Still No Thread On Equities

Recommended Posts

HPC as bellweather?

surely, most of the public have little interest in equities...this is the preserve of HFT and pension funds.

Houses Init... Why put your money in stocks when house prices only ever go up?

By now, everyone knows that the stock market is rigged and that they can't genuinely make money competing with investment banks. they also know that the banks have lovely black boxes that will steal their money.

Retail is dead.

As above

So where do you think it will go from here?

If people start selling where else are they going to put their money bonds, property?

You jest.

UK, US, Europe, Japs are up 20%+ this year. No sign of stopping with pathetic cash interest rates, QE everywhere, election coming up, RM will get the public interest if a bit of money is made early on.

Check the equity bulliten boards and Hargreaves Lansdown, iii for charts before posting blox.

Unless its a wind-up (you got me hooked)

PS you've started a thread on equities hence, by your logic, equities haven't topped. Ha ha

Yes bonds and EMs

Eventually even US$, though not seeing it yet

When I say topped I mean 2007-2009 style.

If Killer Bunny goes back in time and marries his grand-mother will there be no HPC?

Ah, the old temporal time causality paradox - if HPC had never existed house prices would have crashed by 50% in 2003.

Apart from Japs and Asia equities are near all-time highs so in that sense they've topped. With QE and pathetic cash returns, no housing price gains they've still a bit to run - at least till next May IMO.

Even "pathetic cash returns" are preferable to losses!

Who is making losses on equities this year?.

And an old car is preferable to no car.

You can set your losses against your house capital gain at 40%.

As a net buyer for the long term a crash is good for me as I can buy cheaper.

Be fearful when others are greedy, be greedy when others are fearful (something like that)

It depends on what they bought!

Not sure what you mean about old cars.

Offsetting losses against house capital gains is only for second home owners/BTL investors. Primary residence is not subject to CGT.

Just in good fun.

Anyway this thread proves there's life in equities yet.

I'm away now on my cruise. Can't stay chatting to you guys all day.

No, I do not jest. Just bcos you disagree does not make it b0llocks Sir.

There is a strong case to be made.

US Equs up >100% on hot air.

US equs out of whack from everywhere else.

Dow showing the way.Bond rates may have bottomed in Spring 2012.

Margins at all time highs.

China slowing.

JP¥ strengthening v US$.

US$ may have intermediate bottomed and can continue its multi year rally - tho' this one not so confident of.

etc

It is the multiverse theory - every single action, of the trillions of actions every day, creates an entirely new universe. In this way every possible thing that could happen has happened or will happen.

Even as I type there are probably countless universes where posters on HPC are now smugly patting themselves on the back having witnessed a massive house price crash.

What we need is a multi-phasic distrubance of Time and anti-Time in the Space-Time Continnum :unsure:

There is only so much land, so you can't keep building Universes forever, what will happen to the Countryside? :)

I'm not that impressed with this particular Universe, it seems to be broken, is there any mention on how people can switch to another one?

Be careful - you might end up in the evil HPC universe.

The problem with the American market topping is that if it goes down it takes all the other markets with it.

Be ruddy ironic if the US markets tank within hours of Royal Mail floating.
