About to begin it's next leg up.

I like to follow Nadeem Walayat of marketoracle's inflation megatrend theory and have accumulated heavily during the recent downturn (just about breaking even on what I bought today).

It will be an extremely bumpy rollercoaster of a ride but this has been a bull market correction in my opinion.

After last months bum raping I piled in heavily and am now about 5% up plus dividends which are flowing in steadily

Which stock did you buy last month which has already paid you a dividend?

Or have I misunderstood?

I have been buying since February but purchased a large bundle last month.

At present

Expenditure including SD & trade costs £37107

Total value of holding at mid point £38,621

Dividends to date for 2011 £855

I reckon that leaves me about 6.4% up at the end of today

He is a clever man, but he could be wrong this time. The argument is about inflation or deflation and in fact there is both. Unless the sovereign debt problems are actually satisfactorily resolved he will be calling a return to a rising stock market too early in my view. It's all on a knife edge and I beleive there is more down time to do yet. The 30's will tell you that and the big second leg down has not yet happened this time - on that basis we are on the shoulders of the head and shoulders pattern, riding for a much steeper fall. Back then it took 20 years to recover (but we'll accept there was a WW11 in there) .

Only on HPC can folks state the MASIF gains they're getting with no losses in sight lol.

Will I hell plunge into more shares, too risky - from now on trackers only. I see gold's back down now, if it falls below $1700, could be a good time to buy back in.

Whether £1=100 or not it's always good to get on with your neighbours...

Just tired of hearing BS about making the right call and getting 200% back on stellar investments (even though they don't need it as they're 25 t/o with an income of £150k+). Really starting to take everything on here with a very large pinch of salt lol..

His reply to that point is that the market was a lot lower then than now, so the trend either from the '29 peak, or from the '30s bottom, was strongly up. Very useful is you have a 90 year investment horizon.

I don't know where anybody mentioned achieveing stellar investment returns on this thread.

Some of my paper losses are quite stunning at the moment.

I buy very few individual shares and prefer ETFs to track sectors/countries.

The stock market goes up on news of another proven failure of the free market. We might as well move to the point where central banks/governments simply set share prices by decree.

On HPC the market isnt allowed to go up by decree it seems, its about 15% down from a couple of months ago and has gone precisely nowhere the last month+. Its impossible for it to go up or down in a straight line without opposite moves, thats its nature

Daily, weekly moves are really just white noise, maybe its wiser to look at the stockmarket as its own entity, it goes where it wants based on interactions of millions of people at any moment in time, the stock market fundamentally drives the news (by creating the mood) rather than the other way round, it moves and we simply then look for a reason or news as to why its done what its done even if that news is actually irrelevant, its a nice crutch to have,
