Ftse Down Over 2%

Recommended Posts

Cant have too much sympathy for anyone who is still in the equity markets apart from within his/her pension , its been waiting for another fall that even a blind man could see coming , so its back to where it was 15 years ago WOW, All these tracker deals all these guaranteed equity bonds don't look too good now bet the flashy suit experts are having hard times convincing even the dumb that they are great investments.

We all need to repeat debt is wealth.

This is true - Also, under NO circumstances should we talk our way back into recession. Careless talk costs GDP points after all.

Everythings rosy, keep calm and carry on etc.

Most of our savings are in Israeli shekels - 5.9 to the pound in January, reached a low of 5.42 and is now back up to 5.70 in the wake of the US crisis, in just a few days. Very surprised to see GBP rallying at all bearing in mind the recent 0.2% GDP news - without government borrowing we'd still be deep in recession.

Do you really think we are not in recession? .... after all the government also say there are only 2.65 million unemployed.

whilst id be the first to admit the govt are notorious for overstating UK unemployment by a couple of million, i dont think thats any reason to call into question their opinion on what a recession is

We just need to be positive, think happy thoughts.

Everyone have a beer, relax tomorrow will be a brighter day.

Those trackers that were also buying the FTSE at 3800 in 2008 with 6% yields?,or the Hang Seng at 11000?.Trackers are fantastic investments in volatile markets.The dumb are those who put in a lump sum and try to time the market.

i invested in 2008 during printy printy , money had to go somewhere.

i knew people in 2002 who were buying shares on credit cards.

they did very well.

I took my money out the stockmarket in 2009 after the printy printy money took effect.

The stock markets pretty much back to where i was when I got my money back.

The old myth lie that the stock market is a greta place to invest, goes above inflation, doubles every ten years etc etc etc is dead. Thankfully nothing else has been mis-sold to people with this set of lies in recent years. :blink:
