Man...I have a bad feeling about the markets this week. I feel like something big is going to go down tomorrow. They are taking a real beating today, jeez...Close to 500 points.


On a lighter note:

What are you all going to dress up as for Halloween?

This is hearsay. Only the persons who personally know the facts can relate them here... Or do you?

Just like house, gold and oil prices can only go up forever, market prices can now only go down forever. Wow, investing is easy.

It is scary in the short term though.

Stupid cats.

I have a simple approach to this whole thing. Whenever I get my wages, I go out and spend it all. That way as Bob Dylan put it - "When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose"

Much like when times are good on the stock markets, the average investor is screwed no matter what they do. The large institutional investors can buy and sell and make huge swings in the markets and the average joe can only hold on for the ride.

Don't sell now. Don't get suckered into the panic.

If you have some money to invest long term (like 10+ years), now seems to be a good time.....unless you think this is the end of capitalism.

You can get one on eBay, at the same store where I bought that costume... if you email them.

What the heck is up with that side. Are the caracters from this thread being commercialized without our consent?

They are our caracters, we must have our share.

If even one dollar off Brian the talking dog is made without my consent....

Hmmm could be an interesting idea to start investing


(all I got is my government pension fund)

What type of returns could be expected?

I've found this for you...

I created a costume many years ago (the Mac Tonight guy from McDonald's fame) I created the head which was a half moon shape about 3 1/2 feet long out of papermache (sp). I cut holes and inserted white screen for the eyes and created the foundation of the outfit from coat hangers and wire. After the papermache dried, I removed the wire to lessen the weight, with the exception of a head piece to keep it in place. I purchased a huge pair of sunglasses (like elephant size) and glued them into place.

If you are goign to do it, I would recommend you do it with money in your RRSP and money you treat as a long term investment (not look at ups and downs). I would recommend you hold your RRSP investments until, well, you retire.

Returns are tricky. Historically, S&P 500 returns are around 9% per year (keep in mind some years are up, others down...this is the average return over some 75 years). Even if some years are up and others down, if you take a slice of 10 years.....no 10 year down down period since the 1930s.

The past strongly recommends that at your age, you hold stocks (higher returns, lower risk since you have decades). The past doesn't garantee the future though.

The thing to remember is that any type of investment has risk. Even guaranteed certificates of deposit (which have no or little capital loss risk, but significant interest rate risk...in that you can be locked into low returns....which is significant given inflation...if you are making 3% per year and inflation is at 4%...you are losing 1% per year...guaranteed).

Investing is a question of managing risk, not avoiding it (which is not possible).
