrow as a result.

I still think that massive manipulation is going on.

Official secrets act and all that.
