Finance and Investments

I am amazed at the number of investors who are pouring money into two of the worst investments in the last 50 years; cash and bonds. If you are thinking of pulling out of the share market I beg you, reconsider.

Sure we don’t know about the markets future but this last period, and currently, is the best buying opportunity I have seen in the last 25 years. The media headlines, as usual, do not reflect this reality.

So don’t stick your money in a sock if you truly believe the end of the world is nigh you are best to use it to buy bottled water, tinned goods, seeds, fortify your home and lock the door.
