Ftse Tanks Again 5750

Recommended Posts

I know, great isn't it. I sold my stocks near the top, and will be able to buy in at a lower price.

Sweet :D

Edit: Looking like the FTSE might break below 5700 :o

TTRTR is a one trick pony, hence his resentment of people making money in things he can't grasp, like stocks or gold.

IR are rising faster than we expected--bond yields surging worldwide.

FTSE down: 151 I have never seen it drop so fast! Glad I went to cash last week--might sell of the rest today and go to 100% cash especially with massive savings rates brewing up :)

Euro dropping 1.278 from today's high of 1.2919. Cheap dollar may ruin export market and cripple the fragile recovery?

One thing that I'm not entirely sure on. You would think the Debt Management companies would be seeing a surge, but they too are getting hit - glad I bailed out last week.

It's just like 2001 all over again...

Does anyone have problems with their online trading accounts btw? In other words, have they pulled the plug yet?

Yes, and this time I got out in time--still about 12% in equities and 8% in bonds, 80% cash ( :) ). Funny how small IR hikes are having such a dramtyic effect. It could be that the markets are on a knife edge due to HPI and the effects of a HPC? The markets have consistently said that HPI has been holding things up here and in the US and both countries are seeing a turning market with IR soaring.

BTLers are going to take a big hit and should have unloaded last year at the top. Now they will all be rushing for the exits together as yields plummet in the face of IR hikes. Some will have followed the maxim: buy low and sell high. Those who sold were wise. Those that didn't, well, join the other sheeple.

In laymans terms - can somebody explain the significance of this? I'm not too clear on stocks and shares. Is this the start of something big - or is it likely to fizzle out - i've been watching all week, and it doesn't seem to have picked up. Thanks.
