Stock markets around the world made big advances yesterday as investors bet that a combination of strong economic news and more takeover deals will send prices even higher.
Warren Buffett, the world's second richest person, helped the mood by revealing he has made a $14bn (£8bn) long-term bet that stock markets will not collapse
. Berkshire Hathaway, Mr Buffett's investment firm, has sold a form of insurance to financial institutions wanting to protect themselves against a drop in "four major equity indexes" over the next 15 to 20 years

TimeToSellBtls and invest where the real action is! But is it too late to sell that depreciating BTL with tenants that you can't get rid of for months?

But then again Buffett bet against the mighty US $ last year and lost $214m. Bottom line is that there are no profits left in real estate so the money has to go somewhere. My bet is that there will be a big run up but watch out for the summer.

"but it's my pension" and "i'm in it for the long run" ....... surely our best amature BTL buddies wouldn't be so shallow as to dump their prize investment at such short notice!

However those people who invest wisely probably already have done, or have a proportion of their investments in stocks and share's anyway.

Agree. The real investment pros know when to get out and there has been a lot of BTLs on the market lately--the ones that are advertised in the property sections as "no upward chain,"

Pros buy low and they sell high--"sell" being the operative word. With government regulation creeping back into rentals the future for BTL does not look good. Too many people can't afford rents.
