The fact that we are facing the worst house price crash of all time is still helping builder stocks though:

TAYLOR WIMPEY 37.75 2.75 +7.86%

Whoever is buying these shares must not be listening to the news huh?

:lol::lol::lol:

Seriously though, I think we are about to see some big drops in the SMs, not just the odd 200 pointer, but more like 500-600 point drops. There is not much to look forward to on the economic front with housing doing a LOT worse than the fibbing EAs were telling everyone and all that house debt has imploded leaving the entire system on the verge of structural (not cyclical) collapse.

DJ INDUSTR AVERAGE (DJI:^DJI)

Index Value: 11,010.98

Trade Time: 5:36PM

Change: 218.04 (1.94%)

I don't think the US builder stock is geting many buyers.

So the FTSE is back to where it was in October 2005 and house prices are back to where they were

in 2006, yeah but.......

Hang on, the FTSE is back to where it was a decade ago! All those private pension salesmen who based their pitches on 9% compound annual growth have got some explaining to do.

Not something we should wish for .... we all depend, one way of another on this system! (love it or hate it)

The system needs bringing down and i think that might happen witghout any help from me and whilst we are about it i think it time we kicked the politicians out and started from scratch again as they are all corupt and are not doing as the public want.

i'm off out now to see if i can get someone to stab me.

You just encapsulated in two lines everything that's wrong with private pensions.

I think we are close to a shock now - Freddie and Fannie may provide it along with numerous banks all reporting next week.

I think, if it happens, it will be good for the economy in the longer-term. This recession/crash is going to happen so why not get it over with ASAP and then get on the road to recovery.

Ah, I forgot... the US election.

I'm curious RB. Did you take our self-proclaimed guardian of the FTSE up on his challenge? Looking good if you did.

Back to Sept. '97 prices now. Buy and hold just won't work again until c2017?. The stock markets are for traders only these days. Everyone else should get the **** out and are doing from the look of it.
