Living in Neverneverland #finance

Yes, Britain is now living on the never-never. Credit and debt appear to be official policy. The government is trapped in debt and so are most its citizens. The government can just print money and cause inflation which will effectively inflate away debts in sterling terms but not in the terms of the reserve currency, the almighty dollar. The thing now is, the almighty dollar is being devalued too, as are most currencies. A global economy based on ever-expanding currencies which of course lead to property bubbles in our capital cities. We are in Neverneverland but we’re not the only ones!

Surviving a crash in the market #investments

Sometimes it is the whole market that crashes and sometimes it is one or two share prices. To limit the damage, we need to diversify and have some investments not associated with the market.  Then a big drop in the part of your portfolio that is invested in the stock market isn’t quite so damaging.

Wednesbury on a Wednesday #Wednesbury

It is nice and sunny this morning in Wednesbury. I mentioned the History Society last week and I went to the talk last night. Robert Broadbent gave us an interesting talk about the Romans building Hadrian’s wall. I know, I said it was going to be about canals last week. I think I read that on a leaflet. It was still interesting. I nearly nodded off, though, not because I was bored, just tired from lack of sleep. I was told about a Christmas event next month with a buffet, next door in Churchill’s Club, I’ll have to get details; I was too tired to take it all in.

Market makers are often the topic of discussion on the boards of investment forums. They are often blamed for all sorts of things! The London stock exchange has members who are official market makers and guarantee to trade in certain stocks. (more…)
