I am either... But I google search and didn't find another costume. I guess it's because McDonald's holds all trademarks and copyrights on Mac Tonight (MoonMan). Only China can help you

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).

Hmmm well that in mind, I think I may wait until I got a bit more stability before I start investing.

I dont have RRSP's, but I do have a government pension fund as a public servant so Im secure for the future.

In my mind, short term = gambling / long term = investing.

Oh!

That explains why the MoonMan suit was up for sale at the same site as the elephant suit.

I thought supernatural activities were involved.

Still, I'm still scared of the MoonMan.

I guess so. It's better to buy low and sell high.

Short term you better be prepared to take a loss, the markets are gripped by fear, there are no safe havens and it's going to get worse before it gets better.

Nobody should play the market short term in my book, unless they do it as a profession AND have a crystal ball.

Long term, a lot of the psychological effects and institutional "swaying" of the market get washed.....you get much closer to returns based on reality.

Apparently the only company that's safe to invest in is Campbel's Soup. Kinda makes sense.

Oh and Marcel Hossa just scored his 10th goal of the KHL season and is tied with some dude named Jagr for the most goals scored. Why did we let him go again? :

Inside information works better than the crystal ball.
