Fact 1: 80% of the ftse100 companies earning are outside the uk

Fact 2: QE2 (speculation) has already, and may continue, to devalue the £ and thus make these earners worth more £.

SO, time to buy into ftse100 trackers?

While I can see the logic, if the earnings are "outside the UK" where are they? Europe? The US...? Aah... :unsure:

The FTSE 100 current constituents.

For even the ones who do most of their business outside the UK do you see more upside than downside risks?

Yes QE may make £ worth less. If it does then UK more people in the UK would struggle to buy whatever your FTSE 100 overseas business are selling, partially hitting their profits. That's just my simple boy view.

Putting your money in the building society would be just about as good as the ftse since the mid/late 90s and more or less including dividends - and that includes the skanks QE operations etc.

In the late 90s they were all saying how wonderful the stock market was but since then allowing for security the building society has been far better. Even under the mattress hasn't been too bad in comparison. Can't see it being much different even though for sure they're going to sort things out in the next 6 weeks :lol:

Mind you the ftse is nearing a fairly critical point so likely that's one of the reasons they're going to rescue things (oh no not again :lol: ) in the next 6 weeks.

I think it may have been the prophet Esau who said "Patience is the mother of virtue"

and an hpc poster who said "if you keep trying to pick bottoms you'll get smelly fingers."

Or something to that effect.
