Re: S&P over 1900

The plan was to stick to 40%. Trouble is I cannot help thinking thoughts like "Europe, EM, UK, etc. looks better value than US, so why not up exposure to them a bit and reduce US?". Overall allocation to shares is 25% and I am happy to [more]

Re: Wind down from income stock

Re: 3rd wave of economic crisis coming?

If Wall Street was the first wave, the Eurozone the second, is China the 3rd wave down?

Re: Do you preserve your initial investment?

Well, I entered the stock market in 1997. At the time I thought the sum originally invested was important, so I put a column for it in my spreadsheet (I've always been obsessive about keeping records). That column is still there to this day. [more]

Re: Three Year Reflection

Hi jfh55,
