Yes nice work by the boyz. Pimp TV was ramping away pre-market (US session) Cramer literally spitting at the screen, then the boys immediately took it down on NY open brought it back up again.

The colours, I've assigned. Green - looks bullish, Red looks bearish. Blue is neutral. This is just a finger in the wind in the sectors. No surprise the winners are the financials and the home builders - but it has been easier to pick a winner than a loser in the last 12 months. Running up to the general election, the markets are lapping it up.

If you were to take a bet as to which would give you the best return over the next twenty years, FTSE 100 or UK residential property, which would it be?

For me it would be the FTSE 100 by a country mile.

Totally agree. Still looking quite sensibly priced relative to properdee

I'm in the process of selling out off a chunk of my equities portfolio in order to buy a house :(

Mrs JTB's behind this, I can assure you. Maybe the incredibly slow house buying process will fail and I'll get to keep my carefully and slowly built portfolio.

Probably - it is worth reading How to make a million slowly by Lord Lee - he is one of the few people with a million+ ISA. The past decade has been mediocre for equities, but the next decade might be better.

GO RECOVERY!!!!

in inflation adjusted terms we are still nowhere near peak value.

avg 2.5% compound for 15 years is about 50%

we were at 6900 on the FTSE back in 2000.

so we are still about 45% off of that

the only thing that looks even reasonably normal is the index P/E ratio.

FTSE around 16* earnings(long term average about 14.5)

DOW at 29*(long term average around 14.5)

I think there's now something like 400 ISA millionaires. They must have made some barnstorming stock choices, and then kept on making them. I've invested the full whack every single year in equities, going right back to the beginning of PEPS and all the way through ISA's. I think my returns have been pretty good, better than the index for sure, but I'm still quite some ways from being an ISA millionaire!

I call survivorship bias (but take your pick). Nobody writes a book on how they didnt become a millionaire investing in ISAs.

If the FTSE100 was measured in a unit of measure that hadn't been devalued via inflation it would still be nowhere near the highs of 2000.

Moral of the story thus being "dont the buy FTSE in 2000".

Not entirely true but point taken.

FTSE is booming! Oh how the minimum wage and zero hours work slaves rejoiced. The stock Market worshipped by satanists. Let the whole thing burn...

The FTSE 100 is the only asset I will currently trade because in spite of the new record it still looks only about par value.....every other asset class gone to the the moon especially houses and bonds. Golds a bit more tricky to value especially since the 33% crash (in pounds).

Have been trading on the volatilty and bucking the index by a fair margin. However, totally caught out by the February bull having sold out in January and was lucky to get back in at 6784 ten days ago. That's the trouble with volatiltiy trading always a danger that you get caught out on a surge with no holding.

Some would say get a life, but I found the battle yesterday afternoon absolutely compelling as wave after wave of buys were repelled by the 7000 resistance.

Yet when the thin red line was finally broken 7020 was achieved within minutes.
